What's in the box??

Our new challenge at High Hopes this week is to make
A Gift Card Holder 
or Gift Box
If you've been over to their blog recently you'll see that Aaemie had a fab tutorial last week on how to make a treat box, and it's easy peasy (trust me, if I can make one, anyone can LOL!)
My box is slightly bigger, and I didn't have a piece of card big enough to make a flip lid like Aaemie's, so I just made a regular box.

My box uses Christmas Treat from High Hopes - coloured with copics and some fluffy stuff added as fur.  Marianne Design snowflake and poinsettia dies, Memory Box border.

And inside my box ....?

A set of cards as a pressie for my doggy-lovin friend.
BTW, the card at the top is another High Hopes stamp - Heidi and Mattie

Other challenges:
Layout inspired by Dawny's sketch at Simon Says Stamp
The Pink Elephant TPE176 - pretty packaging
Christmas Stampin' all Year Long CSAYL#37 - To Die for
Polka doodles #47 - any die will do
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challlenge #100 - for someone special
Lexi's Creations #79 - Christmas
