~* sPaRkLY hOlIdAy KeEpSaKe gIfT BoXeS *~

As many of you know, most of my scrapbooking studio is currently packed away in a storage unit while our house is on the market. And I'm going CRAZY being unable to create anything these past couple of months!
I wanted to make Paris Hilton's Holiday Keepsake Gift Box idea featured in the teen section at this month. I loved the idea of using a layout on the gift box, I had never seen that before!
So I ran and bought another paper trimmer, a glue stick, some glue dots, and a few decoupage boxes. Those basic items and a few pieces from the Paris Hilton line was all I needed to create the gift boxes shown.
I created the layout for the keepsake gift box above using the My New BFF theme kit and the Flowers and Lights paper pad from the Paris Hilton Creativity Collection. I covered this box with purple paper, and adhered my layout on top. Very simple, yet it looks so elegant.
Then I was in the crafting mood (after being deprived for so long!) so I created the box below using the Flowers and Lights paper pad again (I LOVE that paper pad!) I made some layered flowers from the paper pad for the top and glittered them with tons of Stickles. I glued some trims around the top edge and my gift box was done. So much more personal that gift wrap! Who wouldn't love getting a package like this?

This is such a fun project! Moms and daughters, create these gift boxes together and have fun being creative!
All of the instructions to create these pretty gift boxes are given
on, so check it out!

Dearest Deb! Thank you for your kind long sentences needed; just your visit and kindness are enough! Your comments do mean a lot to me! I so enjoy writing and improving it; I think my favorite part of writing is revising my rough drafts. I just love that!!!! Thanks again dearest, Anita
