Two Fun Projects Using Echo Park Reflections Christmas

Hi everyone! I have a lot to share with you today! First, I have a fun Christmas layout posted on the Silhouette blog today so I hope you'll hop over there! This week, we are teaming up with Hero Arts. For my layout, I used some brand new Hero Arts Silhouette tree shapes, along with a few of their matching stamps.

For my next project, we had a really fun challenge over at Frosted Designs. We were asked to create a "gift" project - perfect for the holiday season! It could be a gift-card holder, a box, a bag, gift tags or a layout.

I decided to alter an Altoids tin to create a fun little gift card box with a matching album. I used pretty paper and stickers from the Echo Park, Reflections Christmas collection.

If you have a Silhouette, you can cut all of the pieces by using a fun cutting file by Lori Whitlock called Altered Altoids Tin with Mini Album. The pieces cut perfectly, even around the little metal hinge on the tin box!

The teeny tiny album on the inside is adorable! You can add gift cards or small photos to it. Oh my gosh ... how cute is that?! 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope these inspire some crafting projects this holiday season!
