TIOT #46- Box It Up

Our challenge today is to box it up! Create a box-large or small--that could be used for gift giving this holiday season.
Be sure to check out Susana's store blog, Follow Your Heart, to see how you can play along with us and also to see the other fantastic creations from the other design team members. 
I'm going to be getting Annabelle her first cross necklace soon so I thought a little mini pizza box would be perfect to give it to her in or maybe to put some yummy Christmas candy in.





(Ack! I noticed in my photos that some of the edge papers were pulling away from the box, I've fixed it but didn't have time to re-photograph it! So just pretend it's perfect when you look at it! LOL!)

What I did:
I started out by making the box using these directions. Next I picked out the papers I was going to use so I'd have an idea of a color scheme. I stamped Milla onto my cardstock with memento ink and colored her with copics. I added moonlight smooch to her bracelet, and shimmerz to her tights. I used stickles on the bow to the present.
I finished off the box by adhering all the papers, adding the image and adding a few embellishments.

Oh Danni, I think Annabelle is goig to love it. I remember when my oldest daughther got her first cross necklace. And she still has it and she will be 16 next month!! Where does the time go?? It's about time to get my little one a necklace too. Only if she wouldn't lose it.. I think she would. She can't keep up with anything!! Maybe in 2 more years!!
