I had some time after dinner to get out my Christmas stamping stash to see what I had and to start my cards, treat bags and trinket boxes. I just happens upon this challenge from Lawnfanatics to create a gift package. Those who know me can recall this was my first “love” and how all this paper crafting fun began for me. So I jumped right in and made a couple of treat boxes. On with the box design.
I used the Lawn Fawn Tiny Gift Box die and the Winter Tiny Tags. I cut the box from a 6×6 DSP from Pink Paislee called Merry & Bright. I have had it for a while and don’t recall where it is from. I cut the snowflake tag and then turned it around and cut it again so that the tag portion cut away and I was left with just the snowflake.
The snowflake was glued to the lid and the end of it I’d hang over just slightly but worked ok as I was able to get it to glue down and fold along the scored box lines. The green snowflake has a silver design and the red one has gold. I layered a white circle with the edges sponged in the coordinating gold or silver Delicata ink. The next layer is a smaller circle in a gold or silver metallic foil paper from American Crafts. The final layer is a stamped snowflake in the Delicata ink. The snowflake stamp and die are from an Art Impressions set.
I topped of the snowflake center with a dot of marker in the matching color and then a jewel Nuvo drop in key lime and strawberry coulis. I also used a bit of Wink of Stella on the red and green snowflakes.
I am so happy to have found this challenge. Be sure to check out the challenge blog for more fun and inspiration.
Thanks for stopping by and as always thank you for you kind comments.
