Some Christmas Boxes

I hope everyone had an enjoyable Christmas with family, presents, food and fun. We had a very wet Christmas Day this year and still haven't seen too much sun, although it was out for a bit today but not looking good now. My heart goes out to all of those people who are in the terrible flood zones.

After searching for something to post I came across some of the boxes that I had made for the markets and thought I would share them with you. The boxes were a huge hit and it is lovely to hear what some of the buyers were going to put in them.

So here we go:-

As you can tell I absolutely love this Fancy Favour Box die. I have made the box with Very Vanilla and stamped part of the big tree from Lovely as a Tree onto vanilla and then mounted it onto Old Olive. The little tag in the front is also made with the Big Shot and I have stamped part of the vine from Vintage Vogue onto the vanilla oval and stamped over that with the greeting. All finished off with a lovely piece of satin ribbon.

This next one is made using a piece of the Ski Slope DSP, wrapped with a ribbon and a tag made with the big shot in Chocolate Chip and then the lovely bauble stamped in Real Red. Very plain and simple.
This is also a quick and easy way to make a box just that extra special for someone. The ribbon is tied around the whole of the box and then tied up the top with a small piece of ribbon. The main box is made with Poppy Parade and a strip of Dashing DSP. The tag is made using the scallop circle in Very Vanilla, layered with a circle of Poppy Parade and the image stamped on Very Vanilla with Old Olive.

Hopefully I will get some stamping time soon so I can have something else to show you instead of Christmas bits.

Happy stamping,

They all look very fancy, love the one tied up with ribbon.
Hope you get lots of sun in the days to come to dry out.

Oh Karen these are just lovely. My favourite is the third box in red. Simply stunning.

I agree with Patrice, my favourite is also the third red box, but they are all beautiful.
Bring on the sunshine.....
