My homemade holiday gift is this pretty box!
This beautiful grape box would make a beautiful gift on it's own.  You could put a plant in it or as I did...fill it with one or more bottles of liquid grape!

Mix Americana Cottonball and Lavender Fields acrylic paint (1/2 and 1/2) together and the box paint box.

Stamp the Wine Labels backgrounder on tissue with black ink multiple times and color with markers.
When paint on box is dry adhere tissue paper to box with Decoupage glue.

Stamp Jumbo grape and leaves four times on white cardstock with black ink and color with markers.fussy cut out grapes and leaves and adhere  to box with Decoupage glue.
Stamp the swirly image from the Jumbo Grapes set with versamark ink on the box and emboss with Amethyst EP.
To finish it off, randomly sprinkle elements from Encrusted Jewel purple kit on the box and heat to melt.
