I'm so excited, the holidays are right around the corner!!  The spirit has hit me the last few days!!
For my hop project, I decided to focus on creating a 3D Gift Box for a special gift for my mom!  She's been through a lot these last few weeks!

I purchased two birthstone charms (my kids birth months) for her charm bracelet she recently got, as well as a rhinestone heart charm!  I thought it would be super special to create a special box to present them to her in!

So I started by finding a cute .svg box file I really liked!  I cut it out on my Cameo two times!  This box actually cuts out as one piece!  I wanted to cut one layer up so that I could use two different pieces of pattern paper!

I used a piece of lovely Holly Days Paper  (top) and a piece of Red Sweater Paper (bottom)! 

 I absolutely LOVE how this box turned out!!    

I really like the Poinsettia Tangle stamp set!!  It is an absolutely gorgeous stamp set!  It's been one of my most go to wintery sets this holiday season!
 The Christmas sentiment from the set is so beautiful!!  What a lovely sentiment!  There are an additional three lovely sentiments in the set as well!!

Here is a close-up of my Poinsettia:
Isn't it beautiful?!?!  I love how it turned out!!  I stamped the image two times on Vellum with VersaMark ink and embossed with a lovely Pearl Embossing Powder!!  

I then fussy cut one the around the entire image and the second I fussy cut only a few of the petals, so that I could use a pop-dot between the two and make it look more 3-dimensional!! 

I think my mom will really like this package!!
