And what I'd like you to create is, as the name suggests, a christmassy themed box with the added extra of it being distressed....i.e. tattered 'n' torn. Over at split coast stampers, I saw THIS TUTORIAL but there are plenty of others on that site or you tube, or if you already have designs of your own just go with that, as long as it's a box to hold some christmassy treats that's fine.
I've gone with my favourite colour scheme of cream, brown and gold and followed the tutorial over at SCS to make one of the boxes, the other I used my new Sizzix Bigz die Box#3. The scrummy papers are MME "Signature Christmas" oh they really are lushious, shame the photo doesn't show the lovely glittery bits or the delish Ferrero Rocher that's inside the box, mind you I've eaten them all now.....lol!!!! The images and sentiments are Stampin Up "Old Fashioned Christmas"
And if you enter my Stampin for the Weekend challenge, you could just win this lil lot.
