I found this cereal that I love at Target a few months back.
I've gone through about 10 boxes since then and I haven't had the heart to throw any of them out. They're made from a pretty sturdy cardboard and have a little plastic lid, so I thought I could repurpose it for something. Then I thought, it would make a great gift box for Christmas/Birthday gifts. I pulled out some supplies and turned the box into this lovely:
I wrapped the box in a piece of patterned paper. The 12x12 piece wasn't quite big enough, but I used the ribbon and scrap to fill in the last piece. I stamped SOG's Tree Trimming Kaylee on some copic quality paper and color in her hair and skin. I paper pieced the ornament she's holding and her clothes and accessories. I added a little jingle bell to her headband. I popped the front panel up on dimensionals over the ribbon.
To finish it all off, I stamped three of the gift images from Warm Wishes Tia in a stack and paper pieced each of them to creat a little to/from tag.
I'm loving how it turned out and can't wait to work on the others I've been hoarding :-D
And since I used my SOG stamps, I'm throwing it in for the Get Odd Guest Challenge Wish me luck!
