Wanda the Penguin

I love making little gift boxes and bags for presents for any occasion, but with Christmas its an excuse to do more of them 🙂

So to pop a little Christmas present in this box, will make the gift even extra special.

To make the gift even more special, Wanda the Penguin is the star of the show!!! I have coloured her in with my alcohol markers and added some glossy accents to make her shine even more.

For the milk carton style box, I have used white card and matted it with snowflake papers from the Winnie White Christmas Collection.

I have then added some tags onto the top, with a little wooden peg and some twine. These are perfect to add a little message on 🙂

Hope you like it.

Eli the Elephant

This weeks Polkadoodles challenge was all themed around animals so I decided to use the ever so sweet Eli the Elephant. I chose the pre-coloured version, I love that this is an option.

This time I have made a 5×7″ Kraft card blank, and cut it down to a smaller panel at the front. I have then added the lovely check papers which are definitely a favourite of mine.

I wanted to make a little scene for Eli to go in, so I have used some the autumn stamps, which I have printed and fussy cut and attached them to a thin strip of acetate.

Finally I have added some gems and a sentiment.

Hope you like it.
