Anniversary Gift Box

My husband's and my anniversary is coming up this month.  Actually it is on Thanksgiving this year.  And it is our 10 year anniversary.  If that isn't enough, since I work retail I will be working all weekend for Black Friday and Saturday, so we really can't even do much to celebrate.  But, I know we will have a nice dinner and spend some quality time together, so it all works out in the end.

I made a gift box for part of his present and here it is:

I used one of the new svgs from My Craft Spot for everything: the box, bow, and tag.  The cut file for the entire thing is called Present Box.  I cut it with the Silhouette, sizing it so the base of the box was the size of the mat, so slightly larger than its default size.

Once the bow was all assembled I put a fabric covered brad through the middle of it.

The dark green tag is 3" tall and the light green one is 2 3/4."  I used stamps from My Craft Spot for the sentiments on the tag.  Both "happy anniversary" and "I love you" are from the Always & Forever stamp set, as is the heart.  I added a brown button brad through the hole in the tag and also a moose brad in the empty space between the sentiments.

I am entering this in the current challenge at My Craft Spot, which is to use metal (brads) on your project.
