BBTB Tree Box Challenge
This week's challenge over at Bitten By the Bug is to use the tree box from Tags, Bags, Boxes and more. What a fun one! For some reason when I looked at that box I kept seeing Santa so that's what I went with. I cut it at 6 1/2 " in some yummy striped paper from My Mind's Eye and was so excited to finally use the adorable ribbon sent to me by my Cricut mb friend Shelly. (Thanks sooo much! xx) The face is from Doodlecharms (cut at 2 1/2" (I think) and I cuttled the beard with divine swirls, stickled the embossing and used a sugared brad for his nose. I covered the hat cuff in tiny pompoms and added one branch from the MS punch and a little skittle like flower (thanks, Nilda!) topped with an adhesive bead. The glittery pompom on top was from Target. I cut his boots at 1 1/4" from Paper Doll Dress Up and used Swiss dots for texture. The gingerbread border from MS was punched out of DCWV glitterstock and I added a row of adhesive silver beads. The tag is a studio G stamp and ink which I punched and added to an off cut from my stash. Again I used a few adhesive beads and some glitter snowflake stickers from Jolee's boutique to glitz it up a bit.
