Another One for Christmas!

Hi again,

Thanks for stopping by to see what I have been up to. I found these pics on the blog of a very talented UK Stampin' Up! Demo, Crafty Squirrel. I had a go at recreating the box myself, but could not get the dimensions of the triangle quite right – I have always been spacially challenged, ask any of my maths teachers! Imagine my delight when Crafty Sqirrel posted the link to the templates. You can find them here along with heaps of others on Sara Sandberg's great site.

So, here is my attempt.

Project Recipe: (All products used are, of course, Stampin' Up!)

Stamps: Season of Joy (Spring Mini Catalogue), Illuminated (Standard Wheel)

Cardstock: Old Olive, Real Red, Very Vanilla, River Rock and Dashing Designer Series Paper

Inks: Real Red, Old Olive and Very Vanilla (Craft Ink), Versa Mark

Acessories: Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Fire Rhinestone Brads, 1 3/8 " and 1 ¼ " circle punches, Eyelets, Clear Embossing Powder, Heat tool, Stampin' Dimensionals

The red ponsiettas on the cover of the box were made by inking the stamp first in Versa Mark and then in Real Red ink. I then embossed them with clear embossing powder and cut them out. They are mounted on a dimensional with a red rhinestone brad through the centre, and then onto a circle of Old Olive cardstock.

I love this box because it is big enough to place a gift inside, such as jewellery or gourmet chocolates, but pretty enough to hang on the Christmas Tree. Hope you like it as much as I do. Let me know what you think!
