Graphic 45 Gift Box

Graphic 45 Gift Box 
          Hi friends, it's very ,very hot in Bangalore right now and I have not been crafting or blogging as my craft room with my computer is on the top floor of our house and it's literally a furnace there !! 
       But I had to make a Christmas themed project for my DT post at the Rudolph Days Challenge and so here I am burning the midnight oil [because it's slightly cooler at night]!!
Graphic 45 Time to Flourish
My crafty mojo has been near absent and to try and rectify it I went craft shopping and picked up my first Graphic 45 paper packs!! Woo Hooo am I in love or what!!!
Chocolate Box
I altered this  box [ which housed chocolates gifted to us  by a kind soul!] with my first Graphic 45 paper and added lots of my favorite elements including snow[ using whipped spackle ], cute birds, a chipboard candle stick and chipboard giftbox !

 Added a gorgeous fabric flower trim [gifted to me by my crafter friend Remya] around the box decorated with cute penguins from the Debbie Mumm Harvest and Holiday paper stack. Loved adding a metal clasp to the box and tiny snow laden ribbon roses.

 I am in love with the Spellbinders Magnolia die and keep adding these handmade Magnolias to all my projects these days!!

 Isn't the sparkle just awesome on this festive project? [achieved by spraying with E6000 spray glue and dusting Dress my Craft sparkling dust]

 The "Deck the Halls" is an additional element from Graphic 45 and propped up on foam tape and dressed up with a gorgeous resin crown!

           And now comes my absolute favorite part of this project...the glittering sparkling Cookie Cutter tree cut from foam and shimmering white paper using a gorgeous Poppy Stamps die gifted to me by the super generous Maureen the host of our Rudolph Days Challenge!

 On opening the box..at first it looks like a regular box with handmade goodness inside!

 I made some simple tags using Graphic 45 and Debbie Mumm papers and the Poppy Stamps Pinpoint Main Street Tags die[ my favorite die for tags!]

 On unlatching the clasp on the box....voila...the box swings open into a 3 tiered gift box! The box is sturdy enough to hold tags, decorative chipboard elements and chocolates!!
