My project for this blog hop is a gift box that I made with the gorgeous "An Eerie Tale" collection. I used the Staples Book Box for my basis and decorated it with the papers, chipboard pieces and banners from this wonderful collection. I used Scrapbook Adhesives tape and adhesives to stick everything together.

I also used tape, foam dots and glue dots from Scrapbook Adhesives. I really love their adhesives as they are strong, easy to use and high quality.
I also did a step by step tutorial on how to make this gift box.
First paint the gift box with gesso to give it a whitewashed look.
Trim the “Grand Illusion“ paper at 4.5” x 11” and decorate the box with it by attaching it to the bottom, the backside and the upside of the book box. Cut a strip of the backside of this paper to decorate the sides of the book box.
Trim the “You Bewitch Me” paper at approximately 3.5” x 9” and attach it on top of the orange paper.
Cut out a small rectangle from the “Wicked Whimsey” paper and adhere it onto the upside of the book box. Then cut out two roses from the “Captivating Characters” paper and a tag from the “Fanciful Fable” paper and decorate the upside of the book box with the cut out elements. Attach these elements with foamtape for a dimensional look.
Further decorate the upside and the sides of the book box with more fussy cut elements, a die-cut, a chipboard embellishment and two resin cherubs.
I hope you enjoyed my project.
