The last of the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition challenges is to design a Gift Box or Bag with matching tag! I knew immediately that I wanted to make one of the hexagon boxes from the Milk Carton Die, using a Santa Suit motif! I haven't seen one done like this! When making it for this challenge, I had the "brainstorm" to use it for my Clubs this month, too! I think it turned out CUTE…and my Clubs like it!
Putting the two Milk Carton die containers together isn't hard…the most difficult part is learning how to fold the top. Once you make one, the rest would go very quickly. I love how the 1/8" Basic Black taffeta is tied thru the top. I used the Crop a Dile to punch the holes. Although you can't appreciate it in the photo, the Silver Glimmer Paper looks great on the belt buckle and with the Postage Punch behind the stamped Tags Til Chrismtas greeting (punched with the 1" Square Punch)! I also used the Dotted Ribbon Punch with Whisper White for the fur trim on the front. CUTE, cute, cute!!!
