As a continuing part of the celebration CC&M will be giving away a FUN Christmas Card Kit! After you have finished the blog hop, return to Die Cut Diva and follow the directions.
Okay, so for my projects I decided to make some gift boxes for the holidays. This little guy is all ready for the winter season, in his hat, scarf and ear muffs! :) For this project I used the CC&M peek a view box.
I used Shimmerz Olive Branch Spritz on the band of the hat and Baby's Breath Spritz on the flower to add a little sparkle.
The nose (some folded paper) and a few pearls were painted with Wed Wagon Shimmerz.

The oval box was covered with patterned paper, border stickers and rub-ons from the Pink Paislee, Mistletoe & Company collection.
The large chipboard snowflake was painted with a cream and light blue acrylic paint first. Then it was sprayed with some Shimmerz Treasured Hymn Spritz. The tips of the snowflake were then covered with patterned paper and pearls were added. In the picture above, you can see the snowflakes were layered and adhered to the box.
