Deck The Halls covered box

11 days until Christmas ... Don't forget I'm giving away the “Northern Hearts” stamp set . For each $40 purchase you make from my Stampin’ Up store, I’ll enter your name in the bucket. I’ll be drawing the winning name on Dec 20th. Just CLICK HERE to start shopping. And don't forget the 20% bundles that end on Dec 16th.

Last week, I showed you some quick cards using the Deck The Halls DSP. Today, I'll show you a gift box covered with the Deck The Halls DSP. I found these photo boxes on sale at a craft store. I thought they'd be great for giving treats to some of my friends. At first, I struggled with how to use this gorgeous paper. The collage styling makes it difficult to cut and overlap. I decided to wrap 12 x 4 strips around the corners. And finish with cardstock. I'm pleased with how it turned out.

The card also uses the same DSP. I made an Easel card to decorate the top of the box. It lays flat for easy transportation. Then it stands up as a finishing touch. Oh, I used velcro sticky dots to adhere the card to the box, so it can be removed

And I just read that the Paper Players Challenge this week is to use your favorite Color Combinations. Well, this is my favorite right now. Red is my favorite color, and I love how the Crumb Cake and Early Espresso add to the richness of the Cherry Cobbler. I'm glad I can keep using these colors into Valentines! Please check out all the other favorite color combinations from PP28.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for stopping by!
