Caardvark Holiday Hop Day 2
Welcome to Day 2 of the Caardvarks Holiday Hop! Hopefully you have come here from Nathalia's blog during your tour on this hop. If not, please go to the Caardvarks blog to get started on the hop. You will also need to go back to the Caardvarks blog at the end of this hop to leave a comment. You don't want to miss any of the wonderful creations, and there's a chance to win a prize too! :-)
There will be different prizes for each day of the Holiday Hop, so please visit the Caardvarks blog to get started each day from November 1 though 3 (Sunday through Tuesday). You could win a Fall card kit, a Halloween mini album, or a $25 gift certificate to the Creative Cuts and More store. :-)
Day 2 of this Holiday Hop will focus on Pretty Packaging. I've decorated a couple of the Take Out boxes from Creative Cuts and More. These will make some quick and easy packages for your small gifts for Christmas this year. If you are giving out gifts to all your co-workers, or maybe you need small gifts for your child's teachers, these would be perfect.
I used a chipboard Petite Snowflake for the snowflake box. It is covered with some blue distress crackle paint and I simply adhered a button to the front. You could paint these snowflakes any color you wish and you could add glitter. I was going for a country-ish look with the crackle paint. For the handle, I used some twine and tied some turquoise ribbons on the ends.
For the wreath box, I punched out some green branches and glued them down in a circular pattern to form a wreath. I adhered a small cardstock bow and some red dew drops to the wreath and added a small piece of red ribbon for the handle. Easy peasy!
I hope you enjoyed these holiday packages today. As a special surprise, Creative Cuts and More is offering a special discount code for you when you place your order.
