BLOGGERS CHALLENGE #70 - GIFT GIVING





This week's Challenge was to make something you would give as a gift. Immediately, I thought of this cube with COASTERS. I had an idea to have a candle in the center of it...but when it came down to it, I didn't have any pillar candles that weren't half gone already. You see...I am a burner. I burn my candles, especially in the fall and winter months!











I completed this coaster box, then had the REAL CHALLENGE of searching for a candle. I ended up taking a candle and wrapping it up to make it look "pretty." My next thing will be to buy a candle, so I can GIVE this as a gift! LOL

I used the following things for this challenge...

Stamp Sets: Holiday Greetings, Christmas Pointsettias, Jesus Is Born from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps
Cardstock: Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze, Whisper White,
Ski Slope DP, Grosgrain Ribbons,
Accessories: Christmas Buttons, BLING, Fire Brads, Primas, Copics, GLUE DOTS, Liquid Pearls Red, Nestibilities...
