My project for you today is this Squeeze Top Box that I made with the Zany Zoo Bundle – 161315. The Zany Zoo Bundle will be available on May 2nd and it includes the Zany Zoo Stamp Set – 161305 and Zany Zoo Dies – 161314.

The box was made with Box Template 21 using Lemon Lime Twist Cardstock – 144245. The designer series paper is in the new Brights Collection that will also be available on May 2nd.

Our embellishment is the Pastel Adhesive Backed Sequins and the ribbon is the Ribbon Duo Combo Pack – 161318
