~Christmas in a Box~

A Boxed christmas header

Anyone who has been in my studio knows that I have a little bit of everything and a whole bunch of somethings.  Egg cartons, pill bottles, recycled packaging… just a lot of desirable finds.

You probably know that I’m down to just a few days for the baby shower I’m hosting for my newest daughter in love, Kalika.  This is my first baby shower, but I’ve done parties and helped with a wedding or two.  I love love love party planning.  I’m a detail girl.

So one of the items I purchased for the shower came in a 4.25″ square acrylic box.  I loved it so much, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for today’s post.

Now Sharon carries the clear boxes in several sizes in the store @ The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store.  You could use this same concept with any of those.

What I did was built my card INSIDE the box and decorated the outside.  It presents as a fun little shadowbox card.

Here it is with the insides pulled out.

Even after I finished this, I thought of a couple ways to improve on the design, so I may be back with another version!
