A while ago I showed you my 3D shaker tin ornaments. They have a panel on the back so they are a card and ornament all in one and look a bit fancier in these cute boxes.
When I get a bit overwhelmed with my 'to do' lists I always go into full avoidance mode for a while. So even though I am a bit pushed for time I thought I would check out the challenge over at Just Add Ink this week to see if my projects would fit the bill. Thanks to the JAI crew I was able to avoid my jobs for quite a while but eventually came up with a way to make them fit......Noel Niceties made with an N-velope punch board........a bit of a stretch but a girl needs to be Naughty sometimes and hide in her craft room!
These boxes are so easy to make. I used a piece of paper from the Warmth & Cheer DSP stack (6 x 6") and scored at 5.4 and 9.7 cm on each side. The Crafty Owl has a fabulous online calculator for making boxes using the Envelope Punch Board. You just pop in the dimensions of the box you need and it comes up with the paper size and score and punch positions. I just fiddled with the measurements so that I didn't have to cut the paper down.
A belly band and some ribbon add a bit of extra decoration.
Tags from the Merriest Wishes bundle finish off the box.
No excuse now I guess.......off to work I go. Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas. I hope it is filled with much love and laughter.
