Elzybells Challenge 33 - Christmas Gift/Packaging

Yay! It is that time again for an Elzybells Challenge! This fortnight the challenge has been set by the fab Elizabeth and is to make a Christmas gift/packaging. I have made a pillow box {thanks to the fab inspiration from Leann - thank you!} The pillow box is from the new Bare Essentials range from Papermania, I have first added two Doodlebug Paper Frills to a piece of Doodlebug CS and then stuck this to the box. The Penguin stamped out and coloured lightly with Copics, cut out using Nestabilities die. Ribbon wrapped around and tied in a bow adding a Prima Poinsettia with a button to finish.

I have also made a card to match using the same ingredients with the Sleighing Eskimo stamp and the Mini Messages - Christmas set for the greeting.

Stamps: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Memento Tuxedo Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Doodlebug Designs. ACCESSORIES: Papermania Bare Essentials Pillow Boxes, Nestabilities dies, Ribbon from Dies to Die for, Prima Flowers, Doodlebug Designs buttons, Karen Foster Scrappers Floss, Doodlebug Paper Frills, Copic Spica At You Glitter pen, Copic Markers.

Next fortnight will be out last challenge as DT Members so I hope you can join us. Elzybells is also holding an Advent Calendar this month too, please see the blog for the details.
