December Project For Crafter's Companion

                           Hi Everyone

               Can you believe it's  December? I wanted to make something special to give away in a future contest and I saw this on a site called Amazing Paper Grace, pop over and check it out. They have a great step by step tutorial. Thank you for the great project.

                  This project is for the December Crafter's Companion Challenge. The theme this month is Make It Sparkle. How fun is that?
This month's prize is:  The Humphrey the Elephant Christmas Collection CD and three stamp set of your choice from the the Humphrey the Elephant Christmas collection!!!  This new CD collection contains 2 CDs with over 2,500 elements!

I wanted to thank four companies for creating the
wonderful products I used to make this project.

Crafter's Companion
Specialty Paper's Plus

 I started out with text weight parchment paper from

I used white, blue, and green. This type of paper folds
well, goes through the Big Shot machine with ease,
and inks up well.
You still have time to use the 10% off discount coupon.
Just type it in the coupon area, and you will receive 10 % off
all the parchment paper, and you can still get 50 sheets of the gold parchment card stock free.

This is the top of the flower.

Closer view. I am hopeing you can see all the
STICKLES glitter glue. It made every part of the project

This is a top view of the box, with a peek-a-boo center.

So when you put the flower inside, it is seen without opening the box.
I put a small charm inside, but you could put a gift, maybe earrings, or a pin, or a ring.
It would make a great gift box and you don't need to wrap it.

This is the bottom of the box, and the pedestal base.

To make the box and pedestal I used
It is a must, have. This product made it so easy to score.
Also the Ultimate Tool has the pegs to make the bows
 I used on the box and card.

When I had to glue down the lace pieces to the box,
is what I used. It covers the lace evenly, and it gives you a little time to reposition it if need be.

For the card I wanted a sentiment for any occasion.
I went through all my stamps and the one I liked the most was
Especially For You
From the stamp set

I use this stamp set all the time.
Pop over to Crafter's Companion  and check out all
the wonderful stamp sets.

Crafter's Companion has a wonderful Blog and Facebook page.

Make a project and enter the contest.

I hope you enjoyed the project.

Thank you for stopping by.
And have a scrappy day.
