JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream!

Happy Wednesday, everyone! This week is JustRite Week at Stamper's Dream, and the Dream Team has been posting some amazing projects! Here is the schedule for the week, so you don't miss a thing!

My project today features an image from the Vintage Christmas 3 1/4" Borders & Centers Set. I covered a wooden tote box with BasicGrey Wassail paper, then I sanded the edges and inked them with Tea Dye Distress Ink. I cut out the image with one of the Labels Nine Nestabilities and sponged around the image with Antique Linen Distress Ink while it was still in the die.  Coloring was done with Prismacolor Pencils. I applied Stickles to the stars, and I embellished with a red button tied with natural burlap string.

I went with the Nutcracker theme and filled the box with nuts in a cello bag! The tag was stamped with a sentiment from Christmas Nested Framesand I tied the tag to the cello bag with red burlap string.

I'll have another JustRite Christmas project for you tomorrow! Thanks so much for visiting today!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Would you believe I have a wooden tote box sitting on my shelf in my craft closet exactly like this? I bought it, but haven't done anything with it yet. I really like what you have done. What a cute idea to fill it with nuts when you have a nutcracker image on the outside! Adorable! great Xmas gift!

So fun and festive, Christina! I love the box, and it's so nice to give something besides candy at Christmas. The nutcracker is perfect for it!
