Rustic Gift Box

Friday, December 22, 2017

 If the truth be told, I love wrapping gifts!  I gave my team a box of little treats - nothing much - but the wrapping was a 'wow'!  Making the packaging special, made the "it's-the-thought-that-counts" gift special too!

 I used a box die and cut kraft cardstock and before assembling the box, embossed it with a Richard Garay pines embossing folder.  I used some holiday greenery stamps/dies from Papertrey Ink (Spruce & Sprigs) and a pine cone die from Gina Marie.  The tag is from Lawn Fawn's Tiny Tags die set with a sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Big Scripty Greetings Holiday set.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:

This is their final challenge :(
