Day 2 ~ Handmade Holiday Papercrafting Parade

Welcome to day two of the Handmade Holiday Papercrafting Parade at  
As some of you may recall, I was blessed with a box of supplies from in return for creating projects using the products they sent.  My hope is that you'll find these projects inspiring and that you'll visit by clicking on the links I've included in this post. 

I've made these keepsake ornament boxes in the past and thought I'd make another ornament using Sizzix Trinket Box & Frame die, featuring the Magical Day stamp set that is exclusive to The box is covered using American Crafts Crimson paper. 

I stamped the images from Magical Day on 80# Neenah Solar White card stock and colored them using Copics.  I added a generous coating of glitter using a glitter pen. I stamped some of the fireworks from the Magical Day stamp set onto the background using Altenew Persian Blue and tucked the little scene inside the box using dimensional dots.  To create clouds, I added cotton bolls that I gently pulled out of shape.  I then glittered the whole inside up using Liquid Glue and Stampendous Frantage Shaved Ice.  These sparkling mica flakes are so pretty...  I think it turned out magical!

To finish it off, I added some Prima Flowers and leaves atop Spellbinders Corner Sprigs.  The tag was cut out of Neenah Solar White card stock and I used the "Best Day Ever" sticker from Peppermint Christmas Sticker Book, tied off with a bit of silver thread bakers twine.
