I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas

Good morning everyone. How is your day going? Are those presents all wrapped? To help you get creative in your wrapping, today I am displaying what I created for my daughter. Won't she be tickled pink to see this under the Christmas tree? This cute box came packaged with a Rolodex calendar. I kept the box, knowing I wanted to transform it into a gift box. Somehow I think the sentiment is perfect for this gift box. It reads, "...brown paper packages tied up with strings, these are a few of my favourite things." It comes from my daughter's favourite movie--The Sound of Music. If you look closely you will see the verse, and the tag are embellished with micro beads along the edges.

Pink designer paper by Flair. Blue designer paper by Heidi Grace Designs. Large chipboard snowflake by Hero Arts. Sentiment from Stamper's Anonymous. Flourish stamp, by Inkadinkado, embossed with white embossing powder. Embellishments: buttons, punched flowers held by brads, punched pink and white snowflakes, micro beads, vintage image from a Yahoo group I belong to, and ribbon.

I love altered projects! Isn't it fabulous that you can take something ordinary and turn it into something beautiful like your box. Your daughter is sure lucky to have a mom like you Beth!
