That's a Wrap! Challenge #341 and final challenge of 2022

 Hello Ai fans!

Welcome back.  We hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are busy getting ready for the holidays.

Speaking of the holidays, we have a challenge that might help you with your gift giving.

That's a Wrap!

This challenge has two meanings.  First, we're "wrapping up" our challenges for 2022.  Next,  of course,  we're wrapping up gifts for our friends and family.  We want to see your handmade gift bags, gift boxes, gift card holders, handmade wrapping paper,  tags, cards with presents on them etc.

Reneé is our featured artist this week  and has made an elegant gift box.


Hello everyone and welcome to December!

Today I'm sharing a gift box that I made using a BUNCH of dies from the 5543 – Journal Template Die Set.  I also used the Seasons Greetings from the 5566 – Christmas Sentiments.

I used gold paper for a lot of the pieces because I wanted this to be over the top opulent!
The sentiment was stamped on a die from 5132 – Tag Stitched Dies.  The snowflakes are from 5353 – Large Snowflake Dies and 4804 – Snowflake Dies.

I also used a greenery die from the brand new 5591 – Journal Rectangle Frames Die Set.

This is the inside of the box before I added the cover.  I used some of the circle dies from the journal set to highlight the 25th.

The sentiment on the inside was stamped on 5134 – Banner Double Stitched Dies.

Now for the really fun part!  I made a gift to go inside the box using more of the dies!

I recently started making paper earrings and I thought
this gift box would be perfect for some of them.

These earrings were made with Ai dies!
I never dreamed my dies would be so versatile!
The little heart is from 5317 – MB Template Dies.

The original plan was just to make the box and so some of the dies
used to make my earrings aren't in the photo.

I hope this inspires you to look at some of your supplies in a new way.

Seasons Greetings everyone!!

So much inspiration here.
