Pixie's Snippets Playground

Wow, where has the last week gone to, it's just flown by. I had cards to post but not enough time to post them. After the rushing around during the week I spent yesterday making 12 gift boxes. Earlier this year I bought a gift box die from Tattered Lace with the intention of making these boxes for Christmas day. I've made 6 green and 6 red and then alternated the colours for the matting (also cut out of the box dies). All of the gold embellishments and gold matting were cut from scraps from my box (I was able to use up loads of the silly little bits around the top of the box, the bits I just can't bear to throw away) and then backed the parcel and bauble dies with the off cuts from the main boxes. The images are all from Joanna Sheen's Hollypondhill CD, I took the images into MCS and re-sized them to fit. Now the only thing left to do now is to fill them. And of course enter them into the challenge over at Pixies Snippets Playground.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

These boxes are gorgeous Sue. I've just completed an order for ten Christmas ornaments and I made the boxes to match, which actually took me longer than the rest of my crafting put together! You have a wonderful selection here and I really like how you've made them all look so different, great work. Sandra X
