Sesame Street Gift Boxes with Beth

My baby recently turned one and I decided to go with a Sesame Street theme for his party.  I had to splurge and get this SS paper pad when I saw it online at Joann Fabrics.  It is so adorable and it was PERFECT for what I had in mind to make.  I knew exactly what I was going to make when I saw the Make A Wish SVG Kit at SVG Attic.  The gift box in that set is so cute!  I especially love the bow on top :)  I sized all the box parts at 12.8" wide to make the boxes big enough to hold some chunky cars that my little one was getting for his birthday.  Well, I went a little overboard and made three of these boxes...but they were so easy to make so it didn't take me a lot of time.

Here is the first box.  I embossed the bow with a star embossing folder to compliment the stars on the lid.  I also used brown chalk around the bow and the box's side panels to add depth.  The two stripes of blue "ribbon" on the top are simply rectangles of cardstock that I cut at 1.5" wide.
 This box was made in the same way except I used a circles embossing folder on the bow.
 On this one I did not emboss the bow and I used real ribbon (1.5" wide) to decorate the lid.
Here is what they look like all you see why I had to get this paper to use, don't you!
