High Hopes Challenge # 44

Hello everyone;
It's time again for another High Hopes Challenge. We have a great challenge for you today, "Wrap it Up" and it is brought to you by Inge.

I decided to try my hand at an Origami box.

I have used the new release Thanksgiving images......Pilgrim Pair, Sm. Turkey, Oak leaf corner and border and the Happy Thanksgiving and Gobble Gobble sentiments.

I embossed the images with black and painted them with Tombows. I stamped the oak leaf corner onto the top of the box with Perfect medium. The sentiment was stamped and embossed onto acetate. I cut out and layered the images onto the labels that were die cut with my nesties and embossed with a CB folder. I also added some stickles.

On the inside of the box I used the smaller nesties labels and embossed with the same CB folder. I cut out all the images and layered them with foam tape. I added some stickles and coloured the back of the dew drops with a black identa pen.
The box is filled with some delicious chocolate truffles!!

I hope you like it and be sure to stop by the High Hopes blog to see the gorgeous creations the other Diva's have come up with to inspire you. I hope you will have time to play along with us this week.

Thanks so much for stopping by.....

Have a great Sunday

This is so awesome Karen, as all your creations are. I love how there's a play on words with the "gobble gobble" on the inside right in front of a stash of candy! Amazing, as always!

Oh Karen...this is beautiful. Don't you just love all the fall colors? I've tried to comment on your recent posts and my pc hasn't been co-operating. I'm still here everyday. Thank you "my friend" for encouraging me from the beginning.

These little pilgrims are adorable! You box is too! I need to make a few of these since I've got those origami boxes down pat. How did you attach the bottom and lid? Your pictures don't show the back. Thanks for sharing! Best, Curt
