Koukussa Kortteihin had a Christmas challenge to create a matching card and some kind of package. I decorated an empty chocolate box and made a tag to go with it. First I was thinking of silver and white but at some point it turned quite blue.

Step one was to cover the whole box with thick office paper. Regular 80g/m^3 was a bit too see-trough so I used 120g/m^3. Next I sponged the whole thing with Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

I had a bit too much fun with the flowers. First I cut acrylic flowers with Sizzix Tattered Florals die. Then I ran them trough Big Shot again with embossing plate and cut the ends of bigger ones petals with X-cut edge punch. Next I rubbed some silver acrylic paint with my finger to the bigger piece and stamped smaller ones with the same paint. I was using Game Color paint in Chainmail Silver.

Again using the same die I cut two layers of vellum and added some dotting on petal tips with silver gel pen. I snipped petals on the acrylic layers a bit deeper before folding them and putting flowers together with Glossy Accent.

I'm a bit dissapointed that I didn't buy more of those metal stars used all over this project. I only got one or two left after using them here as flower centers, snowflakes and pendant. I also need to buy more clear gems.

"H" and "J" pins marking Hyvää Joulua (Merry Christmas) are made following a tutorial I saw a while ago for Tim Holz memo pins. I just can't remember where it was. Anyways, I didn't have memo pins so I just made some myself of metal wire. I stamped letters on white cardstock, embossed them with a mixture of black and silver embossing powder and punched them out. Then I put the pins on the circles and filled them with Glossy Accent.

I printed the picture and text out on Canson Illustration. Picture can be found here. I cropped it a bit and put it trough blue Photoshop filter before printing.

Inside is a pocket for tag. I used Marianne Design die for all swirls in this project. I cut them of silver cardstock and used the same cardstock as a base for tag.

Tag has same kind of flower than the box. I added some white feathers because text speaks about touch of an angel wing. A few ribbons, some baby blue fiber and a Fiskars border stamp finished the tag.

And then something completely different: some Fimo cupcake charms. I thought I'd add these as little surprises to friends Christmas presents.
