Christmas Stampin's 3-D Challenge

Happy Friday everyone. The joke at our house each Friday as the week comes to an end is that we are another week closer to retirement...Scary thought.. right?  But we don't laugh about it anymore like we did years ago.

Friday is challenge time at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, (CSAYL) but the first Friday of each month is when the design team concentrates on little paper goodies that make the most adorable packages for holiday gift-giving. Our design team, Maria, is a super whiz creating special boxes, and she did another fantastic job with this template, that I'm sharing with you.

This little keepsake box is perfect for candies, chocolates, jewelry, gift tags, etc.

To coordinate with the poinsettia designer paper, I colored the poinsettia and leaf images with Copics and used embossing powder before cutting them out to embellish the top flap. This cute little box is very versatile, and, of course, the template could be used for any occasion.

Here's the directions to Maria's Keepsake Box. Hope you will join us in our challenge this week. This was a fun and very easy project to put together. I hope you will give it a go.

Thanks so much for stopping by, friends.. I'm wishing you a terrific day and a fantastic weekend.

LOL! I just celebrated my birthday yesterday and it was really low key because I told my husband, rather than celebrating. . .I'm counting down!

Your gift set turned out beautiful, Peggy. I love what you did with the poinsettia! What a wonderful idea. I love how you arranged them. Very pretty! Great job with your gift set!
