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 !

Graphic 45 Gift Box 
 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!
Christmas Box
           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!
Poppy Stamps Cookie Cutter Tree
 On opening the box..at first it looks like a regular box with handmade goodness inside!
Shaped Box
 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!]
Shaped Box with Tags
 And hehe there are more magnolias and some gorgeous burlap sticker elements!

 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!!

I had so much fun altering this box and I think it was just right to get my mojo back! When I am feeling more clever...I will whip up a Tutorial for you!!What do you say my friends....?

  29. This layered box is gorgeous. Oh my...my mind is racing with ideas of how to use it!

    I am goingto watch for the tutorial and give it a try. I think you should havea Mr Linky and let people link up their decorated boxes too! It would sure be fun to see what people created with their supplies.

    Now I haveto find a three layered box...hmmmmm...

    Thanks for being on my design team. Your creativity is so appreciated!

  30. Me again...forgot to say that I hope you get some relief from the heat...
    Could you add a portable air conditioner to the craft room?

    I am always hot so I have my craft room in the basement. It is lovely in the summer but I need slippers and a sweater in the winter!
