Holiday Sparkle Day 3

Welcome to day 3! We are at the half way mark and I am sure you are eagerly counting down to the 15th by now.  I just wanted to thank everyone of you who left me a comment. It's always nice to get happy mail.  As many of you know we just finished celebrating Thanksgiving in Canada so all that turkey and the turkey leftovers have really put my in the festive mood! 

My first project for today is a decorative mini box.  I love these pillow boxes because they are easy to make and they are a perfect place to store small gifts and treats.  You can find many different templates online or go HERE to print yours.

  2. Cut layers and punch scallop edge.
  3. Stamp image.  Apply rhinestones (colour using RV19) and stamp sentiment.

For my second project I created a masculine holiday card since I send out cards to all my husband's coworkers including the single guys (normally I can make the other cards a little more feminine...but can't get away with that for the single guys LOL). This card and colour combo is the perfect touch: simple and not over the top.

Love the pillow box. Do you really put the rhinestones on first then stamp the sentiment?
