Christmas Gift Box - Craft Hoarders

Click to Enlarge

Hi Everyone, Today I am sharing my second post of the month with Craft Hoarders Anonymous. Their challenge this time is called Box It Up. In the description it explains you can make or alter a box as long as you dig deep in to you stash of supplies.

I have made this style of box before so, so if you would like to see how to construct it please look here.

This gift box I used dies and colours of card stock with a Christmas feel adding stickles for some sparkle. My box has been decorated inside and out.

On the underside of my lid I added a large glittered snowflake and a sentiment.

I paper pieced my leaves mesh border to form a decorative strip around the centre of my box.

My Poinsettia I added a little glitter to the edges and a Christmas sentiment ticket.

Please have a look over at Craft Hoarders Anonymous where you will see lots of inspiration and full details for this challenge.

Thanks to Gloria and her Design Team for giving me the opportunity to share my post on their challenge blog, it's been a real pleasure. Good luck to everyone entering Box it Up.

Happy Crafting,

    It really is a gift in itself.
