Boxes! New Challenge at SSiC!

Challenge #160
Make a box or use an image that includes a box.

Scripture
Eph 3:17-19 "...that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height - to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge."

I used 5 of their images on my gift box! They have so many adorable digi images...you really should go check out their website: http://thedigigarden.weebly.com/index.html

I made my box out of 2 sheets of 12x12 cardstock. I scored all the fold and cut lines on my Martha Stewart scoring board. Each side, top and bottom are all 4x4, but I subtracted 1/8" from all the measurements on the bottom part of the box so it fits easily into the top part.

My "Snowmen" box is the right size for a mug...or any small gift!
Below are the 4 sides of the box. I added punched snowflakes, a sticker, Stickles and rhinestones on each side.

"Snowman 5"

"Snowman 3"

"Snowman 1"

"Snowman 2"

Here is the top of the box: "Snowman 4"
and I added a little "sign" with my computer-generated sentiment.

The cute matching die-cut background papers are a digi print from Daydream Designs from the set called "Merry and Bright Christmas"! I just love all those snowflakes!
I love all the seasons...even winter! Mainly because it is SO beautiful! All of that glistening, pure white snow reminds me that Jesus died for me and washed away my sins, making me "whiter than snow"! THAT is the "love of Christ which passes knowledge"! 

Well, thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed the show!
Be sure to stop by the other DT "Sisters'" blogs (listed in the sidebar)...lots of amazing projects!
And I hope you are inspired to join in this fun challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ this week...make a box or use an image that has a box in it!

Sandie! This is so over the top and amazing! You rocked this! You have given me some inspiration! My daughter loves to drink tea and she picked out a new tea cup the other day. I think this would be so sweet to put her cup in for Christmas! The DP from DDD is perfect! I think I'll have to get that!
Blessings!
