November Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop - Winter Wonders

Hello Hello my friends! I'm happy to be hopping with the Paper Pumpkin Possibilities group again!  This month's Paper Pumpkin kit "Winter Gifts" was absolutely AMAZING!!! Stunning gift tags that could easily be used as ornaments, that could also easily be converted into cards and more!  If you received this kit, you're in for a special treat today!  I can't wait to share my project and send you along the hop to see everyone else's projects as well! Sheer Joy!!

I decided to turn some of my "EXTRA" bits into a fantastic little gift box! With Christmas right around the corner, I will be needing beautiful boxes for smaller gift items.  This fits the bill perfectly! And the best part is that I didn't take away from any of my tags! Paper Pumpkin generally includes a few extra pieces and that is what all of this was! YAY!!!

The Outer Wrap is a 2 3/4" x 6 1/2" strip of Pool Party Cardstock, scored at 2 3/4" and 3 3/4" on the long side. 

The Box insert is a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" square piece of Early Espresso Cardstock scored at 1" all around.  This is a standard "simple box" that I've done for you many times before. It's one of my "GO-TO" for quick and simple. :-) 

I used Tear N Tape to attach the box to the inside of the wrap. I didn't want to worry about it falling out later! Nice and Snug!

I used roughly 22" of the included ribbon across the outside of the wrap to tie it closed.  You'll want to attach this first and then layer the Designer Series Paper over the top to sandwich it in and keep it secured to the box. 

The DSP come from the Gather Together paper pack. I absolutely LOVE this paper and have used it a lot recently! lol.  

You'll need:
(2) 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" squares for the front and back
(1) 3/4" x 2 1/2" strip for the spine

Once you've got the DSP layers on, it's all about decorating the box!  The extra holly leaves, pine sprigs, and red circle made a very pretty decoration to my box. I love the way it turned out and I hope the recipient loves it too!
