PTI Blog Hop

Today is the PTI blog hop and these are the rules to follow:

One of the most fun things about this hobby is the people you meet, whether in person or online, and the things you learn from them.  Now is your chance to show off any skills you might have learned from a fellow stamper, and perhaps even give them a little shout out to thank them for the inspiration they have provided.  Create a project using one of your favorite learned skills and perhaps after a little blog hopping, we will ALL learn some new tips and tricks and continue to pass on the love of this hobby!

Well after reading this I knew had to make something inspired by Betsy Veldman.I love her style, bold colors with a twist of vintage.I have always admired the color palette that she normally uses but have never attempted it,until today. Last week she had a link to an adorable little gift box that I knew I wanted to attempt as soon as I saw it. So here is my take on this little gift box,why not give it a try yourself,it was VERY easy to create.

This is the top of my little 4x4 box

The side of my box


This little metal JOY started out blue and I embossed it white embossing powder, added some glitter while it was still hot then sprayed it with glimmer mist.
This little box was fun to make and I'm sure I'll be making more as the holidays grow closer.They will be perfect for a special little gift or filled with delicious chocolates such as Ferrero Rochers.YUM!


Thanks for stopping by today and have fun hopping!!
