National Scrapbooking Month- Happy Times Blog Hop

Welcome to our National Scrapbooking Month Blog Hop!  We will be featuring May's exclusive Paper Packet, which is Happy Times, a set of  12 patterned papers.  

If you have come here from Marie's Blog, you are on the right path! The blog hop is a great big circle, so you can start here and work your way all around.  If you get lost along the way, you’ll find the complete list of participating consultants on Melinda’s Blog.

 This month we have 31 Close To My Heart Consultants sharing their creations using this month's SOTM and other great CTMH products on their blogs. This is simple to do - just click on the link at the end of the post on each blog to move to the next one! Here we go!

This Paper Packet is beautiful, and I knew it would be perfect to recreate the talented Melissa's Box that I have been meaning to assemble for ages!

This box is made using only paper from the Happy Times Paper Packet except for the small area of White Daisy Cardstock for the stamped sentiment. The tag is tied on using the Fern Thick twine attached to the bottom of the flower.

I made the box 11.5" high and then resized the tag to fit. I cut the flowers at 3, 2.3 and 2 from the Pomegranate ombre paper sheet and joined them together with one of the Gold Bling Gems.

The gold detail on the floral paper is stunning- the photo doesn't do it justice!

This box could fit some chocolates, sweets, a candle, perfume- anything long and tall would work wonderfully and save the conundrum of wrapping! Who doesn't love a sweet handmade gift box for their present?

Now "Hop" on over to Michele's Blog to see her work! Be sure to visit all the Consultants at their Blogs to get some great crafting ideas and other fun ideas! Remember, the NSM Paper Packet is only available until 31st May!  Contact your CTMH Consultant (or click here) to see how you can get this paper packet for FREE!
