Silver Box Sneak Peek for CAS 252

I have been having fun creating gift packaging ideas right now.  When I decided to use Challenge #248 for the CAS Colour Challenge this week, I immediately knew it was time for a sneak peek of the Silver Mini Gable Boxes from the Occasions Catalog.  It worked perfectly for this challenge . 

I used Emerald Envy for the cardstock wrapping the box and the ribbon securing the handle, I used Tranquil Tide DSP for the band on top of the Emerald Envy cardstock and for the oval sentiment tag.  The box itself is metallic silver and I also heat embossed the sentiment in silver.

 While I was creating this box, I was having so much fun, I couldn't stop with just one.  The silver box is perfect to use with the Year of Cheer Specialty DSP.  The silver box brought out the silver snowflakes in the DSP and the gold satin ribbon highlights the gold snowflakes.  I even used a snowflake from the DSP to create a tag for the box.
I was first introduced to these boxes at OnStage when we had a chance to play with some of the products coming in the Occasions catalog.  This box was presented during the product showcase featuring Sweet Soiree and designed by Amy Koenders. 

If you love this Silver Box, it will be available when the 2018 Occasions Catalog goes LIVE January 3, 2018.  If you can't wait that long, or you'd like to use them for Christmas gifts, you can always join my team.  Demonstrators are able to order from the Occasions catalog now.   
 Make sure you check out CAS Colours and Sketches and see the inspiration card by the design team as well as the other creative entries and which previous challenges everyone chose.
