Gingersnaps gets Wrapped Up!!

Hi, this week at Gingersnaps we are focussing on Packaging.  There are some great examples from the DT today using all manner of materials.  The DT  packaging piece I chose to use was a Chocolate Box, minus the chocs, because am such a greedy guts I ate the lot...........shock horror I hear you cry..........lol

Products used: Aluminium Tape, Stazon, Acrylic Paint, Inka Gold, Gold Embossing Powder, Lace, Book pages, Tim Holtz Die Cut and various bits and pieces from my stash. Stamps used: Art Journey and Kelly Panacci.

Do so hope you will join in the fun with us at Gingersnaps.  This month we are kindly sponsored by Altered Pages.  Will be catching up with you all later.  Have a wonderful day, take care, Annette x

Chris said...

helloooo lovely lady.... well in my eyes you can be forgiven for eating all the chocs when you can create something that wonderful with the box. I think you should eat a few more boxes so we can see more variations of what you can do with them...lol
