Boxed in!

box-1

This year I participated in a Secret Santa with a bit of a difference. Not only did we have to buy our Santa gift we also had to make one! So I made a box using beer mats (new ones of course) and my lovely Bind it all. I had to raid my ribbon box for the fibres and used quite a few woolly ones to make it a bit more vintagy looking. I used a Mandala stamp (Papaermania), decoupaged it on the top and hey presto added a few charms and the box is made.

Xmas decs

I filled the box with twelve Christmas decorations. The instructions were in Craft Stamper ( Now there's a surprise :0)) and my friend Andrea kindly sent me the stamped images from her twelve days of Christmas stamp set.

So there you have it a box with the twelve days of Christmas. I have it on good authority that my Secret Santa liked his gift and I was really pleased with the result. I may even make myself one ready for next year!
