Country View Crafts Challenge - Christmas Gifting

Happy November.  This month it is my turn to choose teh challenge over at Country View Crafts.  If, like me, you are in denial that it is Christmas next month you will suddenly realise that there isn't much time left to create.  

I love adding a personal touch to my gifts or even create the gifts themselves, so 'Christmas gifting' is a perfect opportunity to get ahead and to be inspired by projects created by others.

Here is my first project

I thought this cute box would be perfect to hold a small gift, or even to fill with chocolates.  It is also a Tim Holtz overload of goodiness.

Here are the products that I used to create this:

Sizzix Milk Carton die

Lisa Horton Euphoria Glitter Card

Tim Holtz Poinsettia die 

Tim Holtz Ideology

Here are some further pics

I'm really looking forward to filling this with a gift and giving it to a friend for Christmas.  

Do pop over to the Challenge blog and see the inspiration from the rest of the team.  I really hope that you join in with the challenge too.  Not only do you get to craft but you can make practical gifts or wrapping for Christmas too!  And just by entering the challenge you will be added to the draw to win a gift voucher to spend in store.

Thanks for joining me today.

Happy crafting!
