Christmas Box

Silver and Gold.  Isn't that what the song the snowman sings in the animated show Rudolph?  I made a Christmas box in those colors: silver and gold {smile}.
I'm a paper hoarder collector.  I love paper.  I love paper crafts.  I love creating beautiful things with paper.  My name is Sharon.  
They say the first step to healing/recovery, is admitting that you have a problem.  Paper, is my problem.

I purchase this beautiful silver and gold holiday pattern paper by Anna Griffin about 5/+ years ago.  Saving it, for the perfect paper craft.  And today, I made that perfect paper craft. . .  a decorated gift box!  I am selling these at my craft fair shows, again this year.

I stamped and heat embossed the kraft boxes, with a variety of images: polka dots, doilies, text, and vintage wall paper.  (Just a lovely little addition.)  I wrapped each box with a different mix of pattern papers.  I added a 'bow' and a 'tag' (space to write the recipients name).  Complete!
So, all you have to do, is slide off the pattern paper (belly band), fold the pattern paper flat, and write a name/message, place the gift inside the box, and then slide the pattern paper back on.  Viola! This present is wrapped!
I'll be selling this gift box, as well as others that I have made, at this Saturday's Arts and Craft Fair @ Cleveland Middle School, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Hope to see you there!
