Today I am posting some of the Christmas projects I have been working on for our November Craft fairs. The picture above and below are some of the lighted frames that I made. These are such fun to make because of the cool lights! The town scene are dies from Stampin Up. The Manger scene are dies that I bought from Darice. Love those dies!
I made a couple of these Gingerbread Gift boxes. You can see from the picture the top comes off so you can add your gifts. I am adding the link to the original instructions for these gift boxes. I made my own adjustments so that the top comes off. The tutorial has the closure at the top. Either closure works well. Love these instructions!
The boxes below are called Napkin Fold gift boxes. I used the directions from Samantha from Mixed Up crafts. You can find her tutorial here-
Her instructions are great! These boxes are really fun to make and so pretty when they are completed.

You lift one end and it opens like a flower-love it!
I had to make more Snowman Soup. This can will contain the ingredients for hot chocolate. That includes the hot cocoa mix, marshmallows and Hershey kisses plus a peppermint stick.
Just a quick personal note- we have a contract on our house! If all goes well- we may be moving in October. Of course, we have no where to move to as yet...but our plan is to have a place in Florida and a smaller home here in Maine. We may have to move in with my sister and her hubby in Yarmouth until we find a place. I keep telling my husband "it's an adventure"! The worst part is going to be packing up this home- and by that I mean my CRAFT ROOM.. I dread that!!
I will keep you posted!!
You have been busy! Love all your projects! Can't wait for the craft Fairs!ReplyDelete
Would you be kind enough to share directions for the Gingerbread Gift Box? I have a senior citizen who LOVES gingerbread "anything", and I'd love to make the box for her. Thanks so much!ReplyDelete
Here is the link to the tutorial I watched. I did adjust mine so the top comes off. These directions have the closure at the top.Delete
Hope this helps...
I added the link to my post as well...Delete
