Box of Gratitude

I am torn.  In one way I am in denial that Christmas is 7 weeks away and winter is fast approaching. In another way, I am excited and energized that the holiday season is approaching!  Either way, best not to dwell ;0).

I decided to play along with this week's The Friday Mash-up - FM184 - Put it in a Box!

I really love the For All Things stamp set in the Stampin' Up! 2014 Holiday Catalog.  It is a true favorite and I hope to use the set well after fall!

For All Things Wood-mount Stamp Set

I decided to use the gift box punch board to make a box.  I made a 2.5x2.5x2.5 box in crushed curry cardstock.  It's so easy to use the punch board!  All the directions on the board making it easy to make the box.

I wrapped the box with a piece of designer series paper Color Me Autumn, also in the 2014 Holiday Catalog.  I just love the images on this DSP.  The watercolor effect is great and so versatile!  The rosette behind the greeting is the cajun craze watercolor paper from this pack.

I added a acorn from the autumn wooden elements accessories and wrapped the box with Mossy Meadow Satin Stitched Ribbon.

The boxed is filled with autumn kisses.  A great way to share my gratefulness with those I love!

Have a great day!


  1. Fantastic box, that DSP is perfect for a project like this! Love the little touches like the ribbon and popped up "thanks" banner!
