Believe in the Magic of the Season Gift Box

Today's project assignment was to find a fun Christmas gift box and transform in from fun to Simply Fabulous. We found the fun box at Big Lots - it comes in three sizes. It has a great magnet latch and was just screaming for a JustRite Makeover.

To design your stamp use the believe designer center and the circles border from the Harmony Classic Oval Stamper II (JB-08180) set. Use Versamagic Red Magic and Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy to double load the image. Using the Spellbinders Ovals & scalloped ovals die cut the stamped image along with a green scalloped mat and a red scalloped mat. Chalk the edges of the white cardstock with red chalk. Add Lime Green stickles to the border circle centers and add Kaiser green rhinestones. Adhere layers using pop dots between the layers.

Next, load the Harmony Classic Oval Stamper II (JB-08180) using the Curlz Font Ensemble 50 pt (JB-08070) to spell “IN THE MAGIC”
stamp onto white cardstock using Versamagic Red Magic ink. Using the Versamagic Red Magic ink, apply a red edge to the white cardstock. Die cut using the Spellbinders Oval circle Nestabilities. Die cut a scalloped green mat and layer using a pop dot in between layers. To finish it off, I added Lime Green Stickles around the edges of the white cardstock and added some Kaiser green rhinestones.
Now change the verbiage on the oval stamper to read "of the Season"
repeat all the steps to make a second tag embellishment for the right hand side of the box.
Now fill the box with Christmas peppermint patties. Our box holds 3 bags.
To dress up a few of the Peppermint Patties die cut white and red cardstock using Spellbinder's Petite Scallop Nestabilites. Then fill the cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder with the diecuts and dry emboss. Assemble diecuts and decorate a few of the peppermint patties on the top layer of the box.

JustRite Stampers:
JB-08180 Harmony Classic Oval Stamper II, JB-08070 Curlz Font Ensemble
Dies: Spellbinders Ovals & Scalloped Ovals Nestabilities
Accessories: Kaiser rhinestones, pop dots, Lime Green Stickles, Versamagic Red Magic, Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy
Keep us in mind....."When it needs to be JustRite".
