Merry Christmas To One and All


This will be my last post before THE BIG DAY on Sunday so it seemed right I show you this festive little Santa box I made. I saw THIS tutorial over at Amazing Paper Grace and couldn't help myself - I HAD to try it out - LOL. Unfortunately I don't have all the spellbinders dies Becca is lucky enough to own so I to re-work parts of it. His face uses a large circle nestability with the top taken off. The box base and lid are made from squares cut at 5 5/8" and scored at 1 1/4" all around and made into a simple box. My box is 6" high FYI.

I also noticed this week that my blog has reached 2 VERY exciting milestones at the same time - 200,000 visitors and 700 followers!!!! Because of the timing I'll be planning a VERY special surprise early in the New Year.

Now before I sign off I want to wish each and everyone of you......
