Take the "everyday" collection and make it a "Special Day"

The plaids, stripes, polka dots and rich color palette of Graphic 45's Raining Cats and Dogs Collection inspired me to use the gorgeous paper for a Christmas project. What's super great about this collection is that you can get double the fun for the money. It's so easy to have this collection cross-over to the Holiday season.

I grabbed one of Graphic 45's cool Kraft Mixed Media Boxes (5in x 5in) as the base of my gift set and let it bloom from there. The Mixed Media box comes with 6 photo mat cards. I converted them into a decorative wall piece to go inside the decorative box.

I've prepared a very short video (under 6 min) showing the transformation from plain to spectacular. This is a super simple way to "wow" someone with a handmade keepsake.
