These boxes are really easy to put together and can be used for so many things! I think this one is a perfect base for my Christmas Tree. Here are some other views:
The lid is hinged and pops right open so you can stash the gift:
But wait, there's more! I'm doubling up this project with the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge #17 – Woodlands & Tinsel Twine. This Cookie Box was just begging to have a Woodlands decorated tree put on it. (Truly a match made in heaven!) Linda over at Studio L3 has been hosting these fun challenges based on the techniques found in Tim Holtz's book (this one is on page 60). Go check it out for some serious inspiration. Also, many thanks to Inspiration Emporium for sponsoring the prize on this challenge. You could win $50 to spend at the store!
This also fits the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge#7 Tic Tac Toe. I covered many of the categories with this one… Star, Patterned paper, Ribbon (tinsel twine) – Die, Stamps, Ribbon – Star, Glitter, Die. This is a fun challenge, be sure to check it out.
So here you have it, three great challenges you can participate in! Most of the supplies I used for this project can be found at Inspiration Emporium.
