First, I painted the box an off-white color. Then I covered the sides with Cosmo Cricket Oh Joy paper. YUM! I stamped the Bethlehem image on Cream shimmer paper in Memento Rich Cocoa ink, then colored it with Copic markers.Here is a closer look at the image:
To finish off the box, I cut the word "noel" out of chipboard using my Cuttlebug Red Tag alphabet. I used Jen's idea from this stinkin cute project and painted the letters with acrylic paint, then dipped them in glitter before it dried. Like the ribbon, the letters coordinate too, even though my photo doesn't really make it look that way. *sigh* Then I wrapped chocolate ribbon around the handle of the box.
I think this will be a really cute box to hold a little gift for a friend, or also to hold holiday cards as we start receiving them. You can see all the fabulous projects the design team created HERE.
Have a fabulous Monday!
