Stocking Stuffer Boxes for Mom-n-Dad

Hello stampers! I made 2 more of these cute stocking "boxes" and this time for my mom and dad. My dad's (shown below) is regular sized, but my mom's is HUGE! It measures 9 1/4" x 7 1/4" so it can accomodate the beaded ornament I made for her. It's really hard to get a good picture with all my shadows and lighting in the room.
A few details about her box: I added faux zigzag stitching on the toe & heel; crystals to the 3 flower centers (near the toe); white gel pen stitching all around stocking; scalloped the bottom of the cuff in choc. chip and crimped the pink layer, glued on buttons and hand-sewed the wire words to cuff; cuttlebugged the pink oval behind angel, added dazzling diamonds to her wings and dress trim and popped her up on thick dimensional tape. The stain ribbon matches perfectly and I went all the way around box with it to help with sturdiness.
Here's a picture of the top and bottom of box. I had to cut a hole in the bottom so the stem of ornament could fit through. There's plenty of room around the ornament to fit some tissue paper around it =)

I'm really happy with the way this one turned out. OH...I just remembered I forgot to add the "loop" to the top corner of stocking, but no biggy, I'll add that b4 giving to her. And, here's the regular-sized one I made for my dad:

I believe I got this funky green ribbon in a bundle that I won over at Bella's Creative Place, and it really adds to the masculine feel for this one. LOVE IT!

The template is by Lauren Meader and can be found HERE. This angel is called Angel Wings and is by Paper Pretties. Thanks for dropping by today!! School was cancelled today, so we're off to go sledding. Have a great day!
