“Christmas is coming! Don’t forget how beautiful it is to give a gift to someone you love and that this gift is made by ourselves.

We have put in it our love and affection and we have made it thinking about the person to whom it is destined. It can not be more rewarding and enjoyable.

This small box contains all my love and I hope that when this person opens it also the spirit of Christmas will come out of it.

Tips:

Cover the box with your favorite papers from Winter Wonderland Collection and paint edges to give it an aged and cozy appearance. Spray bronze and gold paint, that finish gives you brightness and elegance.

Add cuts from the bottom of the box to the front, leave a little space between them so the feeling of depth will be much greater.” ~Marina

Oh my gosh, I LOVE the Scandinavian/Nordic paper that she used for the cover inside. I am going to have to check out the paper pack, because I MUST have that paper. SO cool.

The 3D display box is really beautiful. I would like to make one similar to it. I like the ribbon that you used as a closure. Your ladies are very creative.

I have never made a box book before--I am a novice crafter--but would like to try it. I like the natural papers you chose. Great job.

Oh my goodness! The way you wrapped the inside to not go down all the way but curved it makes it look deep..I love it. So wonderful. I love how you painted the edges as well. Such a magnificent project. Thank you for sharing.
