Bah! Humbug! Use a CD / DVD

This Bah! Humbug! challenge certainly got me thinking. I couldn't bring myself to alter a CD so eventually settled on making a gift box to hold a DVD.

This will really come in useful and I might well make a few more since DVDs make such good Christmas presents.

Here is my DVD gift box.

I made the box from blue lustre card and added a paper made by Craft Creations Ltd shaded with chipped sapphire distress ink.

My much loved poinsettia die by Marianne Creatables gets another outing, this time in blue and silver.

I added a small tag which, although you can't tell, is inked and stamped with a 'Merry Christmas' sentiment.

The red gems give a bit of contrast and hopefully add to the Christmas feel.

Well, that was another tough challenge ladies, I hope its a nice easy one next week.

  1. That's a beautiful presentation box Gina! And isn't the poinsettia die so useful - I love your different colour scheme which works so well. I've very much enjoyed looking all through your blog and will be coming back for more :)

  2. This is just fabulous Gina - loved the stitched lines and the poinsetta done in blue is just wow. A great DVD box - how lucky is the person who gets this going to be.

  5. Oooooooh Gina - what a luxurious looking gift box and I really like that you have chosen to create your poinsettia using blue and silver rather than more traditional red. It's stunning! Thank you for sharing with us at Bah! Humbug!
