Bloggers Challenge - Holiday Gifts

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Ornament Challenge, this weeks challenge is Holiday Gifts!

If you are like me you are probably frantically getting your last minute gifts ready!  I created an adorable gift package using Bo Bunny Papers, Top Dog Dies and stamps from North Coast Creations and Kitchen Sink Stamps!

I like to use the dies for alternative purposes.  To create my packaging I used the following Top Dog Dies (Circle Mini Album Die TW022 and the box from the Scallop Box Die TW013) 



I die cut the Scallop Box Bottom and Circle Mini Album from Espresso card stock, die cutting the Circle Mini Album twice to have a front and back panel. I then die cut the Circle Mini Album from Bo Bunny pattern paper, die cutting four panels to cover the front and back panels of the espresso card stock.

I adhered the pattern paper panels to the Espresso card stock panel and assembled the box using Scor-Tape.



I then adhered the box to the Circle Mini Album using Scor-Tape.



To embellish the front, I die cut the Cherish Doilies & Tags Dies (TC027) set from Cherry Cobbler card stock and Bo Bunny pattern paper.  I layered the smaller pattern paper scallop onto the Cherry Cobbler Scallop, then added the die cut letters JOY from pattern paper using the Vintage Alphabet Die (TC018).  To further embellish I added some Zva Creative Crystal Gems, Vintage Brown Seam Binding and a flourish die cut from Hunter card stock using the Leafy Flourishes Die Set (TC016).  The tag on the packaging was die cut using the Darby Doilies Tag Dies Set (TC025) and Cherish Doilies & Tags Dies (TC027), stamped with a sentiment from North Coast Creations Holly Jolly stamp set, the smaller tag uses a sentiment from Kitchen Sink Stamps . To embellish the tag I added flourishes die cut from Hunter card stock using the Leafy Flourishes Die Set and a Zva Creative Crystal Gem.
