My Craft Spot Challenge #122 Wrap it Up!!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone! 
Happy Monday! Today we have a FUN challenge going on at My Craft Spot and would love for you to come join us! We always enjoy seeing your creations! 
The challenge this week is:
Wrap it Up!! 
Doesn't that sound like fun? We are all in the middle of the craziness trying to get ready for Christmas~decorating, crafting, baking, shopping and wrapping, ha? So, show us your crafty wrapping idea's and come link up for a chance at a great prize :) 
Can't wait to see what you create! 
Here is my DT project:
I started out with an adorable paper mache star box that I picked up at Hobby Lobby. I grabbed some beautiful papers from MME-Lost & Found Christmas collection. I traced and cut pieces to match up to the box and inked the edges with TH walnut stain. I adhered it down with Mod Podge and then gave it several thin coats for a nice finish.
I hot glued Vintage Twine on the outer part of the star and then decorated the top. The tag the Ornate Labels Metal Die and the sentiment is stamped with the Ornate Labels ~Christmas Stamp set and Joy Filled Christmas Stamp set in Memento  Rich Cocoa.
I tied a double bow with Vanilla Bean crinkle ribbon, tied a double bow with Brown Jute String, a fun star buttons and finished with a couple gold bells. 
I am planning on filling this box with my yummy homemade caramels to give to Arya's daycare Teacher for all her hard work and amazing care she gives her throughout the year.
Be sure to stop over at My Craft Spot and check out what my DT sisters have created for you and then come back and join in this weeks challenge :)
