ABC Christmas Challenge - P is for...

I'm back with another ABC Christmas Challenge today...this time Samantha is our host, and she has chosen a fabulous theme of:

'P is for Presents, Packaging & Photo Inspiration'
Phew...what a mouthful! Basically, we'd like you to create either a present and/or some kind of packaging (gift bag, box, tag etc) inspired by this photo collage:

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky entrant a $15 voucher to spend in their store:



Stamp Fairy are offering one lucky entrant 3 digis (of their choice) from their store.

Ok, so on to my projects...I went a bit over the top this there are a lot of photos!
First of all, here's a photo of everything together:

Here's a close-up of the little box:

And the present inside:

Yes, it's another of those wrap bracelets...this time in a multicolour assortment of gemstones:

The gift tag:

And finally, I couldn't resist making a matching card:

Products used:
Hero Arts stamps set - 'Graphic Lines Trees'
Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder
Sentiment - 'Bubble Tree' set by Woodware
Luggage label - WHSmith
Bazzill 'Kraft' card
Papermania 'Recycled' card blank

I'm also entering these items into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, as well as some of the Stamp Fairy girls, please visit the ABC Christmas Challenge.
