At Joans Garden Week #44

The Challenge this week is simply to decorate a box or a container that can be given as a Christmas Gift.  This is a picture of my box-topper.  It is a Chevron Pattern that is created with Nutcracker Sweet  Collection papers by Graphic 45, available At Joan's Gardens.  The chevrons square is created following a tutorial by Jill Olsen presented in the December 2012 Papers and Pixels Magazine (page 67) that is released on December 15th..  I used spellbinders Lacy Squares Die (available from At Joan's Gardens) and an embossing folder "lattice" by Sizzix for Stampin Up for this topper.  The Merry Christmas sentiment is a SU stamp in Wasabi green ink (also SU). I brushed over the whole thing with 3D glaze.


  1. Very nice! I can imagine all your presents decorated and under a beautifully decorated tree!!!

  2. What a pretty design using the Graphic 45 design paper. This looks like it was a lot work. Thanks for joining us in our challenge at Joan's Gardens again this week.

  3. Graphic 45 is gorgeous paper and it certainly made for a beautiful box. Great job on it!!!

    Thanks for joining us at Joan's Gardens for our weekly challenge.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family! And, a blessed New year in 2013!
