Hello are we all getting in the Christmas spirit? I know I am....I get excited this time of year...there is always a bit of magic weaving itself through little ordinary family moments. Things seem sweeter and dearer to me....yes I get a bit nostalgic. GCD Studios wanted us to create a Christmas gift of some type. I decided to use the Christmas Sleigh collection. I used two of the papers-Cranberry sauce (love that name), and Christmas cloth. I also used an Artsy Urban transparancy. I wanted to do something relatively inexpensive and easy to replicate in case I wanted to make several. You never know when you need something for a teacher, mail lady, neighbor etc. I bought the little wood container from the Dollar Tree...drew a pattern on the papers and set to work cutting out. Adhered with wood glue and sanded and inked for some distressing. I used one of my Sizzix diecuts for the mistle toe and adhered for some "greenery"...added my beloved seambinding, and made a little card for my sentiments. I added some filler inside (I used vintage sheet music for an old fashion touch) and added some Ghiredelli chocolates . Simple and oh so sweet LITERALLY, lol. Hope you like! Merry Christmas everyone!

Thinking of you and hoping you continue being your creative self!
What a sweet little holiday gift box, Cherry! Just adorable!
