A Christmas Gift--Creative Inspirations Blog Hop

Welcome to the Creative Inspirations Paints Holiday Blog Hop! If you came from the Creative Inspirations Paints blog, you are in the right place. If you just started on my blog, you might want to start at the beginning of the hop at Creative Inspirations Paints blog. You don't want want to miss out on all the wonderful inspiration!
As you visit each blog, be sure to collect all of the letters from each blog for your chance at winning the blog candy prize. We are giving away 3 CI paints, 3 glitters, and 3 embossing powders to be chosen by the winner. You have until 6:00 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday to comment. The winner will be chosen Sunday evening.
My letter is S.
Your next stop is Carla's blog.
In case there is a glitch along the way, here is a list of all of the stops in the blog hop.
Barbara (you are here)


 My project today is a gift card holder box. The design of the box is from the Technique Junkies new 3D and Fun Folds CD. These pictures show the four sides of the box. Each side I decorated with a die cut which I cut from watercolor paper and painted with Creative Inspirations Paints. The paints are so vibrant and shimmery. They really make a festive looking box.

Here are views of the inside and top.





I am also entering this project in these challenges: Bloggers Challenge -- Tie it up; Tuesday Throwdown --For someone special (It'll be a Christmas present for my dd); and Three Muses -- 'Tis the Season.
