Hello there Peeps! Well I’m happy to say that the holiday season is upon us. Sadly that also means that winter is upon us. There is one way to combat the elements and that is with a winter survival box filled with essential supplies to get you through. For today’s project I’m turning that idea into a present by tucking all the supplies into a handcrafted gift box using the Carousel Christmas paper collection. Another great thing about this project is I’m re-purposing a box from the recycling bin hooray!!!
I’ve piled on the fussy cut images to create a nice full arrangement. Adding the layers with spacers helps to keep it from looking busy.
Painted and glittered chipboard snowflakes really adds a lovely texture and great detail.
Santa’s hat was glammed up with Sugar Glitter Paste…because glitter makes everything better : )
The sides and back are finished with the patterned papers.
Now it’s time to fill up the box. I’m adding tissues, sunblock, hand sanitizer, and a hydrating lip balm. This is a great gift for teachers or local postal peeps. I’ve created survival packs for the woman who directs traffic at the school during drop off and pick up times and she really appreciated the supplies. You could also fill the box with baked treats, a small gift, or gift card.
Okay that’s all for me. Wishing everyone a happy and productive day : ) G
