Chewing the Cud Limitee Box

I’m so excited to share Chewing the Cud’s Limitée boxes with you!

Viola Sutanto, designer of these wonderful fabric wraps as well as the cute iPhone e-card app, Bon Bon Mots, has put together a limited edition collection of 100 kits filled with goodies to create beautiful, special gifts.

They’re the sort of embellishments and gift wrap accessories that on their own can be hard to find or are often only available in large quantities. Just imagine getting creative with whimsical details like carnival tickets, letterpress hangtags, old library cards and patterned stickers.

This kit is the perfect addition to your personal gift wrap stash and also makes a great gift for sweet friends.

Remember, there’s only 100 of them so if you want one, snag it! If you don’t manage to get your hands on one, a smaller Bon Bon pack is available.
