DAY 11 - Christmas Inspiration

Hello Crafters!

Thankyou for all of your lovely comments on my Christmas Inspiration so far. I am so grateful to everyone for making the effort to leave a comment.
(If you are unsure about how to leave a comment please ask and I will help you)

Today's offering is not a card ~

It's a decorated box instead.
I have covered the box using 12" x 12" papers from Crafts Creation and then used one of the tonic Christmas Baubles to simply and easily decorate the top of the box.  The box measured approximately 7" by 4" and would be suitable for so many different gift ideas at Christmastime.
The star has been cut in white glitter card to give it a bit of bling.  Ribbon, organza and a buckle finish the box off.  
I think whoever receives this, with a present in it, would be pleased (and even better if they are a crafter! I am sure that there would be a future use for it to store some bits and pieces!)
I hope you like the project and thankyou again for popping by.
Don't forget by leaving a comment you will automatically be put into the draw for blog candy at the end of the 30 days.
Hope to see you here again tomorrow,
Bye for now
Jo xx
