May Arts & G45 Blog Hop - Multipurpose Holiday Window Gift Box


Hi All,  I have a very festive project I would like to share with you today. May Arts and Graphic 45 have come together for a week of blog hop. Lots of inspiring projects and prizes to win!  Be sure to leave comments both on the May Arts and Graphic 45 blogs for your chance to win some great stuff!!!

Graphic 45


I had a blast making this Multipurpose Holiday Window Box. My inspiration is a combination of my Window Gift Box and Chocolate Tower Box from my 12 Days of Christmas Crafts E-Book



The G45 Christmas Emporium line is perfect for this project. The patterns are very unique and it helps your creativity and imagination to work. Look at the floor, the inside and outside panel, and the cupcake wrapper.  It almost looks like a real thing. And of course, May Arts ribbons adorn this Holiday Gift Box to have a finished and more presentable look. I used May Arts leaves ribbon as an accent to my front door and I also made a Ribbon Wreath to decorate the inside part of the box. It's true that,  to create beautiful projects,  you must have beautiful supplies and materials like G45 papers + May Arts Ribbons.


When you are gifting, they always say..it is all about the packaging! This ordinary cupcake looks extra-ordinary and anyone who receives such gift will feel extra special. 

All sides of Multipurpose Window Gift Box


Supplies:

Double Faced Satin ( Ribbon Wreath)
Sizzix Bigz XL Die - Christmas Tree 3D
CutFile - I modified Penny Duncan Cutfile



So, after eating the Cupcake, this Christmas Gift Box can also be used as a Christmas decoration. That's why I call this project a Multipurpose Holiday Window Gift Box


Look at my floor, does that not look like a real tile? That's from G45 Christmas Emporium Paper Pack. Also my 3D Christmas Tree, it does not need so much decoration because the G45 Christmas pattern paper is enough. Love it!


Oh, let's not forget the G45 Metal Hinges I used for my side panel to allow some movements. Love it too!
