Papertrey January Blog Hop Challenge


Today is the monthly blog hop at Papertrey Ink!  The challenge this month was to use a set that has never seen ink or one that has been collecting dust.  Unfortunately, I have a lot that seem to be collecting dust!  :)  I decided to dust off my Snowfall set to create a little gift box.

I started with the Favor It Box 3 Die.  After diecutting the two sides of the box, I used the Woodgrain Impression Plate inked with Fresh Snow ink to give a "chilly", wind-blown look to the Aqua Mist cardstock.  The next thing I did was create a little vellum pocket for the front of the box using the Library Pocket Die.  I stamped the vellum with snowflakes from the set in Fresh Snow Ink and stamped the sentiment along the bottom of the pocket, assembled the pocket and attached it to the box. 

Next I stamped the mittens in Ocean Tides ink on Aqua Mist cardstock and cut them out.  I stamped a snowflake on each mitten and added some bling.  I attached some Rustic Cream Button Twine to the mittens and tucked one into the pocket and the other is mounted with foam tape outside the pocket.  The last little accent was the white ricrac, for which I used the RicRac Die


Finally I stuffed the box with some white filler.  I thought a Starbuck's Gift card or perhaps some tea would be great tucked in the box!  Thanks for stopping by!  You can visit Nichole's blog to see the rest of the participants!  Have a great day!
