Magnolia Altered Box Gift Card Holder

Today I am off from work so I though I would play along in the SCS challenge for Boxing Day to make a thank you card/gift card holder.  This is an altered "Laughing Cow" cheese box. I spray painted the box white and cut out circles to fit the inside of the box as well as the bottom and top. I die cut one large circle from the Spellbinders large circle set to layer on top of the designer paper. Then the large doily in the Parisian Motifs Shapabilities out of silver glitter paper. The next layer is the medium doily from the Floral Doily Motifs Shapabilities.
I distress inked the edges of the white die cuts with Stormy Skies Distress Ink. The flower is from Rose Creations Spellbinders die. The pretty floral is from Michael's Ashland Floral Bush. It was decorated with silver stickles. The branches are a Martha Stewart Punch. The Thank You sentiment is from the dollar bin at Michael's.

Thanks for taking a peek. I hope you had a blessed Christmas and wishing you a Happy, Healthy New Year!

See - you can even make an old cheese box look like it is worth $50! I love every detail and that angel is so sweet! I need to make a trillion thank you cards and boxes - this inspires me just like everything you do. Glad you are feeling better! Can't wait to see what you do for New Years! Hugz!!!!!!

How many of those Laughing Cow cheese boxes have I thrown away? Could have saved them for you to make something gorgeous. Or, maybe I'll save the next one and TRY to make something...hmmm
What a good buy with the $1 sentiment stamp. That is a fun bin, isn't it?

Cheers to you for re-using a Laughing Cow cheese box! They are great little containers. I might just have to go buy some, so I can have one of these too!

Very sweet angel image, and all the light, lovely accents around her. Happy New Year, Bearzi! Hope your breathing is better.
