Today we are wrappin' it up with a 
non-traditional Christmas colored twist for the

How do you like this octagon gift box and tag ?

The Bugaboo digi must be retired.

The pink and black design paper scraps, neither one a full sheet, came from my stash.  I used markers to color the digi to match the candy cane paper.  The die cuts on the box are by Spellbinders and La la Land.  A friend just sent me the octagon buttons as a gift.  Another friend sent me the candy cane charm.  
My blog friends are the best!!!!

  11. This is so adorable!! I Love the shape of that box and what a great way to make a little gift just that much more special. The colors are really fun, too; very unexpected for a Christmas creation. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.
