Homemade Gift Box with DCWV Crafty Christmas Collection

Hello everyone!
Tis the season to need gift wrapping! There always seems to be some little trinket that doesn't really fit traditional wrapping.  When such is the case, make your own!

Here is the template I used for my box.

I used the DCWV "Crafty Christmas" cardstock for the box. The snowflakes are printed on kraft paper and then a varnish is printed over them. The fun thing about that is it acts as a resist!  

I wanted this box to have a frostier look than the kraft color, so I used some Picket Fence Distress Stain to change the background. The varnished snowflakes really pop against the white background!

So many possibilities for the varnished card stock!
