Gleaming Selection Box

I think I am well and truly getting into the Christmas spirit now – the second lockdown that the UK currently faces has almost pushed me into getting organised and so my projects have turned to Christmas treats for my team at work. Every year, they get a box (or bag) of handmade gifts from me as a Christmas present usually including something tasty and something they can put to use in their role.

This gorgeous box is a selection box and houses four different mini chocolate bars (multipack size). Rather than building segments into the base, I have created four separate mini boxes and then housed them with a single lid. The Brightly Gleaming paper has to be one of my ultimate favourites and I will be sad to stop using this paper when the Mini Catalogue comes to an end. However, whilst its still here, I will continue to use it as much as I can (and quite possibly buy more!)

What chocolates would you house in a box like this? Let me know…

Best wishes,

Merry Merlot and the absolutely gorgeous Joyous Noel Designer Series Paper (DSP) make another appearance on the blog today. They are both highly addictive craft materials and once you start, you just can’t stop crafting with them. This time I have teamed them with the amazing double sided Copper and Merlot ribbon & the Joyous Noel Glimmer paper. WOW!

The foiled snowflakes on this piece of DSP really set the card alive and I wanted them to be the main focus of this card. The only things I added were a small piece of ribbon to set behind my sentiment, punched out and bordered with Glimmer.

For the sentiment, I used the Flourish Filigree stamp set and fussy cut around the shape to allow a border of glimmer to peek from behind it. The double sided ribbon adds the final touches to the card.

Let me know what you think.

Best Wishes,
