This months Prize is from the lovely Judy over at Pizzazz Aplenty.
Prize: $10.00 Surprise pack of goodies from Pizzazz Aplenty.

For my creation this month I have decided to make a small gift box.  I found the template for this Closed Square Box here.  I used Stampin Up Peach Parfait to print the template onto and then cut out the shape.  Next I added a layer of this wonderful patterned paper on each panel. (Sorry don't know the name).  Next a layer of Bazzill Two Scoops in alternating orange and red.  This Bazzill cardstock has an embossed design on so that you can use you sand paper to reveal a lighter colour underneath.  Magic!
I stitched around the edge of each panel.
Next I adhered a skeleton leaf and either maroon flatback pearls or orange flatback rhinestones.  All from our wonderful sponsor Pizzazz Aplenty.
I finished the lid off with a little Thank-you tag.  The sentiment is a rub-on.

Now it is your turn.  I can't wait to see your wonderful creations over at
