Hello December Gift Set - Stampin' UP Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome back to the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! We are just mid way thru our December box from Stampin' UP. I am so excited to share fun and seasonal projects to inspire you for last minute Christmas projects as the date draws near! Every Thursday of each week for one full year, all 16 of us from all over the world will post on our blogs an inspiring project for you! Be sure to get Google Translate so that you can read in your language all about how they created their projects too. Now on to my project this week...
it's the most wonderful Hello December Project Life® by Stampin UP® Collection! Well to be honest, I made MANY projects! 
 If you have followed me on last year's Artisan Design Team Hop then you know how much I LOVE Project Life® by Stampin UP® for more than just memory keeping! There is so much you can do with these great collections whether you do memory keeping or make cards or gift boxes or more. This complete collection called Hello December is perfect for documenting a Daily December or just a December recap in general. But I wanted MORE! After making all these projects, I still have PLENTY of the collection to do my December scrapbook. That is a work in process as you read this!
Ok,it is a shame that you get only one of these bohek cards in the Accessory Pack! I used other patterns of 3x4 cards to make my flags. Those sequins are so fancy and sparkle like crazy! I just added the washi tape to a Whisper White envelope. 
 These boxes may be my favorite creations of all time! Both are so different in design. The washi tape from the PL Hello December Accessory Pack is one I think should be sold by the single roll! I LOVE IT! I taped the one box so you could still open the box without ripping the tape. Using several glue dots with the sequins to make a splash of glitter on the top. The other box, uses Paper Doilies to cover the top. I used the Note Tag Punch with a 3x4 card from the collection to make my gift tag. A piece of washi tape holds it down. That Lost Lagoon 3/8" Silky Taffeta Ribbon is so soft to make a perfect bow!
Sometimes when I open a PL collection pack of cards, I immediately want to pull cards that have great quotes and frame them! So this time, I did! I had this perfect holiday quote card pulled to the side. I had the inexpensive black frame with something else in it. I added the washi tape directly to the frame for some pattern to tie in with my theme here. I just added the 4x6 card with dimensionals after I added some flags, as well as a star and sequins from the PL collection. I had these small white pom poms for another home decor project leftover so I strung them on a piece of White Baker's Twine. I have to add that you can get the Hello December Project Life download # 138090 in MDS to make more of these 4x6 cards if you need to make more frames for gifts!
Just fill the boxes with candies and chocolates and it is a perfect 
little gift set for someone special! 
"It is more blessed to give than to receive." Acts 20:35 
It surely IS the most wonderful time of the year!
