Countdown to Christmas Project #10
Christmas Lodge Kraft Box

Good morning stampers!

For this week's project we decorated the Kraft Box featured in the Holiday Mini!

P.S. I just realized after visiting my team member's blog that I was supposed to coordinate this project with last week's card, Christmas Lodge. So guess what.....here's the redo.

Here is the "real" project. LOL.  So you have a treat with two boxes today.  Here is the box that now coordinates with last week's project, featuring Christmas Lodge, Northern  Flurry Textured Impressions Folder and the Holly Berry Bouquet Specialty paper!

Or course there is some more scalloped edges and beautiful ribbon to finish off any project!  My tutorial will be now on this project!!!!

Here is the original project post from this morning.....

I didn't use many new supplies, but this week the new product is the Champagne Shimmer Paint.  The picture doesn't do it justice and I actually ran out of my paint supply (LOL) as I use it often!

And here's the close-up...you've seen this beautiful cross (created from the large Serene  Snowflake) many times....but is is very beautiful.

So I painted the box with the Champagne Shimmer Paint, let it dry, and then stamped with Early Espresso Classsic Ink and Whisper White Craft Ink using the snowflakes from Serene Snowflakes stamp set.

I again  used the Scallop Trim Border punch, again a favorite and used throughout my Countdown to Christmas with Sandi & Friends.

Finishe the project with a bow!

I hope you enjoyed this week's project.

I love the look of this box!! I love the shimmer paint too, and this is a great idea for using it. Isn't it amazing how that paint can "glammer up" just about anything. And all the embellishments just make it really Super! Thanks for sharing.

This is so, so elegant - I love your attention to detail. I would never have thought about shimmer paint on the box - very cool! I really like the snowflake cross on the top, and the bling just sets if off so nicely. Thank you for the inspiration!
