Christmas treat boxes.

I got asked to make some little treat boxes for a work colleague.  I used a design from Jennifer McGuire (see her video here)

Michelle requested 6 of these....little boxes


I used a variety of colours and PP to make them.  For the bows I used a template I got with a magazine.    She was really pleased how they turned out. And I had a lot of fun making them as well.  Her idea is to fill them with cookies or fudge that she'll make with her 6yr old and 4 yr old.  What a great idea.

I sold so many cards at work that I've got a heap more to make so I can send our NZ family theirs.  I've got a few overseas ones on their way already and sent my local friends one's today.    Working on a few CAS cards I can make in a hurry. 

Just 17 more days till I head off on my overseas Christmas holiday.... going to spend some time with my daughter and her partner ( soon to be husband.... they are getting married on 31 December 2014) My whole family - Mum and Dad, son and his fiancée and hubby and I are going to Perth for 10 days.  Getting very excited.
