Congratulations to Jacque, winner of my November Customer Appreciation Giveaway!
Here's a closer look at a few of them. I made some 'friends' with the stamp from With All My Heart and another from Perfectly Penned, a few others with the fun and whimsical sentiment from Jolliest Time of Year stamp set, and several with sentiments from Four the Holidays.The snowflakes are from Serene Snowflakes. I used a variety of Vanilla Ribbons including the Very Vanilla Velvet Ribbon from the Holiday Mini Catalog which I just love, 5/8" Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon, Very Vanilla 3/8" Taffeta Ribbon and 1/4" Very Vanilla Grosgrain Ribbon.
My favorite part is the lid - can you see it here? I punched a circle in the lid with the 2 1/2" Circle Punch. Then I adhered a 3x3 square of Window Sheet on the inside of the lid with a Mini Glue Dot in each corner. Can you see the reflection of the Window Sheet in the lid cut-out?
I used the beautiful papers from Spice Cake Designer Series Paper to wrap all of these. That led to color combination - More Mustard mats, Very Vanilla cardstock and ribbon and Early Espresso and Pool Party ink colors. I added a touch of sparkle with several Rhinestone Jewels scattered here and there on the snowflakes and flourishes.
My daughter said her favorites were the ones that I stamped first and then added more texture by running the piece through the Big Shot with a Textured Embossing Folder - I used Vintage Wallpaper and Finial Press on a few pieces.
And what will be going into these pretty little Gift Boxes? Cookies! My Technique Club ladies are having our [annual] Cookie Swap and we need to bring our cookies already packaged in sets of six. Just the perfect number for these Kraft Gift Boxes! I am going to print out the recipe for my cookies and tie it on as a Gift Tag to the Ribbon Bows for the finish. I can't wait for December Technique Club!
