Silver and Gold Blog Hop

Welcome to the Australasian CTMH Silver and Gold Blog Hop, if you arrived here from Megan's blog I am very happy to see you. If you arrived here by chance you can continue the hop by clicking on the link at the end of this post to see other great ideas.


The Silver and Gold Scrapbooking kit G1138 has some Christmas theme papers and embellishments but it can also be used for other projects as well, because there are black and white papers and compliments as well. The silver and gold glitter compliments are so pretty.
I decided to make a box, a bag and a gift card holder ready for Christmas.  All of the projects were easy to make.

This first box only takes a relatively small piece of cardstock, (4" x 11") you can view a video here for instructions on how to make this box. The finished size is 4"x 2"x1" and the pattern paper on the top is 3.75" x 1.75". This may appear a very small box but it will easily hold chocolates or a special gift.  I coloured the holly berries with a Shin Han Marker and added a white ribbon.



This second project is gift bag and you can find instructions here to make the bag, you will need a piece of paper 9" x 12" and a few strips of cardstock. I have added a diecut deer and a little metal heart from my stash to decorate the bag. The deer was stamped with Versamark Ink Z891 and heat embossed with White embossing powder Z2068



My last project is a quick and easy to make gift card holder. You can find a video here with instructions. I have added the nativity stamp from the First Noel C1688 stamp set to continue the Christmas theme but of course you can add any stamp you choose, to embellish the belly band.



Thank you for stopping by, I hope my projects inspire you to create your own. To continue the hop click here to see what amazing creations Maz has to share. Please take a moment and leave a comment, it is always appreciated.
