12 Days of Krafty Handmade Giving - Day 7

Hello krafty friends! Danielle here for Day 7
of our fantastic 12 Days of Krafty Handmade Giving.
I'm sure you've been enjoying the amazing projects that
have been shown to you already by the talented Krafty Girls.
Are you inspired yet to make your own handmade gift?
I just wish there were more days left before Christmas so 
that I can try the projects my lovely teammates have made!

My handmade gift to share with you today is a gift box that
has a little jar of sugar scrub (home made by my friend Amy).
This is the most amazing stuff ever! She gifted me a jar of it
and I loved it so much I wanted to give some to my friends too!

So...I started with a plain kraft box (from Stampin' Up!) that
I stamped and embossed sayings from "Christmas Cheer Sentiments"
 and  "The Magic of Christmas" in white and silver.

 and then added some stars to emboss in gold
from the "Scrapbook Essentials" set
 and then I went to town adding some color to the box with 
distress ink and sponges.  After inking the panels you will
want to run a tissue or piece of paper towel over the top 
of the embossed parts so that they show through completely. 
As a last step I stamped on the inside panel with
Bridget in the tub from the "Itty Bitty Friends" Set
and inked around her too just a bit.

 Here's what the box looks like after it's closed.
I will probably add a ribbon around it (or put a bow on top)
I put a couple pieces of washi tape on the bottom of 
the box to make more sturdy with the jar in there.  
Fun idea don't you think? 

Thanks so much for being with us today! Stay tuned for Day 8
tomorrow and some handmade krafty goodness from Lisa!!!
