Good Morning! I'm here to share my DT project for the R is for Recycling plus Ribbons or Rhinestones Challenge on the ABC Christmas Challenge.
I have opted to recycle a box that I had stashed away in case I needed a box for gift wrapping. I have a feeling that it will make a much better presentation now.
I started by measuring all of the sides of the box and cutting all of my papers a quarter of an inch smaller. This great paper is from Fancy Pants and as it double sided I have opted to use both sides of the paper.
This great image is from Sparkle Creations, I have coloured it with Copics and paper pieced the Umbrella with a tiny star print from Basic Grey to match her robe. I have embellished using some tiny snowflake ornaments that I picked up last Christmas and I have added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.
On the back of the box, I have added a sentiment and embellished with more flowers and a heart punch from Martha Stewart.
As no gift would be complete without a way to identify the recipient I have added a diecut tag and tied it all up with a big bow.
I hope that you will participate in the challenge. We are sponsored this week by Digital Delights who have offered up a great prize for one lucky recipients. For further inspiration, have a look at the rest of the fabulous DT projects and a list of hints and tips that can all be found here.
