Holiday FUN!

It's time for anything but a card and a little bit of Christmas in July. That's right, the challenge this week for All That Scraps is to create anything but a card and the challenge with Flutterby Wednesday is Christmas In July.
So, this is what I came up with. I used a Swiss Pixie stamp and sentiment from All That Scraps and created this adorable Carry All box from Sizzix and decorated it for the Flutterby Christmas challenge. Instead of coloring her dress I paper pieced it for a snowflake pattern.
This was the first time I used this box and I can tell you that it's really cute and perfect for a favor or small gift. Good things come in small packages! After having made this box I know that I will be making more in the future. You will have a chance to join in on both of these fun challenges until next Tuesday... can't wait to see your creations!! Happy hump day!!
