Speedy the Cat at Mark's Finest Papers likes to get a head start on special Christmas gifts and memories for friends and family. He gathered the design team at Mark's Finest Papers to bring you 12 days of exciting paper crafting gift ideas to get that holiday mojo flowing. The hop runs for 12 consecutive days, starting October 17th! Begin your holiday hop at Speedy's home base, the Mark's Finest Papers blog and relax with a cup of eggnog (or sprig of catnip, your choice) as Speedy leads you though a short, daily hop. You'll find your holiday paper crafting ideas and supplies at Mark's Finest Papers.
Welcome to the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! We have four samples each day for our hop! Please visit each of the following blogs for holiday inspiration! Start off tomorrow on the MFP Blog for more inspiration!
Day 11 Decorated Gift Box Oct 27
Welcome to day 11 of the 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop. Today we are showing you gift boxes. My gift box was made using the Mark's Finest Papers Country Thanksgiving image.
This is the inside which shows the box I created to house six tea lights that match the box. The sunflowers are from Mark's Finest Papers and are a part of the Country Thanksgiving set.
I stamped the sunflower on tissue paper and colored it then make a little hole in the center for the wick and placed them on top of the tea light. To seal you just use your heat gun to melt them into the wax a little bit. I sprinkled some glitter on top of mine as well. I did test these out in a votive holder. I didn't have a problem to it got to the very end and then the paper caught on fire...lol Just a word of caution should you decided to make these.
Thanks for stopping by today. We have one more day for the 12 Days of Christmas Blog hop. This is my last project for the hop. I hope you have enjoyed what I had to share with you.
