City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 190 ~ Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way....

Can you hear them? Christmas is on its way and this week, sweet Charlene brought Jingle Bells to City Crafter Challenge Blog

The challenge is to use BELL/S on your project. I always get my DT work done way ahead, it was around Thanksgiving and I need to wrap this gift so I just go along with the bells theme when I do the gift wrapping.



I used my dies to cut out the leaves, add glitters on one of them and the other one is from packing material, I just used ink pad to add some color to it



add ribbons, twine and bell



that's it, easy and yet make pretty and sweet gift wrap, agree?



Please hop over to City Crafter Challenge Blog and play along with us.

This is the last week we are having Lisette as our Special Guest Star, you gotta to check out her lovely project over at CCCB, plus we have a new designer this week, be sure to check her work too, of course, the awesome projects by the CCCB designers, so hop over right now!

OMGosh, I LOVE it! What a sweet package! Loving the pink gingham paper and the big brown bow. And the leaves, twine, and bell are the perfect touch. Awesome upcycling of that old packaging material. Love the glitter mixed with the inked corrugation. This is just soooo beautifully shabby chic and fabulous! I wouldn't want to open this one!

Tracy said...

Love the use of that packing material for some great texture. The bell is just icing on the cake. Beautiful! Hugs!
