DT Team Project 1 by Astrid featuring MME

Well, these last few days have certainly been busy here with my fellow DT team members showing some amazing cards and projects featuring the wonderful My Mind's Eye Ktaft Funday Collection, Stamps and Embellishments. The Kraft paper is so strong that I decided to make a gift box out of it for my first project.

I used my Crafter's Companion Ultimate Pro to make my box but there are hundreds of tutorials all over the internet on how to make such simple boxes.
1 of the 12 x 12 papers ("In Print" KFD 106) from the collection made the basic box and lid, it measures 4 x 6".
I then chose one of the other papers (Ziggity Paper KFD 112), cut it to 5 3/4 by 3 3/4",distressed the edges and inked them with Vintage Photo distress ink. I swiped some gesso over the middle section I then added some more pattern and texture back to the paper by using two of the stamps from the "Happy Days Stamps (KFD 143)in Archival Coffee. I then glued some dark red ribbon from my stash along the bottom.

Next I used one of my Spellbinder dies to cut the snow flake shape out of the same paper, inked the edges with vintage photo distress ink and glued it onto the ribbon. Using one of the stamps from the "Everyday Fun Stamps"(KFD 139) I stamped in Dovecraft Perimium white ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I punched a circle around it and glued it to the center of the snowflake.
Finally I embellished with some roses from my stash, a bradfrom the embellishment set KFD 117 and some buttons from the KFD 113 set.
The little tag was punched from the Ziggety paper, and stamped with other stamps from the sets.

All of these very versatile papers, stamps and embellishments are of course available from Snazzy's and as you can see can easily be adapted for Christmas projects
