Christmas Gift Box

Several weeks ago when I started making the party boxes for Renee's birthday party, I considered making them larger than the original size. I increased the size by 30 % in Photoshop and printed one off. It turned out they were going to be too big, so I decided to decorate it as a Christmas gift box instead.

Supplies: Box template Papertrey Ink, Cardstock: Bazzill Basics, Patterned Paper: October Afternoon, Snowflake die: Cuttlebug, Ribbon: local haberdashery, Clear Stamps: Papertrey Ink, Tag: newsagent, Twine: Martha Stewart, Ink: Staz'On (Jet Black), Stampin'Up (Turquoise), Button: Basic Grey.

Tomorrow I'll be packing to go to Holland with the children for 3 days to say goodbye to my family as we're off to Australia in just over 4 weeks. For those who are wondering, we are moving back to Melbourne. Can't wait for that sunshine since it's been so incredibly wet here over the past month. However I'm also still looking forward to our Christmas Eve Pantomime, ice skating at Hampton Court, Boxing Day with the family and our Murder Mystery Party on New Year's Eve. If I get time to photograph the invites, I'll post them tomorrow.

Don't you just love the Tucked Away template? It's one of my favorites. You did a wonderful job on this one.
