JUGs9 3D & Magical Monday Challenges


For this little goodie box, I used a new image I found over at There's Magic In The Air challenge blog. I am new to this site but I just thought this was so adorable! It just so happens that they wanted a 3D and so did the ladies over at Just Us Girls. Hey now, I am all for a 2fer!
This little box came from a template offered by Nina Brackett over at Stamp TV. My base and first band were stamped with snowflakes from the Holiday Hospitality stamp set by Gina K. Designs. I then added a band of printed vellum from Over The Moon Press. All of my sponging was done in shades of purple chalk ink. My image was colored with Copics. I added felt snowflakes with silver brad flakes as my accents. I added a twist of matching silk wired ribbon to the handle as a closure. To my tag I added silver cording. This was such fun! I will use it for a long gift card.
Hope to see you again soon!
