Wrapping Christmas Pressie's

Just got two more Christmas presents to buy and then I have done. The bit I don't enjoy that much is wrapping them all up so thought I would make a few boxes for some of the smaller things rather than use wrapping paper.

This is a box purchased from the Silhouette store made using black card and papers that have been in my stash for quite a while. This box fits two Bath Bombs from Lush perfectly - I wrapped the bombs in pink tissue paper first. At the top of the box I cut the pink tissue paper into ribbons so that it covers up the little hole at the top - just to stop prying eyes.

This is the front of the box:

The back of the box (other two sides are same):

Once it was cut out it was very simple to put together - just stick the panels onto the main box first before you assemble it.

Well, I have one more of these to do, a Birthday card and a new home card and that will be me all up to date on the crafting front. May even get the time to do a little online shopping. Hope everyone is having a good weekend so far x
