It's A Wrap Stampotique Designers Challenge SDC76

The challenge this week on the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog has Been set by Jo. This is what she has to say about her challenge.
" it's at this time of year when I always think 'Oh it's ages until December 25th, no panic' and before I know it I am sitting surrounded by wrapping paper, ribbon and tags on the 24th promising myself I shall plan ahead next year and be more organised. So here I am planning ahead with this week's challenge theme of making unique wrapping, tags and gift packaging using stamps. Whether it's a simple single image stamped onto a plain sheet of paper finished off with jazzy trimming, and intricate tag, a wonderful box or even stamping your own ribbon, give it a try and see what a difference it makes transforming (very cheaply) the smallest most basic gifts into little works of art."
For my challenge piece I have used a basic little box from Stampin' up and stamped onto it. I stamped a Christmas greeting onto my ribbon. The little box topper is made from shrink plastic and a Tim Holtz die cut Rosette. I have added a brooch pin to the back so it can be taken off and worn as a fun Christmas brooch if you want.

I used the following stamps.

Text Star
Jingle bells
Daniels Tree Topper

You can now use any stamps for the Challenges, but only one entry per person for each challenge. Two lucky people will be drawn from all the challenges for November who will win a $30 voucher to spend on Stampotique rubber. So make sure you go over to the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog to enter.

Stampotique Rubber Stamps are available to buy from Stampotique originals, and in the UK you can buy them from Happy Daze.

I brought my stampin up box from here  I really like these little boxes, they are good value and come in packs of 4.

Thank you for Visiting, Carol x
