Gift Box for Christmas Decorations

I made lots of friends and family sets of Walnut Christmas tree decorations a few years ago, and recently my sister asked for some more, her theme being pink, white and silver. So I set about making another 12 decorations for her. Once made I wanted a box to present them in that she could also use to store them in together with those I made her before.

Linda had given me some strong colourful boxes she no longer needed, and I remembered one of them was pink. Then  I selected some patterned papers from Papermaze - Sugarplums by Doodlebug Designs.

I decorated the box with two papers from the collection - Tiny Trimmings for the top & Christmas Trim for the sides. I used a Sizzix die to cut the lettering from corrugated cardboard, and painted them with Distress Paint (acrylic paints). They were then sprayed with pink iridescent glitter spray. Difficult to see the sparkle in the photos. I added some ribbon and a bow.

Inside of the box - lined with egg carton covered in Christmas tissue paper. with room to add the existing decorations.

Merry Christmas Sylvie
Thanks for looking
