All Wrapped up Blog Hop

I'm so excited to be participating in this months Angel Company Blog hop, this month the theme is "All Wrapped Up" I'm making all my gifts this year. Times are tough and I'm actually having a ball making all my presents. Every year I try to make a different ornament and give it to my kids, neices and nephew. This year I decided to recycle some boxes into ornament boxes, and I will put this years ornament inside it, then they can put all their own ornaments in their boxes and store them for next year.



How I made the boxes
I sprayed the tops with krylon paint, used my klick-n-kut to cut out vinyl to write their names on the top of the boxes, and used the stamps sets Holiday Boys and Holiday Girls to decorate the outside edges. (Shown is Holiday Boys)
Hope you enjoyed my project, I have some TAC stamps that I'm giving away, all you have to do is post a comment, and/or become a follower and post another comment, that you became a follower. Be sure and leave your e-mail so I know how to contact you if you win.

I'll draw for the stamps on Tuesday 12/15. Your next stop is Angela.

Really do like your idea of recycling boxes & tin can containers. Could kick myself right now for tossing out a bunch of nice cans this past week. Also like the personal touch given on the can. Thanks for sharing this wonderful idea!

I think making gifts, rather than buying, them is a wonderful tradition that many of us would benefit from adopting. Your boxes are beautiful!Unfortunately, not all of us are as talented as you, but that's okay; it leaves lots of room for improvement!

Love the "recycled" boxes - talk about being green. The boxes turned out great and the coloring was super.
