DT Challenge #2: Holiday Thank You

Today the DT was challenged to create a holiday thank you card or project. From the time I was a very small child I remember writing out thank you notes, under the close supervision of my grandmother. At the time I hated it but looking back I can definitely see how that influenced me in a huge way.

I decided to play along and this is what I came up with! Bonus is I get to use some of the cookies I made over the weekend! Isn't he adorable?! He is a die-cut from the Good Cheer line. The hat, scarf, heart, face and holly are all also included so you get some dimension. The holly and green accent on the hat are Stickled with Frosted Lace.

The box was formed from by cutting a clear card box in half. Then I layered some paper from Good Cheer onto a piece of Riding Hood Red cs (SU). Then I made a little oval tag from my oval Nesties and stamped the thank you image from Expressions in Palette L'Amour Red.

The finishing touch was my total favorite faux suede
. I'm usually not a red girl but I'll made an exception for this stuff. I know I've said it before but this stuff is SO luscious and soft. I wrapped a band of it around the whole box and tied a knot for an accent and then used it to make a handle. I used i {stick} papers, our very own redline tape, to adhere the ribbon to the inside of the box. It comes in a 60 YARD roll - that's only 22 cents a yard and obviously it sticks papers and ribbon...and lots of other stuff too!

You can also see in the close up shot I hw I popped up the hat and scarf and heart on dimension dots.

Cute eh? Now...I just need to figure out who to give it to!

Be sure to go and check out the DT blogs and see what they came up with!

Oh this is just the cutest! I need to try one of those half-purses made from the clear boxes. Such a neat idea.

Thanks for the great challenge Kate.
