Let is Snow box

Every year I buy these little boxes at Hobby Lobby. They come in several shapes and sizes: square, rectangle, oval, circle and heart. I find them back in the wood area. They are priced at .99, but are always on sale so I grab a few then. They are made of a thick cardboard material making them a perfect surface to alter. It's also a great way to use up some scrap paper too. I start off by measuring and cutting all my paper out. I like to leave just a little bit of the cardboard surface showing on the edges. You could easily paint it before adding your paper as well. The top circle was cut out with a Nestabilitie. I attach the paper with modpodge, let it dry and then I go over the top of the paper with modpodge again to help seal the paper and protect it. The silver words at the bottom are some Stampendous stickers I found at Archiver's last year. I attached the bow with Crystal Effects. Just a quick and easy little container to dress up a gift. I love putting little Christmas ornaments in them to give out to friends and family. Here is one I did up last year. Thanks for stopping by today! Good luck getting all of your Christmas crafts completed!

Paper: Basic Grey -Figgy Other: box from Hobby Lobby, modpodge, Stampendous Class A 'Peel Stickers, Martha Stewart Cloud Twill (Michael's), Crystal Effects, circle Nestabilitie
