Intrigue Christmas Box

I found a fun tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers that shows how to fold a simple little origami box from cardstock. I used patterned paper from Stampin' Up, which is just a little thinner than cardstock and perfect for folding to make sharp creases.

I tied on some scraps of pretty ribbon, and then made a little ornament as a special decoration. Here's a better look at the ornament:

I took a clear acrylic tag and stamped with Versamark Clear Ink and heat embossed with black powder. The area around the image is painted with a gold paint pen, and the flower is colored with Prismacolor markers.

The stamp is from the Intrigue stamp set that will be released on Tuesday from Clear Artistic Stamps. To see more ways that this stamp has been used, look here.

Wouldn't this be an easy and pretty way to wrap a small gift, or maybe a gift card?

Have a good Sunday all!
