Holiday Gift Container Challenge-BBTB2

Happy Monday my crafty friends! Today at BBTB2 the challenge is to make a holiday gift container and our sweet leader, Susan, gave us this challenge. Easy challenge, right?! Uh not so much for me. I just couldn't make up my mind what I wanted to do. Then I waited so long trying to decide, that I didn't have much time to get my challenge in. lol So I went with someone easy. I made a little box that I will either place an ornament in or else some candy and a gift card for our mail person. I used the CTMH Artiste cart to cut out this box, using a DCWV holiday stack from last year I think. I also used MCT's stitched rosette dies, scallop & stitched circle die, and all around the holidays stamp and die set on my little cracker box. Simple, but makes for a cute gift box. I used red and green twine to tie up the ends and a little walnut distress ink to ink around my edges.  It a nice sized box, I cut it on the recommended size of 11.50", so it will hold a nice ornament in it or even some good treats and a gift card. I hope that you will go see what awesome containers my design team sisters have for you-trust me you will be inspired!! Then go cut out a holiday container and link up with us. You know we always love it when you get crafty with us. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me today, if you have any question let me know. Crafty hugs, Brenda

Brenda, you honey, you! This box is darling!! I adore the papers you used - that stripe is wonderful for this design - and the rosette is fabulous. What a great stamp for the front - and that striped twine is the perfect finishing touch.

If this was last minute, I need to be more like you when under pressure! You did such a lovely job on this!!

I hope you guys are doing well and that Dwayne is doing well with his treatments!

Hugs to you dear!!
