It's another Magical Monday already!

Good Monday morning!

We've woken up to snow on the ground this morning so this weeks image at 'There's Magic in the Air' is perfect - 'Snowy Flight'. My teamie, Nilla, hosts the challenge this week which is 'Anything BUT a card'. The choice is endless here, so why not hop on over to TMITA and grab this freebie image from Nina and play along! There's a fab prize up for grabs too!

For my project I decided on this criss-cross box which I found over on Nichole Heady's blog here. I embossed the cardstock with the snowflake embossing folder before I taped the box together. Snowy is coloured with my copics then cut out and adhered to the box with 3D foam squares. I ran the ribbon around the box. I then took a separate piece and looped them together, then sewed it on the sewing machine to hold the loops. I punched out some snowflakes with the MS punch and placed one over the top of the stitching. A dot of stickles in the middle adds some sparkle!
To finish the box off, I've filled it with a sachet of hot chocolate, some marshmallows and a candy cane! I think I will be making some more of these as little christmas gifts for the boys' friends. It really was an easy project and Nina's super image definitely ups the cuteness factor!!!
Well, thanks for popping over today! I hope the visit was worth your while and that you have time to leave a comment. I wish you all a beautiful day. As I look out my window, the snow is beginning to fall gently and I'm really starting to feel christmassy! Have a great day everyone!

Okay, Danielle, tell me I'm not crazy - does you blog wallpaper keep changing?? I could swear it started out a lovely lavendar with flowers I was admiring and then it was a Christmas stripe with red and green stars and now this lovely snowflake design with brown ribbon - what's the verdict - am I nuts or not?????????? :)

This box is awesome and so perfect for this image! I love what you did with it. You also mentioned that you were going to make a few more for your "boy's friends". When I first saw your project, I immediately thought to myself that this was a great "boy" project. Love all the detail to. Thanks for sharing this! Best, Curt

Kim said...

This is such a great idea!! I actually made a "Snowman Soup" gift a couple of years ago and what you have is pretty close to it! (Actually I think it's all of it!) Maybe put the poem on the back? But it's perfect as it is so no need to change it! Thanks for the great inspiration!

Aloha, Kim
