Festive Flurry Ornament Kit
I have just enough time before heading off to weekend activities to show you the tag box I made for a gift exchange with my Stamping to Share Downline Group. I used the Festive Flurry Ornament Kit to create the gorgeous snowflakes. It takes a while to hot glue everything so you have to be patient! I might be a slow worker, but I think it took me around two hours to create this box from start to finish and then I had four additional snowflakes left over from the kit to use as tags. (Well, actually three because I had what you would call a "trial and error" snowflake when I was first getting started that ended up in garbage! lol!)
Here is a close up view of the center of the wreath that adorns the tag box. I used the Expressions Thinlit Die with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets and stuck the Silver Glimmer die cut onto a piece of vellum card stock that I cut to look like a banner. Where the snowflakes overlap the vellum on the left side is where I glued the banner onto the wreath.
I used one of my empty everyday occasions boxes and since only the outside edge of the glimmer paper shows, I cut out the center portion. I followed that frame layer up with a layer of Island indigo paper and that is what I glued the snowflakes onto. I just kind of squashed the snowflakes together and when they looked good, I lifted each up in place and glued it down. The banner was the finishing touch.
Some of my downline thought I should make another one and frame it and I was going to do that, but then I couldn't find just the right frame . . . but I was only looking around here at home. I might of had better luck going to a store! haha! Anyway, I did decide to make another one, but I made it just like the first one with the purpose of storing my Christmas tags in it. And, it does lean up nicely against the wall on a counter or a shelf to add a lot of sparkle and Christmas to cheer to any room.
Hope you are have a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by Stamping to Share!!
