"Christmas Boxes"



Do you every need that last minute gift for someone who drops by or, a small little gift for a neighbor, or co-worker? This is what I came up with. I found these boxes at our local Dollar store. There are two boxes per pack, a 4" square and a 3" square. They are heavy cardboard and come with the shiny red paper  already on them. I then used my Nestablitites to punch out the labels and frames. I used my ODB stamps for the Bible verses. I added various ribbons, flowers, garland and stamped images to decorate the  boxes. I plan to add homemade cookies and candies for the inside. This is a fast, fun, homemade, gift that will let someone know you think they are special. In these hard economic times this is an inexpensive way to share a gift. Hope you like this idea and it helps you to look for some 'homemade' fun.
I am entering these boxes at the following challenges:

I just love boxes to decorate! I love making them...but if I can find them already made at a good price...why make them. This is a wonderful idea!
