Enjoy The Bestie Moment

Sometimes we all need to just ENJOY THE MOMENT.
Here is a cute reminder.  This decorated wooden box is a perfect gift or addition to your desk.

You can pick up these cute wooden boxes or crates at your local craft store for about a dollar.
It is decorated with Sherri Baldy's My Besties Designer Papers from the "Cupcakes" digital paper pack.
The sweet image is a new Fluffy "Coffee" Bestie colored printable.  The sheet comes with 4 precolored images that I cut out with my Cricut Explore's Print & Cut feature.

I used all 4 to create this 3D effect.  You can watch my short video on the making of this box to see how I cut each layer.  Click HERE to watch the video on my YouTube channel jjgz4ever 

I also decorated the inside of the box in case it is sat on a desk where it would be seen from both directions.

This is a fun and easy project that would make a great gift or home decor item.  I hope this gives you some ideas.
