GD: Clare Lloyd Project #3 Festive Gift Box

"Evening everyone, Clare back with my last project for October and tonight I am going to make a little festive gift box. It's never too early to start right"!!


I simply rollered London Bus onto some Smoothy card and created my little gift box net by stamping/heat embossing images from my Nordic inspired Christmas stamps ECL02.



Then I cut it out, scored and glued to fit it all together.



As a closure and finishing touch to my project I used the off cuts of my red card, die cut a couple of little hardware elements using Hardware 1 and then stamped/heat embossed the hardware images from Hot Pick Xtra 05. I attached 2 of the elements onto the main box to make the closure using brads and made a little tag with the rest. These were threaded together using some co-ordinating twine.







Here is my finished festive gift box all filled with chocolates, a perfect little gift for anyone. Needless to say the chocolates aren't going to make it to Christmas, a crafter's perk! I hope I have inspired you to join in with this months challenge.
