Blinged-out Holiday Card Keeper

Hello, sparkle lovin' friends! I hope you had a MOST delightful Christmas...
What a WONDERFUL time of the year to be advocating the use of gorgeous
Want2Scrap™ bling... {I love it SO!} I cannot shake the Christmas spirit, one
bit, at this point, so in the fine spirit of the season, I'm still getting my
Christmas ON, but in a handy, "wrap it up" kind of way...

An altered box, to store Christmas cards! Blinged OUT fun, to last the whole
year through! {I just can't part with the lovely cards and super photos friends
and family send every year...} I took a card organizer, who's colors I could not
abide - and blinged it out to holiday fabulousness... Here! Let me show you!

I've always cherished this box, given to my by my dear MIL, with wonderful
intentions... {But the color made me turn away - it does NOT match anywhere
in my rustic, lil' ranch life... Alas... what SHOULD a crafty person do?

Oh, wait - I KNOW! Grab a WHOLE bunch of Want2Scrap™ bling, and your
fave-o-fave seasonal papers, and other such holiday details and BLING it ON!

A crafty soul, like mine, NEVER tires of the magic of the bejeweled tiers of
Nestabling™, Nestaboard™, and perfectly cut papers from coordinating
Nestability shapes from Spellbinders™ - *Purrrrrrr*Purrrrrrr*MEOW!

Not to mention, easy, custom bling-ed out accents, with gorgeous materials
like the Beautiful Bling Strips, which are SO easy to place! Here, I took ad-
vantage of the clear backing that Want2Scrap™ bling is packaged on, by
planning my bling application AND checking it twice! {Santa approved bling
application! - Put THAT in the commercial! hee hee}

With similar technique and ease, it's easy to elongate these gorgeous strips of
, by planning where an how to line them up first - when this line was
completed, it looked like this:

Nestaboard™ and other Want2Scrap™ chipboard elements are easy to custom-
ize to your color palette! It's so fast and fun to sponge EcoGreen Acrylic Paint
onto a chipboard accent, to truly punctuate the mood of this lovely card box!

BLING it up, for that perfect PIZAZZ and "Bam!" - you're cookin' with OIL!

That's right, Santa - you're looking mighty fine and festive with multi frames
-o-bling, and lovely, custom blinged embellishments!

I can hardly wait to hoard... ur, uh, I mean ORGANIZE this year's collection
of Holiday cards for safe keeping! YOU never know what I might need THEM
for in the future! {Maybe my NEXT holiday project! Mwahhh, ha ha!}

I sure am DELIGHTED to share my love-o-the craft and yet ANOTHER way
to love, love, love, and HOARD, your favorite Want2Scrap™ products, and
then some! {WHAT fun!} I truly hope Santa took the best of care to you and
your loved ones this year! Thanks for tuning in - and remember: BLING on!
