Scrapbook Steals Blog Hop!

I am thrilled to be part of the Scrapbook Steals Blog Hop this month!
We are showcasing the amazing
available today at the Scrapbook Steals Network a great source for all your scrapbook supplies.
You should have come from Alice's blog if not you may want to start at the beginning of the hop
I decided to alter a little gingerbread house box I found in a store. 

 The ribbon was a perfect trim to finish off the ends of the house. The ribbon is strong and sturdy making it very easy to put in place.
 I created the little wreath by using punched out holly leaves.
 The stamped image is from Lily of the Valley and the window stamp is from Magnolia.
