Winter Box

Hi everyone! I'm really getting into this winter season. I'm so so happy that it is raining here. Southern California is always in a drought-state, so any rain we can get is welcomed. We really do live in a desert, so it doesn't rain much ever. But enough about the rain already.
These stamps are from the Winter Wonderland collection over at the Paper Garden Projects store. Aren't they just the cutest? I got these cute little boxes from the Dollar Tree store. This was a super easy project. I measured the box. Each side was 2-3/4" square. I cut a strip of the striped paper from the Frosted Winter paper kit and used a dark red piece of paper from the same kit for the lid. I'm sure there must be an easier way to make the lid from one piece of cardstock, but I couldn't figure it out. Just one of those days.
I stamped the images on white cardstock as well as on colored cardstock. I paper-pieced the images on the white cardstock and then cut out the whole image and adhered it to the box with tacky glue. I accented the snow and colored the faces with Copics. I added some dimension to the box lid with some Liquid Pearls. See? Wasn't that easy? Oh and I tied it off with a simple bow. Ta da! Try one for yourself. This would be a great way to wrap a box in a unique way for that special gift for someone.
Oh and the secret word is CRUNCHY!
Have fun at the blog hop!!
