Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hey everyone!!! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!! You know my favorite thing about Thanksgiving second only to the food and family of Thanksgiving???? BLACK FRIDAY SHOPPING and getting ready for Christmas! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas. So here is a little project that I whipped together with my eCraft and some awesome Pink By Design stamps for my step mom for Christmas. She has a thing for boxes lol.

So here it is...


Supplies
eCraft
SVG (Here I used Christmas Gift Bags and Boxes SVG Kit from svgcuts.com)
Pattern paper (I used stampin up paper)
Cardstock (I used Stampin up old olive and real red)
Twine (I used red twine from twistedsugartwine.com)
Gems (I used 4mm gems from Creating A Crafty Life )
Ticket ( I used a ticket from Creating a Crafty Life)
Adhesive (I used 3L adhesive from Amazon)
Ink (I used Stampin up basic black)
Stamp (I used Peace on Earth)
Glitter (I used Stickles red glitter glue)

Instructions
Input your SVG cut file into Make the Cut. Align the box lid and bottom on the same sheet of 12x12 paper. With your pressure on 4 and tabs set at 2 and width set at 3 cut the pattern paper with the eCraft. Using cardstock adjust your pressure to 6 maintaining the tabs and width cut one layer of scallops with green cardstock and two layers of scallops with real red cardstock. Adhere the box base with 3L sticky strips. Next ink up the scallops with basic black ink. Adhere the scallops to the box lid beginning with the bottom scallop and moving your way up. Using 4mm gems adhere to each scallop. Stamp sentiment onto ticket. Now place adhesive and complete the lid. Using Red twine wrap the box lid five times and tie in a knot up toward the top. (Optional: you can add a button or tag onto this knot.) Add red stickles onto the ticket, let dry. Assemble completed box lid and base and voila you are all done.
