Before I start cleaning my apartment I want to share a box I made back on April for a Paper Crafts magazine call.  It was rejected but I love it, that's for sure.  To make it I used the Vintage Paper Rosettes SVG Kit from SVG Cuts file.  

I also used the Paper Trey Ink stamp set Tree Trimming Trio with the matching die to cut the tree.  The DP Paper Collection is from Making Memories.  I love the colors and the vintage feeling of these papers!!

For the bow, I used a ribbon from Stampin Up I really love...  My God!  Isn't that a lovely ribbon??  I love how how this bow turned out, just perfect for the box ;)  I also used two pearl trinkets from Maya Road and a wood heart I bought at a local craft store.

You know that I love my projects to be perfectly finished so I cut two stars slightly smaller than the box size, stamped them and cover the inside of the box.  This not only adds a finish touch but gives the box more stability.

Here is the box.

 Thanks for your visit and sweet comments.  Hope you have a great day and I will be back tomorrow with another Christmas project ;)

Off to clean the house yikes!!!

Master Joan... what a lovely box. And don't worry about your project not being selected for a magazine... They have to choose and sometimes they receive so many things... don't say you were "rejected"... I don't like the way it sounds...hehehehehe.. Keep up the good work!
