Can You Have Too Many Holiday Boxes?



Well ladies, it is Monday.....Again!  It seems like the weeks are just flying by for me!  It's hard to believe it's almost Thanksgiving and then on to Christmas!   We are supposed to have rain on Thanksgiving and then colder weather and maybe a flake or two along the way!  Just the thing to really put me in the Christmas Spirit! 

This morning I want to share with you another little box I made for the coming Holidays!  This little box will hold some little goodies for a special person in my life!  I stamped an image and sentiment from JustRite (Old Fashioned Christmas).  I stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink onto watercolor paper and colored with Ranger Distress Inks.  I used the Spellbinders Dies, Standard circles Large to cut out the image and then I layered it onto a Lattice Pendant also cut out of watercolor paper.  I distressed the edges of the pendant with Distress Ink  (Vintage Photo).  Then I added the flowers which are some more of the ones I made a little while back.  I used a punch to make the leaves and twigs and put glitter on these and also on the stamen.  A few little pearls were added to the stocking and this is ready to go!  The box was made with Gina K Designs Pure Luxury Heavy Card Stock.  I just love that stuff!  It has such a good bulk about it and is wonderful for making boxes! 

So there you have it!  I hope you enjoy this.  I have several more to make before the Holidays and I will share them when I can!  Have a wonderful week and be sure to take a little time just for you.  (Breathe!)

Glenda,

This box is GORGEOUS! I love how you added the artificial blooms and well, the whole focal point is just to die for! I stood around in the floral section at our local store yesterday trying to think of ways to do something like this on a few boxes I wanted to decorate and I just couldn't come up with anything (I left the store with NOTHING)... I love when I can visit (stalk) your blog and get inspiration (steal) from your ideas! :-) Seriously, you are an inspiration... thank you! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

No, you can never have too many holiday boxes!! Yours is just fantastic! Who wouldn't want to receive this?? You wouldn't even have to put anything in it!
