For belly band: cut a 1.75 x 12 inch strip of yellow designer paper from the Buttons and Blooms Paper Collection and a 1 inch strip of the dark blue. Create a lace border for each side with the Borders Essentials die. Layer a lace border on both sides of the yellow strip and layer the dark blue strip on top. Use the box pattern to get the fold pattern for the belly band, make it slightly larger so that it moves smoothly over the box.
Cut out the sentiment tag and the yellow striped tag from the paper collection with the dies from the Ornamental Tags Die.
Adhere buttons to the front of the belly band and the flowers, leaves, bow and tags to the top, as shown.
