Recently, I had a stamping first - I finished an entire Project Life collection. All 100 cards and the entire accessory pack were gone - WHOA, right?! And that meant I had a beautiful, sturdy box left. And I can't just throw something like that away!
The divided inside was the source of my inspiration, and it called for a christmas giftable. But first, that box needed some decoration!
This Christmas Specialty Designer Series Paper is thinner than regular DSP, which means it was perfectly malleable to wrap the box. Using a Bone Folder to loosen the fibres of the paper and Fast Fuse adhesive to stick it on, the box was covered and ready for embellishment in no time! A faux-wrap of burlap ribbon ensures the box opens normally, and the embellishment is adhered only to the top.
And inside? Check it out.
In what turned out to be one of my most labour-intensive and time-consuming projects EVER, I came up with this collection of cards, tags, a matching gift box, and a pen. The little divided slots were perfect to package everything up and keep it organized!
I wanted each card and tag to be unique in its own way, but the collection to be cohesive as a whole. By using the same paper - This Christmas - and a simplified group of embellishments, it was easy to coordinate the cards and tags to match each other, as well as the box they're packaged in.
Gold metallic doilies and gold-accented ribbon add a little bit of bling.
Embossed images add a festive touch.
The sentiments in Oh, What Fun and Peace This Christmas coordinate beautifully together.
The Simply Scored scoring tool can help create some fun embellishments.
And punches add interest with ease.
I usually struggle to make tags, but sticking with the same set of supplies really made things easy.
They'll be perfect on your holiday gifts, won't they?
I'm so happy with how this collection turned out; it was worth every late night I put into it!
