Countdown to Christmas Project No 2 Carton Style Christmas Gift Box

Here is Project No. 2 in my Christmas Countdown!

Its a cute carton style gift box which has a really neat closure at the top of the sparkly roof !

This little box is perfect for multitude of different Christmas gifts - it's a good size and could hold small votives, chocolates, cosmetics, scented candles, etc.

I love how it turned out - and I love the "Ho Ho Ho" stamp from the Labels To Love stamp set which co-ordinates with the Everyday Label Punch.  I layered the punched sentiment on die cut piece of Very Vanilla card stock.  I have found the the Lots of Labels Framelits Dies mirror the shape of the Everyday Labels punch perfectly, to create a really attractive topper.

I used my Ticket Tear Border Punch on some Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for the roof.

I love this little box and I hope you do too.

Here is a video tutorial for those of you who feel inspired to dive in and have a go at making one.

Just imagine these pretty little boxes under the Christmas Tree or on your Mantlepiece.  They are pretty enough to be used as a simple but stylish Christmas Decorations.

Well that's Project No 2 one and dusted - so its back to the craft room to perfect Project No 3.

Bye for now,

Linda xx
