For the Love  
of  Gift Giving Hop!
 
Welcome to Our Daily Bread Design's Alumni Team's bi-monthly For the Love Blog Hop.  This week the Alumni team along with some of the ODBD designers are featuring a hop For the Love of Gift Giving! Check out each link and leave a comment. If you get lost along the way, check the ODBD blog for full list of links.  One of the post is a hop hot spot and a name will be drawn from that list of comments to win a $15 ODBD store gift certificate.  So, all you have to do is hop along and see all the creations and leave a little love!  You have until Wednesday, December, 5th at 6 pm.   Enjoy all the beautiful designs featuring For the Love of Gift Giving!

If you got here from the wonderfully talented Tosh's blog, you are in the right place. 
 

I made a gift box  full of ODBD stamps. I thought this was a great way to give the gift of ODBD stamps for Christmas.  For this package, I am using ODBD Worship the Lord stamp set. 




I designed the base of the box which measures 4 inches high and 5 inches wide.   I ink distressed all visible edges.  I covered the backs and sides with designer papers.  I cut out a half circle in front.   For the flap, I used a 5 inch wide piece of card stock. I scored this panel at the 5 inch and 6 inch mark.  I cut off 1.5 inches in the front and used the Spellbinder's Grand Circle Scallops to create a scallop lid and a scalloped back.  The back was attached and the top was fold over and around the top.  I added a piece of designer paper to the top portion of the front.  I finished with a piece of ribbon with layered die cut sentiment, and gold pearls.  This gift package can house up to 4 ODBD stamp sets!  Got to love that!
  

 
As always thanks so much for stopping by!  Enjoy the hop!  Next up is the fabulously talented Connie's blog.
