Christmas Gift Box……

this week.
I have chose one of Lynnes Christmas Images and made a little gift box with a vintage feel.
I just love to work with neutral colours, so this week was a perfect for using browns and creams.

I have filled this box with chocolates and tissue paper, and while I was photographing it I had a couple of pairs ot young eyes watching me with interest, asking questions  hehe  ‘what are you doing mummy??’ – it did make me smile.
Like a true nut – sorry crafter !!! – I keep bits of sturdy cardboard packaging, for years sometimes for projects such as these……..so I made this lidded box freestyle
and painted it with kaisercraft paint, called Muddy Puddle, that looked like delicious melted chocolate as I painted with the brush.

Thank you so much for passing by to have a look at what I have been doing, I’m off to hand out the chocolates to my two little spectators before they burst…..hehe…..
