Pretty little Poinsettia

Okay, some of you may be saying it's a little early for Christmas -- we haven't even had Halloween yet!  Well I have been doing Christmas projects for over 2 months now -- mainly because of my teaching schedule at the store and on the road with Craft-Dee BowZ.  But I was in Texas this past weekend with The Collins Group and we did this sweet little project with Susan's Garden and I thought I'd share it with you.

It got mangled in my suitcase on the way home, but I was able to spruce it back up.  Isn't this the cutest?  The box is made from a  Sizzix die (unknown) and the poinsettia, of course, is from Susan's Garden.  Just love her stuff.  I used to make a lot of her creations when she was affilliated with The Punch Bunch.  But using dies is soooo much easier as you can get several different sizes and store it in a smaller space (than punches).  We also used a combination of Elizabeth Designs wide tape and her wonderful glitter.  This was the last class I took at the trade show and it was the MOST relaxing class I have ever been in!  Just thought I'd share.

Ciao for now!

Ciao Bella!

What a gorgeous little box! Are you saying that the poinsettia is made from a die? It's beautiful Dee Dee!

Indeed it is, Shona! That's what I love about Susan's Garden dies. You get all the different sizes of leaves in one die set. We also did a Dahlia which is on the Craft-Dee BowZ blog under October's Challenge. Check it out!

Your box is lovely DD, but I especially like the beautiful poinsettia - a gorgeous die with so many layers! Wow! Of course, I like the way you finished it, too :-)
