PaperCrafter's Corner Blog Challenge and Giveaway!!

    I was inspired by the magazine cover below! Such an adorable picture of the hustle and bustle of a busy shopping mall!! See all those packages the man is carrying? Well, that's what gave me the idea to make decorative packages for this week's challenge.
   The first package above is made with die cutting and inking the white poinsettias with Cranberry ink from Clearsnap. Tied with twice, once with red ribbon, and then twine. This makes it easy to get into the package by sliding the twine upward.
  The second is made from DCWV Candy Cane Lane (obviously) which has gorgeous glitter papers which I used to "Upcycle" a cheese box. This took the longest since I didn't have washi tape for the sides I took time to precisely cut and matchup the diagonal stripe paper cut to size. Using satin ribbon tied in a bow and an adorable striped button atop.
    The third is a die cut gift card holder with another die cut snowflake from glitter paper and decorative bling centered. Now I have 3 gorgeous packages ready for Christmas!!
Also, Paper Crafter's Corner is having the infamous 12 Days of Christmas for all of us Paper Crafters out there. Make sure to play along!!! Good luck! And Merry Christmas! 
Also, 12 days of Christmas here: Starting Dec.6th-Dec.17th!! Good luck everyone!


  1. You did such a great job! I love upcycling. Your efforts to cover the sides of the cheese box paid off beautifully. But I love 'em all!
    Bev, almost every night I see you have added my name to some contest. Thank you so much! About all I have had time to do is check Instagram at night, occasionally a few minutes on FB, but there's a message that you have mentioned me. So sweet! Merry Christmas!
