Gift Box and Tag


Howdy, peeps!  Sneaking in this afternoon (before I start baking some cookies) with a little gift box and tag with a country feel:  


This little box is one of my favorites, but I can’t find it on SCS and I am pretty sure that’s where I got it!  I like to make these and fill them with candy and a gift card for my nieces and nephews for Christmas!   It was cut from a kraft Christmas paper slab I got recently; I used SU’s Holiday Collection Framelit to cut out the Christmas tree opening, then used white Stazon to stamp some snowflakes on a piece of acetate and backed the opening with it:


I added a glimmer paper star and a sentiment I had made for another card, but ended up not using!  Glad to get that off my desk!  I added a little “bow” from some of the crinkly paper stuff that I can’t remember the name of:


And since I had the Christmas tree diecut also laying on my desk, I made a tag, (which I don’t normally do because they get tossed in the trash), but the CASual Fridays challenge 80 this week is tags, so I went for it!


A scrap of Cherry Cobbler, another glimmer star and it was done!  The box is for The Kraft Journal’s Make it Monday challenge of Holiday Gifts.  Thanks for visiting today!

I took a little walk with Cassidy up to my SIL’s yesterday, as she had all four of her grandchildren there, ranging in age from from 2 weeks to 2 1/2 years!  What a fun day!  Cassidy was trying to play with one-year-old Jack, but every time she gave him a toy, he threw it on the floor…which he thought was great fun, but Cassidy didn’t understand the game!



She said, “HERE….TAKE IT!”  Can you see that look of frustration?!  LOL!

Love the box, LeAnne! I am planning to get crafty this weekend and making little treat boxes is on the agenda. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love Cassidy's look of exasperation/frustration in the last photo. :)

ha ha LeAnne, too cute. I love the box and tag. Wow that little guy is learning too early to say I am doing that you do it yourself. LOL! Thanks for sharing.
Hugs, Bev

Lovin' that box, and the tag is perfect, too! That's the crayon box, right? Will have to give it a try - I like seeing it all made up. Beautifully done! Awww...those two kiddos are adorable! Hugs...
