A Variation on a Theme...

Hiya! I think I may have a new obsession... Has anyone noticed the abundance of gift boxes around me lately?! They are such fun to make though & I am comforted by the fact that at some point they will come in useful, that is if I can bear to part with them!

This one is definately finding a new home though & already contains the cutest pair of teeny socks I've ever seen!

A bit of a departure from the run of Christmas themed projects from me today. However the stamp I used for this project is a christmas one called Belle's Carols. No sign of Belle though! It's funny but as soon as I saw this stamp I immediately thought how cute the little group of toys would look on their own for a child's card.

Don't you agree?

Image is coloured with distress inks & DP is Future Baby by Paper Adventures. Apologies for the appalling picture quality :( it really is fairly dismal around me today. I hope you are faring better!

  3. Funny! I just made a bunch of little boxes last night! Using my Cricut, and white 12x12 card stock. I wanted to see how big they'd be. I'll have quite a few small gifts that will fit in them. It was fun putting them all together! And they're soooo cute!
