Christmas in a Box...

A very talented CTMH sistah created a Christmas in a Box. This is my version of her creation. I first have to say thank you to Lisa Stenz for sharing her Christmas in a Box (Memory Keeper) and her instructions to make the inside divider. Lisa, you're awesome! ;o)

I am doing a Christmas card workshop at my home this coming Saturday and will show my guests this cool little project. It will give them some ideas as to what they can do with their leftover B&T papers from the card workshop.



For the Pointsettia flower, I took some pink Big Pinks flowers and trimmed two of them to have pointed petals. I sponged ink onto one with Cranberry and the other with Garnet. I took another pink flower and cut 5 petals off, cutting to the center point of the flower and creating a point - the curved end is hidden under the main flower piece. I sponged New England Ivy ink on them and used them for the leaves. I took my left over pink flower remnant and used my 1/2" circle punch and punched out 3 circles. I sponged Honey ink onto those and pop-dotted them and used them in the center of my flower. I then covered them with Liquid Glass and then sprinked them with Prisma Glitter.

You did a fabulous job on your Christmas in a box. Lisa was so clever to think of that. I'm sure your attendees will love it and want to do it as well.

As always, your artwork never disappoints.

I've been enjoying your blog and your beautiful artwork for quite some time. How do you do the divider inside the "Christmas in a Box?"

This would make a lovely gift!
