Hi there bloggers one and all - I'm posting my creation for the mid-month reminder of the CCAYR. Our theme is 'Anything but a Card' and I love making Christmas gift boxes so I made another 'milk carton' type box for, say, a bottle of aftershave perhaps, or a new tie (the maestro loves fancy ties for work - just a little obsession of his!!) Anyway I've made a gift box which is not 'fluffy' but more 'masculine' - just for him!
I made this 8" high box out of a piece of double sided A3 patterned card from Crafters' Companion. The most difficult part was cutting the two diamond shapes out of the front and rear of the box. The rest of the box was decorated with snowflakes which were sprayed with Crafters' Companion Stick and Stay and then covered in luscious gold glitter! I used a piece of thickish acetate that I'd 'saved' from the package of some dies for the diamond aperture. I'll have to put this somewhere safe for next year and hope that I can find it again (😉).
Check out what my teamies have created over on the CCAYR Challenge - if you'd like to enter, the challenge doesn't close until the end of March and there's this wonderful prize for the winner too!
I'd like to thank you for checking out this gift box and I do hope you can take part in our challenge. You know I've said this before - you can never be too early for Christmas .............. sorry if I've just made you spit and splutter at the 'puter!!
Big hugs to you all, take care!
