Altered Christmas Gift Box #DCWV

I saved this chocolate box from last year, it was too pretty to toss out in the recycle bin.  So a little TLC was called for.  I used DCWV Christmas Plaid 12"  x 12" Stack available at your local Joann's.

The box has beautiful green foil along the edge, so I didn't cover the edges.  I also used Scor Tape, Glue Dots, Fiskars paper trimmer, hot glue, ruler, ribbon and enamel dots.
I measured the area that I wanted to cover and chose several different pattern paper.  I really love the cut out sheet "Let heaven and nature sing" so I used 2 of the cardinal prints to go with the theme.

I partially covered the bottom of the box with green plaid, the silver foil was too pretty cover up.  I just needed enough to cover the chocolate logo.
I also embellished with red enamel dots.

I added a red wire ribbon to the top of the box to make a wreath and adhered it with hot glue.

I hope you enjoyed my altered Christmas gift box.  Now to fill it with yummy craft items.

Thank you for visiting today.
