Happy Mail Embellishment Box

Who doesn't love happy mail? Whether you love creating them, 
getting them or both, these little Embellishment Boxes make the sweetest 
gifts...especially when they're filled with Doodlebug Designs' goodness!


I started with this clear, plastic storage box that I found at The Dollar Tree; 
it measures approximately 7.5" X 1.75" X 6.5" and has a hinged lid.  




To begin I traced the top and bottom sections of the lid onto 12X12 paper
 and then cut out.  I used a double-sided adhesive sheet to completely
 cover the backside of the trimmed paper and then attached to the lid.  
As you can see, there is a small domed portion in the center, which is left uncovered.  
I love how the embellishments show through! 

Next I sorted through the various die-cuts from the Simply Spring Collection 
and decorated the front as shown.  

Keep in mind the pattern direction of the paper as you'll be able to see 
it once the box is opened :)

Onto the really fun part: filling the compartments with goodies!  
Make layered tags, bows, clips and samplers of washi tapes, stickers and die-cuts.  
For a filler I used crinkle paper that was tucked into sections as needed.





Here are a few ideas to make all-ready-made items unique: 
  • Use embroidery floss cards to wrap samplers of washi tape and twine around
  • Combine 2-3 small containers of glitter by wrapping them with baker's twine and then embellish further with a cute mini tag
  • Add ribbon or twine to the all ready adorable Jelly Clips
  • Cut apart Cute Clips and dress up the top with a strip of folded-over patterned paper
  • Attach small stickers to Mini Clothes Pins

And if you love stamping and die-cutting you'll surely want to color-up some
 of these cute mini layered tags!  Here I've used alcohol markers to color in the
 images and then embellished further with a glitter brush pen and 
enamel dots for the cheeks!

I hope that you've enjoyed taking a peek at this project and will whip 
one up for your favorite crafty friends!

Welcome and Happy New Year!
Once again I am very excited to be participating in the "SEASONS GIVINGS BLOG HOP" Each blog that you visit along the way will offer a unique giveaway, so don't miss a single stop and invite your friends to hop along too!
♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
