More of Christmas

Morning and hello! It's already November 18th, can you believe it? Wasn't it July last week? Time do fly by don't it? All my posts at the moment seems to be Christmassy and so is this one. I have no card for you today but a simple altered round box that might become Christmas gift wrap when the big day come. That is if I can get the lid to work like it should. 😉 It has probably expanded a bit when the gesso went on so it's hard work to get it on and off. Hope it will be better when it's totally dry again.

Today I am presenting the new challenge over at the Winter Wonderland Challenge blog and our theme is poinsettias or snow is falling. Either theme is fine by us for you to use. I have gone with the flowers this time.

The box is from a set from IKEA that I bought a year ago or so. All in lovely bright green that wasn't really the colour of the day how to speak. I have painted the whole thing with gesso before I covered it with some dp's from Maja Design. I had already cut of the banner of the papers so I don't know from what collection it is. Probably last years Christmas collection.

I used both front and second side of the paper. The box has a funny gap between the lid and body of the box so there is a space between them both that you can't really do nothing with as it would make it even harder to close and open. I took some rose lace on the lid to cover some of it up with out covering it how to speak. And then I used a thin cotton lace at the bottom. I think that one is from Prima.

The poinsettias are made with a die from Magnolia Sweden. I used some craft and red card stock to make them as I was in no mood at all to colour when I made this project. The leafs are made with a MS punch and the metal that shows under the flowers are metal snowflakes that I really love and bought a really big pack of a month ago or so. I covered the flowers in red stickles from TH and some dry glitter on top of that for a frosty look.

Sponsoring this challenge is Crafty Sentiments that offers three digis for one lucky winner. How great isn't that?

Well then, let the weekend begin. I hope you find some time to relax and do what makes you  happy. For me it will be to start planning the stuff that I hope to do to prepare for Christmas. I look forward to that cosy time. Playing games and having fun with family.

Take care,

Love n hugs
