Baby It's Cold Outside...

...Or at least it should be!

Hi All! Welcome to the Kraft-y Hearts blog share featuring Close To My Heart's October Stamp Of The Month: Christmas Tunes.

This cute little stamp set will have you humming your favorite Christmas tunes while you work on those Christmas cards and gifties for the holidays. 

Today's project focuses on those "gifties"--in this case, two of the gifts for my kids' teachers. Let's take a look:

This little faceted box is all over YouTube right now, and is made with the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. (But be warned, it's not for the crafty faint of heart.) I created my boxes from Kraft paper and then layered them with papers from the Beary Christmas paper packet from Close To My Heart. The tops of the boxes are also layered with Cranberry and Glacier cardstocks. 

I decorated the tops using two of the stamps from the set. I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black ink on White Daisy cardstock and colored them with my alcohol ink markers (both Copic and ShinHan). I then fussy cut them and added them to the box tops with foam tape. Finally, I added mini magnets to the inside for closures.

Here's a closer look at the box:

And here's a look at one of them opened:

Finally, here's a close up look at each of the tops:

Since it's October, I DID refrain from actually playing Christmas tunes while making these, but it wasn't easy! Remember, the Christmas Tunes stamp set is only available through the month of October. Now hop on over to From My Bungalow and see what the AMAZING Lynn Darda has for your inspiration!

Here's to a wonderfully creative week!
