Reverse Confetti Creative Hop!


Hello! It's the 8th of the month, and that means it's time for a Reverse Confetti hop! 


This month the team are showing you all kinds of Christmas packaging - fun right? Hop along, there are prizes to be won! Leave a comment here and on all the blogs by Wednesday night for a chance to win, we'll announce the winner on the Reverse Confetti blog on Friday.

You should have arrived here from the lovely Laurie Schmidlin, you can find the full hop list on the Reverse Confetti blog.

Remember this tag?


I made this for a Wednesday in the Works post on the Reverse Confetti blog last month (you can see a video HERE) and liked the burlap base so much that I wanted to try a gift box in the same style. I had so much fun playing that I even made a matching card!


Creating the box couldn't be more simple. 



Adhere burlap to some cardstock using lots of liquid adhesive - I like Tombow Mono Multi. Die cut two of the Treat Tote Confetti Cuts - I find if I run the die through my big shot forwards and again backwards I get a clean cut. Adhere together with a strong adhesive like red line tape. Cut the base of the box from cardstock and use to cover the seams on the base of the box. 


I love using the same elements on different pieces for a cohesive look. For this set I've used the Seasonal Sentiments and Roundabout stamp sets with the Tag Me, Tag Me Too, Let it Snow, Circle Garland and Circles 'n Scallops Confetti Cuts. I stamped some hot pink tissue paper with the same sentiment as the tag for even more matchy-matchy goodness!


Thank you so much for stopping by today - don't forget to leave a comment then head over to visit with the wonderful Susan Liles
