Sweet Honey

Challenges

Secret Crafter (98) - Christmas
Pollycrafts (59) - Add A Little Nature (Poinsettias)

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous SN stamp on the Sugar Nellie Blog in their Christmas Stamp Giveaway. To participate you had to say what you would make, (other than a card), with the stamp. I said that I would make a gift box for my great niece, and here it is! I also made a card to go with it as I thought that would be nice as well. The Sugar Nellie Blog will be showing all the winners creations soon so why not pop over and have a nosey at them all.

This was my first attempt at an 'origami' box which I have wanted to try for some time. I coloured the image with Promarkers and attached with foam pads for a 3D effect. As I wanted white poinsettias I used the reverse side and glittered them adding large gems to the centres for added sparkle. The tag is simply made with Nesties.

For the card I stamped and coloured the image several times and decoupaged it. I hope you like my little creations. Thanks for looking.

Card Recipe
