My Creative Time's 3-D Wednesday


Emma is starting something new at My Creative Time:  3-D Wednesdays!  Each week she and a few members of the design team will be creating something that is NOT a card or layout!  For my project today I created a little snowflake box full of gift tags.


I began by cutting the box from the Cricut Wrap It Up cartridge at 10 1/2".  I used my Gypsy so that I could hide the score marks.  It's easy to tell where to score this one, and I prefer not to have the little notches cut out.


Once it was cut, I was ready to stamp my background.  To keep the two snowflake halves from getting ink on them, I covered them with post-it notes.  I then created my own background by stamping the snowflake from My Creative Time's Anyday Bingo & Crossword.


The next step was to glitter up my snowflake.  I covered each half with my Zig 2 Way Glue, and then covered them with glitter.


I love how the sparkly glitter makes that snowflake pop!


Tucked inside of my box are these tags.  I made all of them with My Creative Time's Scallop & Stitched Circle Die and the All Around Christmas stamp set.


Each of the images was colored with Copics, and I used the same Zig 2 Way plus glitter technique on Mrs. Claus and Santa's outfits.


On the back of each tag I stamped "To" & "From" with stamps from My Creative Time's Gift Card Sentiments.  Be sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what everybody else created for you today!
