Ringo's Memory Box - Spring

This photo was taken shortly after Ringo kitten was found by my son. He was one lone kitten out in the big yard, no others around , no mommy to be seen. We never did see any others and don't know where he came from or how he got out in the middle of the large yard all alone. He was being a curious kitten and crawled up into a CD storage box underneath the computer desk. He was soooo tiny.

All supplies used from Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted.

Cut a portion of a circle from Basic Gray card stock. Stamp with Stripes background stamp. Glue to box.

Cut a strip of going Gray card stock. Tear the bottom edge and distress the top. Stamp with the foot print from the Meow Meow stamp set.

Wrap a piece of Basic Black 5/8" grosgrain ribbon around the light gray piece, attach with a Jumbo decorative eyelet and tie a knot bow. Glue to the box.

Crop photo and mount to Whisper White and Basic black card stock. TIP: I covered my photos with pieces of scrapbook page protectors before adhering to the card stock mats. Simply lay the photo down, lightly score around the edges, allow at least a 1/2" to tape down to the back and cut out with scissors.

Attach matted photo to box with dimensionals.

Wrap striped ribbon (unknown manufacturer) around the top of the box. Adhere with double stick tape. 

Attach metal letters (unknown manufacturer) with brads. I plan on moving the lid around to each side that I will have on display during the seasons. I'll be moving it to the Fall side before long !

Thanks for looking =) 

all votes are much appreciated !
