Little Gift Box


This thing is tiny.  It could hold a little gift like jewelry.

I used the Wrap it Up Cricut Cartridge to cut it out.

To make the snowflake stand out I used some Stickles in Waterfall.  I LOVE the look of colored Stickles on white paper like that to create another color without having to add another layer of paper.

For the sides I started off using a border punch by Martha Stewart called Doily Lace on some shimmery blue cardstock.  Then I wrapped it around the box.

I used some pink ribbon that has a cool crinkled texture over the blue cardstock.

On top of that I added some lavender ribbon with little snowflakes on it.

I'm really happy with how this came out and it was pretty quick to put together.  The downside is after I did all this to the box I realized I made it pretty stinkin hard to open!  *LOL*  I will manage to slip a gift inside it, but it may get ruined the second the person opens it.  

Hugs to all! I miss everyone!  I haven't been checking out my favorite blogs lately and I'd love to catch up with ya'll soon :)
