Today I am using Spellbinders S4-302 Crown Circles die template and Waltzingmouse Stamps products…



When I initially saw these dies, I thought of a snowflake. Maybe that's not obvious to you, but I guess you can say I have Christmas on my mind! I had recently purchased this adorable clear paint can and wanted to embellish it to hold a gift:


For the lid, I used four different Spellbinders dies. I used one each from the S4-114 Standard Circles Large and S4-116 Standard Circles Small for my base, then one from the S4-302 Crown Circle as the start of my snowflake. I then used one of the snowflakes from the seasonal Create A Flake One set to cut out the center. I used a small paper punch to punch out circles around the entire shape, to make it look more like a lacy snowflake. Here's a closer look:

To further embellish my can, I added a Kraft border that I stamped with the Festive Foliage set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I used the same stamp and a sentiment from the set for my tag. This set is fast becoming a favorite! I added some shimmery Copper ink to the tips of the foliage to add some holiday sparkle:


Now, while I was at it, I thought a card would be nice. I made this one 5.5 x 5.5 inches square, to accommodate this big fluffy bow and my large snowflake focal point. More stamping with the lovely pine cone stamp from Festive Foliage, along with tiny tag using a sentiment from the set. Love this font!


For the card, I decided to emboss the Crown Circle shape. I also opted to not paper punch additional holes, for a slightly different look. It really is a unique shaped die with a lot of possibilities. Just think what you could add to each one of those little circles!



And now that's one more card and gift packaging done and ready for the holidays!

Here's how you can enter to win...

Simply leave a comment on my blog to be eligible to win the Spellbinders Holiday Hoppin’ Prize Package! One winner will be chosen from all the comments on all the blogs participating today. Comments made in the first 48 hours of this post will be eligible to win.
