Labels to Love, The Crafty Carrot Co Blog Hop

Labels to Love, Customer Rewards Program, Video Tutorial, Gift Box, Stampin' Up!, The Crafty Carrot Collective, Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper, Flourishing Thinlets, Papercraft by Jennifer Frost

Welcome to this month's Crafty Carrot Co blog hop where we tease you with pretty projects featuring the Labels To Love stamp set, our product focus for the October interactive rewards program.

Today I'm sharing this lidded box.  It's one of my favourite gift packaging choices!  It's so quick and easy to put together!  But don't take my word for it, see for yourself in this video tutorial right *HERE*.


The box lid is made from the gorgeous Year of Cheer foil specialty paper. This paper needs no embellishing - it is just stunning all of its own.  To allow the pattern to really shine, I kept my gift tag very simple and clean with tones of black, white and silver.  With the exception of the touch of blushing bride in the leaves - this soft pink and copper is a very trendy combination!

EXCITING NEWS!!
