Box in a Bag

Isn't this box in a bag cute?! Box in a bags are not new, but they are new to me. This is the first one I've ever made, and I love it. I didn't do anything fancy to it, but with this beautiful paper, Holiday Lounge (115676), you don't need to add anything fancy.
I love the colors and shapes used in Holiday Lounge. You can find it on page 162 of the idea book and catalog.
This is called a box in a bag because the inside base is a box base. I should have taken a picture before I assembled it.
The strip along the outside bottom is just a 1 inch strip that I scalloped with the scallop border punch.
I used to not like to make boxes because I am too impatient to use a lot of sticky strip. I have learned however that you can assemble boxes using Tombow Multi Purpose Adhesive. It is a really aggressive adhesive that sets up quickly. I used it on the inside base, but I do recommend sticky strip for the scalloped strip on the outside bottom.
I found a tutorial for making this box in a bag at Splitcoast Stampers on their resource page.
Oh, by the way this is one of the projects my stamp club will be making on Monday.
Thanks for looking.
