Upcycled Gift Box

I save small boxes as I often give gift cards or money to younger family members and like to wrap them as a small parcel.  This box had a lovely white decorative finish, but had the company's logo on the top and two sides so I decorated it to cover the logos.


To make this box I used:
     Hundydory 'Tis the Season Designer Decoupage - Winter Bouquet'
     Lili of the Valley 'Classic Christmas' paper
     Gold mirri card
     Upcycled gift box

I'm entering the following challenges:
     Christmas Crafts All Year Round 'Gifts (no cards)'
     Crafty Calendar Challenge 'Christmas in July'
     Merry Little Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes'

To make this card I used:
     7" x 5" tent fold kraft card blank     
     Bugaboo 'Ladybug Daisy Vase' digi stamp
     Desert Diva 'Sentiment 796' free digi stamp
     Promarkers
     Purple pearlescent and white matt card

Let Your Dreams Take Flight

I made this card to send to Dawn for the June Card Chain Challenge and have chosen the Theme Option (CAS, Feathers & Friendship).

I used snippets of paper for the feathers, gluing two pieces together to make the paper double sided as I only attached them along the centre. I also made a few extra feathers which I enclosed with Dawn's card.


To make this card I used:
     6" x 4" cream fleck tent fold card blank
     Hot off the Press 'Feather' die and sentiment stamp
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Snippets of patterned paper
     Small gold bow - upcycled from Christmas card

I am entering the following challenges:
     Allsorts 'Clean and Simple'     
     Die Cut Divas 'Anything Goes'
     Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies 'July Challenge'

This is the lovely card I received from Jane.
