Thursday, September 29, 2011
Hello All!! I hope you are having a great week!!  I am sorry for my absence.  Between packing, legal stuff for the house, and a computer that refuses to cooperate, I have been able to get on the computer like I would have liked.

Anywho...today I have a fun gift box to share with you using a beautiful sneak peek from Our Daily Bread Designs called Holiday Ornament tags which will be released on Saturday!!!!!   These tags coordinate with Spellbinders Holiday Ornament tags dies.  I just love the versatility of these stamps!!



For my gift box I used the Box #2 Big XL die from Stampin up.  These make the perfect gift to put just a few candies in or something.  My tags are embossed in gold and distressed with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain and outlined with a gold leafing pen.  The flower on the top of the box is made of felt.  I just love this emerald green ribbon from May Arts (available at Really Reasonable Ribbon here) but have had a hard time matching it up to my dp in my stash until today...isn't it a gorgeous color. The designer paper is DCWV Holiday Collection.  This pack is full of papers perfect for vintage creations and includes a lot of the kraft color.  The flower is made with felt.

This box is part of a set...I hope to show the rest of my set at the ODBD blog hop on Saturday.  We hope to see you there!!

Ooo, I agree that ribbon is a gorgeous color! Thanks for sharing your amazing creation with us this week at Top Tip Tuesday!

Phyllis S said...

Chris, the gift box and tags are a great idea and I hope to try some, but I especially love the fact that the inside of your card is decorated! So often we just stop at the front and then it's plain inside. This will encourage me to "finish" my cards by not leaving the inside blank.
