Gift box - TMS #281

Happy Tuesday to you!!  While it's almost time for Christmas, it really is time for Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

This week we don't have a sketch for you.  :-O  Are you shocked?  I am!  LOL 
This week is our Annual "Anything Goes" Challenge.  That means you can create anything you want to share with us!!  Also, this challenge will last for 2 weeks.  That's right, you'll have until Sunday, Jan 4, to create something wonderful to share with us!

I've made a gift box.  I'm going to put a picture of my  husband's present in it.  [Why a pic?  Because the actual item is not yet available.  :/ ]  

This was really fun to make!  The instructions can be found in THIS POST at Crescent Stampin'.   I left off the handle, but made the box using the instructions there.  My base is Cutmates CS.  I used Neenah Desert Storm CS, Paper Studio Kraft Christmas DP.  The image is FTHS December Stamp of the Month image... Christmas Spirit Birdbrain.  So cute!  
I wrapped the box with burlap, cut the image with Spellbinders, added a  Sweet n Sassy die cut snowflake, and a brad.
I loved last week's sketch so much that I used it as inspiration for my decorated panel...

On the lid, I added an EK Success punched snowflake, a large brad, and the sentiment.

Our very own Melissa is sponsoring this week with a gift card or shopping voucher.  To where is a surprise, but I guarantee that it will be something you'll love!!

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas!!  It's my prayer that you know the Christ of CHRISTmas as you own personal Lord and Saviour!!
