Waltzingmouse Stamps November SOAP Day 2

Today is the second day of the Waltzingmouse Stamps November Stamp of Approval Parade (SOAP). Over four days the Design Team will be sharing projects made with any and all of the WMS Christmas stamps!

Today I am sharing a gift box I made from a plain metal tin.


I painted the tin with white paint before layering on some My Mind's Eye paper, transparency swirls and a sentiment from Seasonal Remedies that I had stamed with Brushed Cordoroy. I distressed the papers, and my flowers, with Antique Linen. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Craftts and they have also been inked as well as stickled for added sparkle.


The gift box holds some small chocolates but can also be used to hold notelets or small cards.



Be sure to peek in to see what the rest of the DT have created for your viewing pleasure...
