Today I'd like to share something I've made for my very best friend, Hazel. She's opened it this morning so I can share it with you all now!
She loves everything about Christmas so this year I decided to make her an Advent present, so that she can enjoy the approach to Christmas even more :)
Here it is...
I made 24 little boxes from kraft cardstock the same way that I made my storage boxes for my card scraps here but adjusting the measurements slightly to create a top flap closure.
Each box was stamped with a design from Clearly Besotted Stamps Signature Christmas and Signature Christmas Additions stamp sets. I kept the traditional red and green theme throughout.
I created the tags using a die from Clearly Besotted Stamps Tag Along set and stamped the numbers using Dovecraft Numbers stamp set in Versafine Onyx Black. I attached the tags to some green florists twine I had in my stash and tied this in a bow around each box to secure.
I placed all the boxes randomly in a Christmas decoration box I found at Dunelm Mill, similar to this one. It was purely a fluke that the boxes fitted perfectly!
Each little box contains a small gift but obviously I can't share the contents with you as Hazel is one of my followers! I've been collecting gift items for the past two or three months, you've no idea how difficult it was to find things small enough to fit in the boxes but I managed it in the end!
On a separate note, I finally made a start last night making my main batch of Christmas cards. Once these have been posted out I'll share them with you.
That's all for now, I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. I'm off out shortly to enjoy a nice carvery lunch.
