Advent Calendar Window #6

Welcome to the 6th Window of the LLC Advent Calendar!
 Here with you today is Elin and one of my favourite products from the LLC Store are the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Memo Pins! I find myself using these pins on almost every project these days. They are such a great detail and add a hint of "hardness" to my often soft projects.

...and today's candy is a set of Idea-ology Memo Pins from Tim Holtz:

For your chance of winning, please do the following:
1) Become a follower of this blog if you're not already
2) Post our Advent Blinkie in your Blog Sidebar. The html code can be found here.
3) Leave a comment on the blog post with your thoughts on the project.

...and here you can see how I have used Idea-ology Memo Pins on my giftbox:
 The box is the box the Cabernet cheese comes in when buying it at a store here in Norway.
I've covered it with papers from Maja Design's latest collection: It's Christmas Time. The paper is named The perfect Gift.
As for the top decoration, I have used Jute Fabric, a fabric rose from the Maya Road Primrose Organza Trim, Roses with Glass Pearls from KOG and a gorgeous Brass Butterfly to top it all.
 I have used a natural ribbon around the box, and the Idea-ology Memo Pins combined with a pearl from Melissa Frances gave it the look I wanted.
Now ain't this charm a beauty? I love the look of it! 
I have put some Cheese Cloth inside my box, along with a home made soap. The perfect gift for a good friend, don't you think?

That's it from me today, hope you join in on our calendar and wishing you the best of luck!
With love
- Elin
