A Christmas Greeting with something for eating!




Tonight I wanted to share with you one of the gift boxes that I made for my daughter's Brownie Leaders with help from Holly of course.  I hope the ladies don't see this post before they've had a chance to open them.

You may see a few slight smudge marks as Holly was in charge of the stamping and she accidentally put her hand in the ink pad.  Lol!!

Here's the box when you slide off the belly band revealing that the decoration on the front is actually a pocket to hold a gift card.


And finally when you lift the flap, a box of sweets with the message - "A Christmas Greeting with something for eating." 


Mmmm I could dive into Maltesers right now.  Just as well as soon as we were finished she was off to her Brownies proudly taken her gifts with her.  Or I might have had to buy another box or two! 

Here's the supplies to make this -

Card - 12 x 12 Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red
Ink - Whisper White, Real Red
Stamps - Serene Snowflakes, Tags til Christmas
Big Shot - Top Note Die
Punch - Corner Rounder, 1/2" circle
