We're "gifting" @ Frosted Designs!

Our new challenge @ Frosted Designs is all about gifts - from layouts about special gifts to creative ways to give or wrap gifts.

For my project, I created some Christmas gift boxes that can be used to give gifts and then also used as Christmas decorations.   
I started with a set of three paper mache boxes that I bought at Michaels for about $3.99.  I measured the sides of each box and the sides and top of the lids and then cut paper strips to fit.  The papers were adhered with Ranger Glue and Seal, and then another coat of the Glue and Seal was applied over the top as a sealer.  (You could also use Mod Podge to adhere the papers and seal, or use a spray sealer over the top.)  The tags were cut from one of the papers in the BoBunny Elf Magic collection (you can find it here) and I just added some ribbon and twine bows.  I really love the colors in this BoBunny collection AND the fact that there are two sheets of each double-sided design!
We'd love to see your "gifted" ideas!  Link up to the Frosted Designs blog for a chance to win a prize from our sponsor, Molossi!
