Christmas Projects

I decided it was finally time to post some pictures of some gifts I made for Christmas. Doesn't Christmas seem like a long time ago now?!

I made this box out of Bazzill black card stock (it measures 4"x4") and then cut some black and white designer paper and adhered it to all the sides. The lid is 4" with 1 1/2" sides. I printed the sentiment from my computer and I used a butterfly stamp from Papertrey Ink's Butterfly Kisses set. I stamped it in black on red card stock and covered it with clear embossing powder for a nice shine. The butterfly is cut out by hand, I made antennas out of black wire, and glued the whole thing to the box top.


Finally, I tied a sheer white ribbon around the lid of the box.


Inside the box are little slips of paper on which loved ones of the recipient wrote nice things for her to read. It was a big hit!


My mother loves a certain kind of candy from a local shop so I gave her some of those but decided to jazz them up a little bit. I used small frosted tin tie bags from Papertrey Ink and made little covers for the tops of the bags. This one has milk chocolate candies and I used some decorative Christmas poinsettia paper, a poinsettia stamp from Verve's Christmas Poinsettia set, and adhesive pearls for the center of the flower.


The dark chocolate version of the candies went into a separate bag and I used Verve's Ornamental Christmas set, silver embossing powder, blue Bazzill card stock, and silver ribbon from Papertrey Ink.
Ok, I think I'm ready to move on from Christmas now!
