Cute Little Elf Jacket Lolly Box

Today I have an adorable little Elf Jacket box that holds a Chocolate Elf Lolly.

This is the 2nd box I have made for these elf lollies, the 1st box was for my 4 year old Godson Oliver and I needed a more grown-up box for my Godson Connor who’s nearly 10.  If you would like to see the 1st box click here.  It was while I was making Oliver’s box that the idea for this box came to me.

Quick Last Minute Box of Goodies

Last minute Christmas present using year of cheer dsp, foil snowflakes and the Snowflake Sentiments stamp set I have a quick and easy last minute Christmas gift today.

Do you get unexpected visitors over Christmas and realise that you haven’t got a gift for them? This always happens at our house but not this year, I have several bottles of wine that I made Bottle Covers for and I also have a few pre bought boxes that are filled with goodies that are suitable for families.

 

I know box making can be daunting for some crafters and Christmas is a busy time of year for us too so why not buy some pre-made boxes and decorate them yourself.  I went into Clintons a while back and they had a 70% sale on their boxes so I bought quite a few in different sizes that I could use for last minute gifts.  I want to say a big Thank You to Helen Watson for letting me know about the sale.

My daughter Kayleigh is amazing, she is kind, caring and beautiful inside and out.  As soon as I see her she cheers me up and she always makes me laugh.

Whenever Kayleigh goes shopping she always comes home with something for me, sometimes it’s something she’s seen that I can make a pretty box for or it’s a new chocolate she has found for us to try.

 

When Kayleigh came home with a box of Limited Edition Mint Lindor I just had to make a pretty box for them.

Heat Embossed Foil Snowflakes

I was heat embossing Christmas sentiments yesterday afternoon and out of the corner of my eye I spotted the Foil Snowflakes I had on my worktop and I had one of those ‘light bulb moments’.

There are 12 gold and 12 silver snowflakes but I wanted to see if I could emboss them with copper embossing powder.
