Christmas Box

Well it was my turn over at the Christmas Card Club
to set the challenge .........
My teamies on Heartfelt Creations say 
I like my boxes ....... well guess what they are right !! hehe !!
So my challenge had to be make anything other than a card !
And of course I had to make a box !!

Here it is open .........

This is one of my flip over boxes,
I have a tutorial HERE
Check it out its really easy to make !

I got one of my snowflake tree decs on it !!
You can just see it on the top left !!

Papers are Nitwits, image LOTV, Spellbinder Lacey square die,
Die'sire Holly die and poinsettias are from the Bebunni CD.
I chose this image as it has present on it and being a box for a present ........
I thought I would make it so it matched the last Christmas card 
I made for the Christmas card challenge.
It sort of goes ........... 

I'd like to thank everyone for voting over at Heartfelt Creations
for the DT, if you haven't yet voted, obviously I'd love you to vote for me........
Its a hard ask as the team has become such good friends.

Oh and I made a Cracker !!
As I was tidying away I found some Cracker die cuts in my stash.
So I thought I would decorate it up
as I had left overs from my box !

I thought I would pop a pair of ear-rings 
in it for Caitlyn on the tree.

Happy crafting !!
Hope your all having a great weekend.
We are busy busy getting things sorted for
getting married on Saturday !!!
WOW its nearly here !!!
Right better go as I have a conservatory to scrub !


  1. Liz, what a lovely trio of projects. I MUST have a go at doing the box, it is really lovely. How you have time to do all of your crafting and keep your blog going when you are so close to your wedding day I don't know! Hope the conservatory is gleaming by now and that you get some time to relax. Pat x

    1. Hehe I made loads of things in advance and scheduled a lot of posts! I made my guest book tho yesterday! I'll share it on Saturday on here! Thank you for all your comments I love reading them. Hugs xx

  2. Thank you sooooo much for this challenge theme Lizzie - I totally enjoyed doing something other than a card for once and I am pleased with my little, albeit simple, box. I love how you have made your box, it looks as if you like poinsettias as much as I do - lol!! Enjoy your wedding to Prince Charming - I have my fingers crossed for good weather.

    Hugs to you Sue Pxxx

  3. Your box is gorgeous Lizzie...I'm waiting for Asda to get their Xmas decs in to replenish my stock of snowflakes!! Hope all goes well for the wedding. Carol x

  4. Fabulous box!!! Also the card and the cracker are very pretty!

  5. I love your boxes Lizzie, they are always so pretty and decorative. I am so glad you picked this theme, I love constructing 3d projects too. A beautiful array of projects today from you, love those beautiful poinsettias.
    Wishing you all the best for Saturday, hope the weather is kind.

  6. Love the style of your gorgeous box. That fold over lid is so pretty. Well done you for matching it to your last card. Your flower looks amazing.
    The Christmas cracker looks beautiful. I have never tried these but want to now! Great idea for a bit of jewelry!
    Sorry I am late...but will finish up and post soon as I can manage the stairs. Hopefully later today if the ice does it's magic!

  7. Another gorgeous box Lizzie! Have a really happy wedding day - won't wish you luck because it doesn't sound as if you'll need it! Hugs Christine xx

  8. Happy Wedding Day huni! I really hope you had a wonderful day.
    Wow, oh wow I love it! Now I don't do the measuring and folding very well but I must admit I am tempted to try this! Thank you for a wonderful challenge too Karen x

    1. It's mega easy honest! You could even use a recycled box in the middle and make the fold around it!
