It’s the 2nd day of the Waltzingmouse Stamps September release and I am now back on schedule. Today the design team is showcasing Nordic Winter. I call it the “sweater set.” This is my mostest favoritist set of the release. In trying to describe how much I love it, I say this: If I were stranded on a deserted island for a year and could only have one stamp set, this would be it. I haven’t even begun to touch the tip of the possibility iceberg with this set.
I like to make items that can be reused because then I feel spending a little extra time on them is worth it. For today, I chose to make a trio of gift boxes because I thought they would best highlight this awesome set. I used two different tutorials for the bows, which you can find here and here. I don’t ever think I want to buy a bag of smooshed holiday bows again. The ornament tag is a sneak peak of one of the sets we will be highlighting tomorrow.
And since pictures are worth a thousand words, here is a pictorial on how I got (or tried to get) my borders to line up on all four sides of the box (if it’s not, please let me know).
