Well...today is the final day of our 5 Days of Christmas ideas for you. Wow....I'm blown away by the creativity of this team...and our awesome leader...Emma! Such cute projects this week, ladies!
For my project today, I created a little box using one of the large label dies. If you recall, the other week I make a small luminary with one of the smaller tags, and made a little box for the sides to adhere to. You can find it here. Well today I did something similar, just on a larger scale.
Here it is! Cute, right? I love how it came out. If you look, you can see I used the large scallop tag die. I just cut it once, then rotated the die, lined it up just right, and ran it through to get the scallops on the opposite edge too. Then I cut a black mat, and a patterned paper layer, and adhered to the tag piece. I made two of those.
I created a simple box, scoring and folding, and gluing the flaps together. The just glue your decorative panels to that box.
Here is how I did mine. I used the ornament dies and covered them in glitter. I even took fine wire and bent in to look like ornament hangers. White embossed my sentiment and wrapped some twine. Used dimensional adhesive for added interest.
I added my candies and used the teeny tag dies with twine to tie the bag closed. So create the handle, I just cut a narrow strip in black and added a bit smaller strip of designer paper. I hot glued it on the inside and added a red pearl on the outside.
I made a simple bow by layering loops of burlap ribbon, glue them on top of each other, and then hot glue it to the handle. I tied on a couple of jingle bells on using the same twine.
Here's what I used.
So, there you have it. A simple little box can become very pretty when you add some of Emma's super cute products! I hope you had fun this week seeing all the cute projects. Hope to see some of your goodies too. Happy Crafting!
