Boxes, boxes!!

I saw a box that Beate created while browsing her blog. Well it seemed just right for the Christmas gifts I make for my girlfriends and for cent sale prizes. Sorry about the lousy photo, in a hurry as usual. In total I think I made 48 of these so I am definitely over boxes. 24 of them I filled with cellaphane bags of Christmas lollies and the others were filled with good quality mini chocs, like flake, cherry ripe etc. I used my big Bow Easy to make the triple loop bows and some lovely organza ribbon that I bought on sale at Anne's when she was closing down. The tops of most of the boxes is Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses 6 x 6 paper pad and the other 12 were done with some dsp that I had around. All the bottoms I matched up SU plain c/s in the A4 size.

I think that most of my friends appreciated the work that went into these, hope so anyway.
At the moment, I'm decluttering my house and trying to make Christmas cards at the same time. Not easy, especially when my craft room is part of the decluttering lol. My OH is on holiday at the moment, so I'm making use of that.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend.
