Here's the latest from OMC designer Lindsey - The Merry Christmas Covered Box!


Echo Park:
Wintertime Paper Pack
Making Memories: Noel Poinsettia Music Notes
Prima: Holiday Celebration - Poinsettia

Sizzix Embossing Folder: Phrase, Merry Christmas w/Frame (Small)
       (Sizzix Textured Impressions Embossing Folders 5PK : CHRISTMAS SET #4 by Rachael Bright)
Jenni Bowlin: Dye Ink Pad - Spiced Tin, Brown Sugar
Doodlebug: Sugar Coating Glitter

Bazzill Basics: Vanilla Cardstock
Box (any small box will work)
Spray Adhesive 
Glue Gun


1. Cover the box with Echo Park paper by measuring all sides and cutting the paper accordingly. Glue the paper to the box. Ink all sides of the box using the Jenni Bowlin Dye Ink Pads.

2. Cut four 1"x12" strips of striped paper. Wrap them around the box and glue down.

3. Ink the Music Note Poinsettia with brown ink, and layer the Prima Poinsettia flower on top. Glue both flowers to the box, a little off-center, on top of the strips of striped paper.

4. Cut a 3 ½" x 3 ½" rectangle cardstock. Ink the embossing card on both sides with the Spiced Tin ink and emboss the cardstock rectangle. Over the "Merry Christmas" phrase and dotted edge, lightly rub brown ink over the raised areas. Cut the oval "Merry Christmas" phrase out and mount it on red Echo Park paper. Cut out the phrase and then mount under the Poinsettias.


5. Spray lightly with spray adhesive and sprinkle the Doodlebug glitter over the entire box.

If you have any other questions about this adorable little covered box, you can email Lindsey directly at - Put "Christmas Box" as your subject line.

Happy wrapping!

The only thing I would add is that if you put a magnet on the back, it is perfect on the fridge.
