Christmas Gift Boxes

I have a set of simple Christmas boxes to share today...made using my We R Memory Keepers punch board and a selection of My Mind's Eye glittery papers (from the 'Countdown to Christmas', 'Wonderful Winter' and 'Believe' pads). The boxes measure 4x4x4 inches, and were each made from a single sheet of 12x12 paper.


I made some matching tags from snippets of the same papers, adding a Christmas tree shape cut using one of the dies from the 'Reindeer' stamp and die set by Hero Arts & Sizzix to a plain kraft tag. I filled the boxes with some little treats, then decorated them using some simple ribbons that I think came from Lidl...maybe last Christmas.

I'll hold my hand up to saying I would be lost without my WRMK boards, they are all fabulous but the envelopes and box ones are the most used. These are a gorgeous collection of boxes hun, I love the card you have chosen, and they look so pretty with the ribbons and tags. I think I should come round to you on Christmas Eve! Hugs xx
