Day 18


Today's sponsor is

CRAFTY SENTIMENTS DESIGN


We are a small company bringing you a selection of Clear Polymer Stamps, Digital Images, Digital Papers and exclusive Rubber Stamps with a few essential supplies.


PRIZE 3 DIGI IMAGES



Every year I buy my married son and his lovely wife Trish a new ornament for their tree. This year I decided to make a box for the bauble.


I used grey card stock for the box along with some dotty acetate.  The image is called Bauble and Candies available from Crafty Sentiments designs. She is coloured with promarkers. I added faux stitching. The ribbon I used this time is called Jingle Bell ribbon which you can get HERE.
I added a snowflake brad to the bow. I put a band of red sentiment ribbon around the lid. You can find it HERE in the vintage Christmas section. I used a CC board for the folds and had to add acetate as it was working out a bit small in depth. It turned out quite nice as you can now see the bauble through the acetate...a happy accident lol.
