{Christmas Box} Scrapping Our Stash Blog Hop

Hello everyone!  You might have arrived from Sandy's blog.  I hope your holiday has been wonderful so far.  If you give gift cards, it can be hard to figure out how to package them.  I often worry an envelope will get lost.  Plus they just aren't as fun to open, are they?  But then you have to wrap.  Well, I have a solution for the best of both worlds.  I kept a chocolate box from a few years ago because I knew I could find something fun to do with it.

And I dug into my Christmas collection stash of BasicGrey's Juniper Berry.  It's so beautiful (gosh I miss their papers!).  I came up with the following:




I just love the colors in the collection.  Simply gorgeous!  Here's a better view of the top of the lid:



And here's a view of the box from the side:

Thanks so much for hopping along!  Next up, hop over to Lyne's blog to view her lovely Tiny Toes layout!  See you soon.
