Good afternoon! Wow, it's only Monday and it's already a crazy week! The kids are back in school after the holiday and I have been busy creating. ;-) I hope your week is off to a fantastic start!
Today I have an altered project to share with you. I altered this cute little gift box from Taylored Expressions. It is the small box from the Perfect Package Line. These little boxes are so fun, quick and easy to alter! The box has a magnetic closure on the front and it can also fold flat for easy storage.
The designer paper I used to cover the box is from The Merry Days of Christmas collection from My Mind's Eye. The stamps that I used are from A Merry Little Christmas set from JustRite Stampers. I wanted to use the image of the Santa hat and I thought the stamp and the paper would go together perfectly.
Here is a picture of the stamp set A Merry Little Christmas.Here is a close-up picture of the image and sentiment that I used to create a tag for the box. The sentiment is: Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
To create the tag I stamped the sentiment and image twice. I colored in the images using Copic markers for the hat and for the fur on the hat I used a white glaze pen from Sakura. Then I cut out one of the images of the hat and I put foam dots on the back to add some dimension to the tag. I used the Standard Circles Large S4-114 die template from Spellbinders™ to cut/emboss the circle. Leaving the paper in the die template I inked the inside edges with Ranger-Distress Ink Peeled Paint (Green). Then I also used Labels Three S4-189 die template from Spellbinders™ to cut/emboss the label shape for a mat. Once I had the image and the circle and label diecuts made I layered as shown. I also added a few multi-colored twinkles from Taylored Expressions and some deep red colored ribbon and a bow to the front.
