Happy New Year and the Belli Challenge



This weeks Belli Challenge is all about Glitter and Rhinestones, MY FAV! But I bet you knew that! LOL! I decided to do something a little different and share this cute little card box that I found over at my friend Jennifer's blog. This was the Project of the Month over at The Cat's Pajama's.

Once you get going they are really easy to make and what a great gift they make. I modified Jenn's original project a little and have the instructions listed below on how I made mine.

For the nuggets...I used Avery Labels (48860) and stamped them with Basic Grey and Pacific Point ink using the Snow Swirled stamp set. Once the labels were stamped I wrapped them around the Hersey nugget. Each plastic box will hold 6 nuggets. I adhered the 6 nuggets to a 3x3 piece of basic gray card stock and inserted into the plastic box. I got the plastic boxes from The Cats Pajamas.

For the inside of the box (or card piece)..I used wrapping paper for my DP and it was cut at 5 3/4 x 2 3/4. I then added a white piece of card stock cut at 5 3/4 x 2 3/4 and used a scalloped punch along the top and bottom edge. I stamped the left side with the snow flakes in pacific point and basic gray and added my sentiment to the right side. I taped both pieces of card stock together and folded in the the center. I taped down one side to box and then taped the other side and place the other box on top of the tape. Now you have your card on the inside.

For the outside of the box...I cut the card stock at 3 1/2 x 12 and then used the same scalloped punch along each edge. I cut the DP (wrapping paper) at 2 1/4 x 12 and adhered it to punched piece. Now you can take your boxes and wrap them with the paper making sure that the tops are even. I scored mine using my fingers to give it a bit of a folded edge. I punched out a 1 3/8 size circle and folder in half on the top to hold the two pieces together. Punched 2 holes through that and inserted my ribbon. Now you have your cover for you box card.

For the front of the box... I used die cut snowflakes that I ordered from Creative Cuts and More. I painted them with white acrylic paint and then once dry painted on some mod-podge and sprinkled with glitter. Oh my they came out so nice! Very Sparkly! I used a crystal glitter but you could use any color. I attached a button with some ribbon to the center and then used glue dots to attach to the front of my outside covering.










I hope that you enjoyed these. You can check out the original instructions HERE. A lot of fun to make and these are definitely a keeper for me. So many different things to do with these cute little boxes for gifts.

So head on over to the Belli Challenge Blog for more great projects!
