Boxing Day

Coming up to Christmas....my kitchen takes a bit of a battering. Being an Insulin Dependent Diabetic...you don't usually cook sweet things...but the festive season kinda dictates that its needed!! So with that in mind...I hit the kitchen and made Florentimes, Choc/Walnut Fudge and White Christmas. Most of it went to the kid's teachers in decorated noodle boxes. However, you always need to find that unique way to deliver that special sugar hit!!

I found mine whilst browsing an issue of "Cardmaking for Birthdays" (#1) in the article "The Perfect Package". This is what the finished result looked like!!











The best thing about these cute little boxes is that it is all made out of 1 sheet of A4 cardstock. The other good thing is that they hold HEAPS!!!!!



I have been a bit hit and miss with belly bands, but this one was easy peasy and the "bow" on top is 6 scallop circle punches (5 folded in 1/2 and glued back to back and the 6th acts as the base to which they are glued.)



Sorry that I can't help you with a link to "How to", but if you wish to know more, drop me an e mail at ellouise1969@hotmail.com and I'll try and organise a way of getting the measurements to you.

Stuff used:
Cardstock: (SU) Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip.
Paper: (SU)  Holiday Treasures DSP
Ink: Versamark,
Stamp Set: (SU) Seasons of Joy
Punch: (SU) Scallop Circle Punch

Enjoy what the day brings you.
