Sooooo, Christmas is really marching on its way!... and this weeks theme on Charisma Cardz is 'Last Minute Christmas Makes'. We have mutliple sponsors this week, Meljens Designs, Pretty Little Ribbon Shop and All That Scraps, so lots of great prizes and well worth playing along. The rest of the DT have come up with some great and original inspiration too, so I hope you get time to check it out. :)
For my 'last minute xmas makes' I set my digi-die cutter off and let it do all the work! :D lol. Both of these boxes were available as a download, and I just walked way and left it to it. It took about 15 mins to cut both boxes, and then just about 10 mins to fold them, fill with sweeties and tie up with ribbon. I dangled little Tilda faeries and thought that these were lovely, inexpensive gifts for classmates or colleagues.
I actually have to sell my fabulous digi-die cutter (Silhouette SD), because Santa is bringing me a larger model for christmas. Hubby says I dont need 2, and he is right, so if anyone is interested in buying it before it ends up on ebay, please feel free to email me. I have the box and all the original gubbins (software etc), and as you can see from my blog its created some wonderful things, but has not been over-used at all. It is just 6 months old.
I also thought I would share a pic of the 'Advent Calendar' I made for my very generous husband! :) and he has been taking these in his pack-up for work. They are not normally this full though! lol :D
I designed the label in Do-Crafts Forever Friends software, imported it to my Silhouette software, printed it, cut it and then cut out the numbers in different paper patterns.
I am entering my gift boxes in the following competitions:
