Wrap up the Holidays with Creations by AR - Day 3



It's all about Gift Wrapping!  From December 2nd - 9th,  the Creations by AR Design Team is sharing ideas for presenting holiday gifts using four new templates from Creations by AR! Be sure to join us daily on the Creations by AR FaceBook Page, so that you don't miss any of the fabulous projects!  Continue reading below, to see how you can enter to win one one of the Creations by AR Templates I'm showcasing on my blog today!

Today, I'm showcasing three of the new templates, all projects use the Bo Bunny Silver & Gold pattern paper collection, and were cut using the Silhouette Cameo.  These fabulous template are also available as PDF Files for those who might not yet own an electronic cutting machine.  If you are using a Silhouette Machine to cut your projects, be sure to see Adela's You Tube Video on how to Resize your SVG Files and View Score/Cut Lines.




While I loved the larger size of the Gift Tower Box, I opted to reduce the size of the files using the Silhouette Software, and created a miniature version that's the perfect size for a Christmas Ornament.  I adhered all pieces with Scor-Tape, then pieced a hole in the center of the small box lid and added an ornament hanger. To embellish the box I added Vintage Brown Seam Binding a Prima Poinsettia and a small tag stamped with a sentiment from Our Daily Bread Designs Ornate Borders Sentiments stamp set.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Ornate Borders Sentiments
Ink - Cherry Cobbler, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Vanilla
Other - Silhouette Cameo, Creations by AR Gift Tower Box SVG File, Scor-Tape, Vintage Brown Seam Binding, Prima Flower, Ornament Hanger, Ink Blending Tool, Bo Bunny Silver & Gold Collection

Challenge Entered - Ribbon Carousel #88
I love this Swirl Top Box, and can see it filled with small gifts, gift cards or candy!  To embellish the box I added a paper bow using the It's Bow Easy SVG File, embellishing the center with an acrylic button.

Ink - Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Silhouette Cameo, Creations by AR Swirl Top Box SVG File/It's Bow Easy SVG File, Acrylic Button, Glue Dots, Bo Bunny Silver & Gold Collection, Ink Blending Tool, Scor-Tape



My last project features the Triangle Compact.  This box is super easy to assemble, and like the Swirl Top Box would be perfect filled with candy.  To embellish my Triangle Compact Box, I added a stamped/die cut flower using Our Daily Bread Designs Ornate Borders and Flower stamp set, die cutting the flower using the ODBD Custom Ornate Borders & Flower Die.  I added leaves and a swirl using the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die, and a stamped tag using the Ornate Borders and Flower stamp set along with the Ornate Borders Sentiments and ODBD Custom Orante Borders & Flower Die.

Details:
Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Ornate Borders and Flower, Ornate Borders Sentiments
