JustRite snowy gift packaging for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply Challenge!

A SNOWY challenge! We have been getting a lot of snow lately, here in west Michigan! But no worries where you live, whether it's snowy or dry land, we are throwing around snow in cyberspace for Sharon Johnson's Stamp Simply challenge! Just create and add snow! This package already had snowflakes, and a snowflake tag, but I chose to take it a step further and embellish the tag!

This ready made package is a CD holder and was purchased at Michaels. I went in the store for something totally unrelated to this and decided to use my 40% off coupon, because all the other items in my cart were on sale and not eligible for the coupon. Sooo...it cost .60 plus tax. Talk about a bargain! I am packaging a gift card for my Aunt. It just makes it seem more like a gift! It's all about the packaging, right? I did dress up the tag a bit. After sizing down the green snowflake tag, I adhered it atop the stamped die cut circle. The stamped upper outer border is from JustRite's Holiday Demi Phrases Set. The lower outer border is created with JustRites's Times New Roman font.

Close up of the tag! I added Flower Soft polar white to the snowflake...adds dimension to the tag! The flap is held with the red elastic that came on the box. Copic colored holly leaf and berries, button embellishment with silver cording finish the tag. Just another angle of completed box. Quick, easy, and inexpensive! Just what I need about now! How are you doing on your holiday preparations? In my earnest efforts to be ahead of the game this year, it just is not going to happen! LOL! You may play Sharon's Stamp Simply challenges any time, as many times as you want.
