Christmas Greetings ~Glitz Design~

Hallo dear friends,
 As you can see I`m totally
into Christmas mood and I can`t wait to spend
the Holidays with my family at home.
For me this is the cosiest and the most
beautiful time of the year. And as every year I
hand made my Christmas home decoration
and my seasonal cards.
I`m here today to share with you a few of my
Christmas projects I created to celebrate
together with all of you!

My first project is a gift box in a shape of a star.
I altered the box using mostly the gorgeous
"Joyeux Noel" collection.

{Joyeux Noel} 6 x 6 Paper Pad
{Joyeux Noel} Journaling Stickers
{Joyeux Noel} Layered Stickers
{Hello Friend} Paper Garland
{Hello Friend} Washi Tape - Coral Polka
{Yours Truly} Crepe Trim

This is how the "back" of the box looks like.
The journaling scallop sticker was cut in two and used on top of the box.
The "Merry Christmas" phrase is from the Layered Stickers.
I used a circle punch to punch only the text and then I placed it
on top of the scallop sticker. 
Between the two scallops I used crepe trim.
I used for both boxes chipboard from....
{IDFL 0006} Music Symbols with Holly Flourish

The flowers come from...
Manor House Creations

My second project is an altered square
gift box which is perfect for a little
precious jewel - for example a Pandora charm ;-)
After altering the box with pattern paper I painted
the edges and used a few embellishments to decorate it.
"DEAR SANTA..." Gift Box
{Joyeux Noel} 6 x 6 Paper Pad
{Joyeux Noel} 12 x 12 Motif Paper
{Joyeux Noel} Title Stickers

This is how the "back" of the box looks like.
I loved adding the Title sticker "little treasures"!
I combined the chipboard with decorative strip die from....
{657706} Sizzix Decorative Strip Curly #2

My third project is a card.
I used Sizzix dies for the shape.
The frame was stamped with white embossing powder.
