Hands up, how likes an abnormal shaped box? Or something that is a little different to the norm? Well, today’s project is certainly along those lines. Now I’m not the first person to make a box like this, and I’ve seen far too many to credit a single person. So I thought I’d try my own version – these are quite a large size, and will fit a good quantity of treats.
I haven’t used the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series Paper (DSP) in a while and it is such beautiful paper, that I reached out for it again. The colours are absolutely gorgeous and so is the matching ribbon. The picture below shows the iridescent sheen to the ribbon, which makes it sparkle against any project.
I finish my project off with a tag made from Balmy Blue glimmer paper and a Whisper White stitched circle. The stamp is from the cute Snowman Season stamp set and finished the label well.
Which pattern do you prefer – the watercolour ombre one or the snowflakes?
At this time of year my attention turns to desk top treats that I can make for my colleagues at work – and the treats that can go inside them. Chocolate and sweet treats are often the default goody that I reach for, but there are times when these aren’t suitable and other options are required.
Tealights are one alternative, especially scented ones. The ones I used in this box are different to the usual, they are 6 hour candles which means they are deeper than the normal tealights – fitting 8 in this box.
The Designer Series Paper (DSP) used is Feels like Frost, a gorgeous returning fave from last year – both sides of the paper are lush, aren’t they? I kept the theme focussed around the silver of the paper and finished it off with the silver edged ribbon.
I think it would be a cute table gift as an alternative to sweet treats.
How cute is this gorgeous Polar Bear? Another animal that I get to colour in with my blends – which makes me happy! He looks so happy skating along there.. To make this card, I chose the Designer Series Paper (DSP) to go with the stamp set & my colours went from there. The DSP contains Highland Heather and Pool Party, so this is the colours I used on my Polar Bear to tie the theme together.
Mounting the DSP onto a piece of Highland Heather, I then used the Stitched So Sweetly dies to create a lovely border for my Polar Bear to make him the central focus on the front, finished off with a beautiful ‘For You’ sentiment.
It’s a very simple card, but a lovely one that could quickly be reproduced – I hope you like it!
