BRRRR! Baby, it’s cold outside! ‘Hope everyone is staying warm & snuggly inside, because it is bitter out there!

Here's a lovely little box that was originally intended to be a candy box, but then I thought, how cute would this be as a post-it note holder for my desk? I used the Stampin’ Up Top Note Die – one of my personal favorites, for the top and bottom pieces, then attached them to a box. I wanted to put a ribbon around the outside of the box, but realized I had no ribbon to match. So, I got creative: I cut a strip of pink cardstock, and ran it through my paper crimper – presto! The perfect “ribbon” to wrap around the outside of my box. I had a bunch of scrap paper, which I recycled by cutting down to the size of a post-it note… then I went over the top & stamped a few of the top sheets (he-he! I just had to complete the look!)

Creative Ingredients:
Paper: Stampin’ Up! Regal Rose, Black Cardstock.
Ink: VersaMark, White Gel Pen, Sakura Jelly Roll Pen – Clear Star.
Stamps: Angel Company – Decorative Corners, Curls and Swirls.
Tools: Stampin Up! Top Note Die, Spellbinders Shapabilities Charms and Rod, Paper Crimper.
Kaiser Craft Rhinestones - Diamond, Kaiser Craft Pearls – Snow, Black Embossing Powder, Ribbon, Acrylic Pebbles, Pop Dots.

I’m working on a couple of things to complete this ensemble, so please come back to check it out! Bundle up and stay warm!
