Time to wrap some presents!
Well, I wish that I could say that I had all of my Christmas shopping done and I was really ready to start wrapping - but that would be far from the truth! I haven't even bought the first present and really don't have any ideas on what I want to get people! But, for those of you who are more prepared than I am - your challenge at Karen's Doodles this week is to make a gift box.
I made my box using my Cricut and the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge. I combined several of Karen's images using Photoshop Elements 9 before printing them out on Cryogen white paper. You will recognize Santa Waving, but I also used the soon to be released Stone Fireplace, 2 stockings and the Candle centerpiece all from the Christmas Stockings set. It is so much fun being able to create a scene. The paper is Basic Grey's new Christmas line - Jovial. I added Polar White Flower Soft to all of the fur trim on Santa's coat and the stocking.
There are some really fun tutorials to make boxes, so now is a great time to try something new. Check all of the DT's fabulous inspiration to see what they came up with!
