Stamping Christmas boxes

Second post of the night. I am on a roll. I wanted to show you some of the other gift boxes I made for christmas. The first on is the box in a bag. I must have been one of the last people to try these. Once I started I could stop. They are soo easy and look really cool. The receipents of the boxes really loved them.



Recipe:

card/ink: real red, designer series paper dashing,whisper white
stamp set: present wheel ( sorry I can't remember the name)
accessories: 1 1/4 " circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop punch, tab punch, ribbon


I saw these santa style bag in a box on splitcoast stampers, and couldn't resist making one. My daughter Caitlin just loved them.



Recipe:
card: real red, old olive, basic black
accessories: slit punch, tab punch, ribbon


The next is a box we made at our last meeting for the year, using acetate. It is a lovely box perfect for choccies, soap etc.






Recipe:
stamp set: season of joy
card/ink: real red, always artichoke, designer series paper dashing
accessories: 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, scallop punch, ribbon


I am looking forward to making some of these boxes using some of the papers from the summer mini catalogue. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Anne-Marie, I'm glad I stopped by - these boxes are great! I'm going to save the idea for party favors for my girls' birthday parties and for Christmas goodies next year! I'm always looking for things that are fast, easy, but look great like these do! Hope the new year is off to a good start for you! Kristin
