Hi all, today it is raining and blowing not such a nice day for outside work but it means that I can sort out some of my craft stuff, again, lol.
I wanted to share another of my most recent projects for Christmas, I have made a box it is 8" tall and 4" square it is quite large and will hold a pillar candle with ease.
I have used an Elisabeth Bell rubber stamp and she is called
I have chosen a blue and silver theme for this box (I have another one to share with you later) I coloured Candy with Graph It Markers and Copics I added glitter to her candle then distressed the edge of the card with TH ink, I then mounted her onto silver mirror card, I used blue Adorable Scorable for the base of the box then blue mirror card for the top,  I used my SU bauble punch and added blue mirror card baubles on two sides of the box I topped these with punched silver snowflakes, on the opposite side to the image I die cut an aperture and added some of my snowflake acetate, the blue bauble by the image I added a sentiment to along with a handmade paper flower, the top of the box was definitely more involved, I added some lace, then a flower arrangement of blue, white and silver, I then cut four strips of my snow acetate and added double sided die cut silver stars, when you move the box the stars move, they look like they are floating which is the effect I wanted.
I have taken quite a few pictures to try and show the box at different angles and a close up of Candy.

I would like to enter my box into the following challenges:

Lovely blue gift box keepsake, Lorraine! Beautifully colored and shaded little girl, and precious floral arrangement on top! I love that you can use it as a gift box, but then, remove the tissue paper and use it as a candle lantern. Truly beautiful! The mirror cardstock adds a fun, festive element to the double stars. And lots of glittery prettiness, too! hugs, de
