The challenge over at JUGS#9this week is to make your best holiday gift box or bag made from a template. I didn't use a template for this box because I learned how to make a box for anything by reading Sharon Johnson's blog where she has a great tutorial for making boxes. I made this box using PTI white cardstock and decorated it with PTI dsp (hugs and thanks Silke) and ribbon, including a matching tag. Here are the cards that are going into the box. I used 3 different Sarah Kay images and coordinated the water coloring to match the cardstock. Each card has a different embossed top note die cut that color coordinates with the card base. I stamped the images on water color paper and colored them using Tombows, then cut them with a Nestabilities Labels 4. I added a little matching ribbon on each one too. The sentiments were done with a word window and a modern label punch, and each is different. I used a rolling Inkadinkado stamp for those. This set is going to my neighbor because she's such a thoughtful and kind person and we're extremely fortunate to have her (and her DH) living next door!
That's my best boxed gift so far this year, but I'm working on more, so hopefully I'll have more to share with you soon!
Enjoy your weekend and thanks for the fun challenge ladies!
