CCC#016: 'Tis the Season

CCC#016: December 2013 Challenge
'Tis the Season

For this month's challenge from Catherine and Cathy Create, anything goes - as long as it's Christmas! :) I wanted to share a super simple gift packaging option. I am obsessed with the Tag a Box bundle! I mean, how cute are these little kraft boxes?! They measure 6-7/8" x 2-1/8" x 2-1/2" and come with a plastic sleeve that slides over the box. Adorable and effortless - perfect for the holidays! You can get the boxes separately (8 of them for $6.95!), or you can get the bundle with the boxes and the Accessories Kit and save. The accessories kit includes a ton of tags that are perfect for layering, plus baker's twine, dimensionals, and adorable mini clothespins. I used the bundle on this project.

You could leave the box as-is and let your cute gift show through the clear sleeve - some homemade cookies maybe? :) Or you can create a little cardstock topper like I did here. I used Cherry Cobbler cardstock and stamped the snowflakes in Cherry Cobbler ink. The cardstock is cut to 6-7/8" x 4-3/8" and it's scored at 1" and 3-3/8" on the short side. Just place it over the box and slide the clear sleeve over the whole thing. SO easy!

I created a belly band with the Season of Style DPS stack, then used one of the tags from the accessories kit. I tied Cherry Cobbler baker's twine around the box, and clipped the tag on with one of the mini clothespins. Ca-ute! :)

Please visit Catherine and Cathy Create to see what the other design team members have made. You will love their Christmas inspiration! And if you play along with the challenge, and link up your project, you might win some Stampin' Up! goodies!

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stampin'! :)
