Good morning
Where is the time going??!! 7th December already I usually have my tree up by now but it's still in the box! Must get busy with it this week!
To get me in the Christmas spirit Nilda over at the Cuttlebugspot set us a challenge this week to make Christmas bags or boxes for giving Christmas gifts. Well I made a box sort of, it's a tissue box cover so it's like a box and a little gift in one!
I got the template from a CD called Glamour Puss from Cameo Crafts. This Cd has some great templates to print and cut. I handcut the box and embossed with CB 5x7 folder from the OH My Crafts Christmas exclusives, I love being able to emboss larger areas with the larger folders. I then cut 4x 2 1/2" squares in shadow and base with my Cricut and Plantin School cartridge. I used the CB cut and emboss snowflake and dove both cut twice and pop dotted on to the squares then added to the box. I added some irridescent tinsel around the top and adhered irridescent sequins on the dove and snowflake and also on the embossed areas of the box where the berries are on the leaves. Just pop the box over a square box of tissues and voila a nice little Christmas gift!
I took the box round to my mum's yesterday as a little gift for her and she loved it!
Don't forget to pop over to the Cuttlebugspot and see the fabulous bags and boxes the DT have created this week and we would love to see yours! There's a prize for the winner too a £15 voucher for the Craftbarn!
Have a great week everyone!
