Pay attention to the box please.

Is anyone in a panic yet – it’s Christmas eve and I have my last batch of cookies to bake, forgotten presents to buy and wrap, several Christmas decorations that fell off that needs to be put back up. So much to do and so little time…

Here are the baked goods I’m giving to my friends and neighbors this year – focus on the gift box please. I spent more time on the box than the cookies:

Yup every box is different. I got these white boxes from TPC Studio but I discovered you could get them at Michaels for almost half the price of what I paid for them…Grrrr..too late now but I know better for next time.

Covered all the sides with patterned paper (these are from Webster’s Pages, Graphics 45 and October Afternoon). Cut 2 3” square diagonally into triangles to decorate the top of the box. I used different Stampendous stamps for labels and tags for the boxes. Seen here are From the Kitchen Perfectly Clear Stamp set and Cling Poinsettia Silhouette.

From the Kitchen Stamp set was colored with Copic Markers and Cling Poinsettia Silhouette was embossed with Stampendous Vintage Embossing Tinsel (Vintage Mahogany for the poinsetta & Vintage Olive for the leaves). Here are a few up close look.

Merry Christmas everyone!!
