Fancy Favor Gift Packaging

 Good morning!  So how are your Christmas preparations coming along?  I'm happy to say that mine are almost done!  Cards have been sent, baking done, most of the shopping is complete (apart from a few little things that Marcel and I are taking care of today).  Now just doing the final touches like wrapping and other pretty packages.  This packaging will be for one of Eathan's teachers, I picked up some handmade soap samplers from a craft fair and these will fit beautifully in this pretty little box.
 It's actually two fancy favour boxes put together - brilliant isn't it!  I can't take credit for this.  As demonstrators we have access to so many ideas and so much inspiration!  I am so thankful for that.  I don't think I could do what I do without the ideas that SU! and so many other demonstrators provide.  Don't get me wrong, I love to create my own projects but I have to admit that probably 95% of what I make is inspired by a project that I've seen or photo from a magazine.  But the great thing about that is that you can use those ideas as starting points and then make it your own or add your own take to it. 

Anyway back to the project - SU! created a video for this project sometime ago and I basically cased the idea from them.  I switched up the accent a bit but apart from that it is pretty much the same.
Here's a close up of the focal point - I love this pine cone image from the Bells & Boughs stamp set.  It's so beautiful and the champagne glass glitter around the circle just adds to it!

Thanks for stopping by!
