Day 6 - Altered Gift Boxes

Thanks for joining us for Day 6 of our home-made gift ideas! Of course it's important to have the right packaging to present your gift in, and what better than something beautiful made by you? Julie from The Scrappy Tree Design Team altered these Christmas gift boxes with this idea in mind, and of course these would make lovely keepsakes for those special memories this Christmas.

"These were old American Eagle gift card boxes from a few years ago. I thought they would be fun to dress up to put necklaces or bracelets in this year!"
Happy Holidays box: Paper - My Minds Eye, Prima flowers, Melissa Frances rub on, Marvy punch, Hero Arts metallic gemstones. Charm from Simon Says Stamp.

Smiley snow girl box: Stamp - Hero Arts, Marvy punches, K and Co. patterned paper.

Thanks Julie for sharing these cute gift boxes! Join us again tomorrow for another great home-made gift idea. Remember, this Christmas - don't worry, be scrappy!
