FCCB Challenge #89 - Present Time

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I'd planned on getting some of my Christmas shopping done the last couple of days but I procrastinated :( Now we are another week closer and I still have lots of shopping to do and I'm running out of time!

The challenge this week at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog is Present Time....make a gift, gift packaging or use a gift cut. For my project, I made a gift box for a Christmas tree ornament (one gift down, several to go ;)
The snowflake box is from Wrap it up, and I used the fit to page feature, which cut at 11 1/2".  The paper is from The Paper Studio. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz fired brick distress ink.
The tags are Spellbinders Nestabilities dies and I used the Tim Holtz Sizzex sheet music embossing folder and inked the edges with fired brick. The "No Peeking" and "A Gift For You" stamps are from K Andrew Designs Winter Wishes set. To purchase your own set of stamps, click HERE!
I just love this box cut. The top is a snowflake and I added pearls to the edges and ribbon. I cut a snowflake also from the Wrap it Up cart and attached all the layers with foam tape for dimension. I added fishing line to the snowflake so it can hang from a Christmas tree.

I am also entering this in the Little Scrap Pieces Copy Cat Friday Challenge :)

Now it's your turn! Stop by the FCCB blog to see all of the projects the amazing Design Team has come up with for this challenge! Don't forget to link your "Present Time" projects up as well!! I can't wait to see what you create!!

  11. Love that you made an ornament that coordinates with your cute little box. I had no idea this on Wrap It Up either! It's just darling...and I hear you about the shopping thing. I am out of here this morning to get some stuff done. My son's 9th birthday is the 22nd...serious shopping needed. Can't resist visiting my favorite blogger friends before I go.
