To celebrate Thanksgiving, Glitz Design is having a blog hop! Both the traditional and digital teams are sharing projects with the Finnley collection.
With the holidays right around the corner, I made a gift box and tag with a present inside. First up is the box and tag:
I started by printing the gradient charcoal grey paper from the Finnley Paper Pack. Using a scoring board, I folded the paper to create a box lid and bottom that is A2 card-size.
For the tag, I resized and printed one of the layering papers in the Finnley Element Pack #2. I die-cut the tag and tag topper, and I printed and fussy cut the floral grouping. I cropped the letters from the Element Pack #1 to create the sentiment.
Here's a close-up:
I made the pom pom using my new pom pom maker. My daughter and I had fun making several of them for decorating presents. :)
So what's inside? I made two notepads for my mother-in-law:
The pretty flowers come from a journaling card in the Element Pack #1, and I paired them with my own sentiment. I layered four different papers as backgrounds.
I trimmed and then gummed the top edge of the papers. Here's a close-up of the inside:
I'll be sharing a step-by-step photo tutorial next week (there are a lot of photos--I thought too many for a blog hop), so if you're interested, please check back later next week.
As part of the hop, Glitz is giving away the Finnley collection--one paper and one digital to two lucky winners! The winner will be chosen randomly from the entire hop, so to increase your chances, you can comment on the other blogs. Be sure to only comment once, though. :)
Here's the line-up for the hop:
