Christmas Boxes

I had to wait to post these since they are gifts for my mom and brother. My mom checks my blog almost daily and didn't want to ruin the surprise. I used my Gypsy to size everything and all the patterned paper is from the Merry Christmas Stack by DCWV. The solid papers came from my stash.

These are three gift boxes I made for some small gifts that I gave to my mom and my brother. The pillow box is for a coffee gift card for my mom, as is the armadillo tree box. Inside, there is a small carved armadillo that I got her when I went to Belize, hence the armadillo on the front. The pillow box was cut from Wrap It Up at 6." I created a band to go around the box using a border from the Martha Stewart Seasonal Cake Art cartridge. It is cut at 1 1/4" and then wrapped around the box. My mug is cut from Everday Pop Up Cards at 3 1/2." The snowflake on the mug is from Winter Lace, cut at 1 1/4." I added some star dust Stickles on the steam and some lime green Stickles to the snowflake.

For the armadillo box I used the tree-shaped box on Tags, Bags, Boxes & More. The armadillo is from Birthday Bash, cut at 2." His eyes and nose are black pearls and I used a candy cane sticker to give him a little Christmas treat. I finished off the box with a shimmery red bow.

This little box is a gift for my brother. I got him a carved turtle when I was in Belize and this is the box I created for it. The box is from Wrap It Up. I cut the turtle at 2" from Four Legged Friends and his Santa hat is from Pooh and Friends, cut at 1."
