Elizabeth Bell World Challenge


My last post was the card you are seeing for the Bells'n Whistles Challenge this week and also for the EB World Challenge.  In this submission I've added the gift box for the EBWC. 
The challenge is ANYTHING WINTER
Maybe a gift for someone or a gift bag plus a card.
Be CREATIVE!
You really need to check this out because the DTs have some awesome inspiration to share with you.

I've been wanting to make a medallion for ages so I used the same papers I used on the card cuz I just love that sparkle and these colors.  Not an easy task due to the thickness of the Reminisce DP but I kinda like how it turned out for my first one.  I followed the tutorial from Becca Feeken at Amazing Paper Grace. She works magic with Spellbinder Dies.  Here is the link to the tutorial from January 2009. Ya think I'm a little behind in trying this? ...LOL  Next time I'm going to add more ruffles.

The box is from Michael's covered with Bazzill and Reminisce DP.  I added ribbon around the sides of the box then attached snowflakes (in keeping with the card theme).  I used Grape Ice Stickles for the brad in the center of the medallion and around the 3 edges of the top of the box.

If you want to see the details on the card, please scroll down to the previous post.

Thanks so very much for stopping by and I sure hope to see you again soon. If you have the time to leave me a comment I'll be over to see what's new on  your blog ASAP.
