Today I'm participating in the November Papertrey Ink Blog Hop. Here is the inspiration piece. Lovely white presents tied with colorful ribbons under the tree!
I was inspired by the white paper the red ribbons and the tags!
I made a little 2 1/2" x 3 3/4" x 3/4" gift box.
I made my box using the book cover die from Betsy's newest Make It Market Kit - Fairy Tale Christmas. The box piece was cut with the Matchbox Base Die
(which I actually got with Betsy's prior Make It Market Kit - All Through the House).
I die cut one of the tags from Tremendous Tags, added a die cut holly using a die and the patterned paper from the Fairy Tale Christmas kit. I looped a piece of Marischino Twine through the hole on the tag. The 'tis the SEASON' stamp is from the newly released Enchanted Forest stamp set.
I lined the inside cover and bottom of the box with red Bitty Star Basics paper .
Before I added the paper on the cover, I wrapped a piece of Pure Poppy Grosgrain ribbon vertically around the cover, taping the ends on the inside - then the star paper covered up the tape.
Then I wrapped a 20" piece of Pure Poppy grosgrain around the box horizontally gluing it to the box on the back to hold it in place when untied.
A gift card fits perfectly inside this box - and it's deep enough to hold a small gift - like a bracelet or earrings or even a bar of designer soap!
Now I'm off to check out how everyone else was inspired today! You'll find the PTI Blog hop here.
