Merry Christmas Gift Box

10/16/19 Winner at A Bit More Time To Craft!
10/31/19 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Team Open Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! It October 1st and it’s time for another fun challenge over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #15 – October Anything Christmas Goes. I created a fun Christmas gift box with coordinating bow using my We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3- Punch Board. A fun time was had by all, lol!

I used paper and stickers from A Perfect Christmas Collection by Echo Park for this gift box. I embellished the sentiment sticker on the top with some smoke-colored rhinestones and a tiny bit of alcohol marker coloring.

I adhered strips of the red and black ‘flannel’ paper down the sides and bottom to resemble wrapped ribbon. I used a tiny round magnet closure.

And here’s one final look at the inside, complete with another sentiment sticker. I’m totally loving how this turned out! Hmmmm… wonder what I should put in it?!
