JAI 130 Just add Blue and Bling

Hello there :)

oooh lucky me has the day off work today to go and potter around at the Craft Fair which is in town this weekend :) Not only do I get to spend the day with a friend but spend it doing, talking, chatting, and buying ;) crafty stuff - yah!!  Hopefully you'll get the chance to have some crafty time this weekend too and you might want to try the fun challenge we have for you at Just Add Ink this week. This week we want you to add blue and bling! Here's what I came up.

Yes - back to Christmas again this week ;) But then I've just finished off my first Christmas stamp a stack for the year so Christmas is in the air here! The blue is fairly obvious ;) and for the bling - well I silver embossed dollies (snowflakes) all over the box. I also went super blingy for the tag. I got my hands on silver glimmer paper at Convention and I just couldn't resist using it here. More silver embossing and finally the bling was wrapped up with a rhinestone. The little box (2, 4, 6, 8 box) is quick and simple to make. You can find the tutorial that I used here.  The only change I made was to make a sturdy (but decorative) handle from cardstock. To finish it, all I had to do then was fill a cellophane bag with some yummy choccies and tie it up with some matching ribbon.

Hope you can join us this week! Thanks for visiting,
