Now on to my project. I decorated this plain Martha Stewart gift box that I had purchased last year. The beautiful papers are from the Melissa Frances 5th Avenue collection. The JustRite stamp set is the new June release Merry & Bright. The inks used were Pink Petunia and Pixie Dust from VersaMagic. All the designer papers were distressed with Antique Linen. I ruffled and glued some crepe paper behind the sentiment. I then used Glossy Accents to adhere the glitter around the edges of the ruffles. The shape behind the ornament and the piece of paper folded at the top flap was cut with Spellbinders Labels Thirteen. I used an eyelet border punch and wrapped the strips of DP at the top and bottom of the box. My favorite pearls from Kaiser Craft were used as accents all over. I tied some white seam binding into a bow and adhered it at the top. Also I used an Ivory Burlap String from May Arts along with a mini flower from my stash. These would make cute favors at a Christmas party.
I hope you have enjoyed my project. There is a hidden blog candy up for grabs. Make sure you visit each and every one of these talented ladies and leave them some love on their blog post for a chance to win.
