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,

Twinkling Congratulations


Ahhh, how peaceful and serene is this card? A change away from the Festive theme that I’ve had going on the past few weeks and can suit any occasion – with the gorgeous starry sky and the subtles colours to accompany it.

To add layers to this card, I used a circle of vellum – which also adds a backdrop to the sentiment and provides the perfect area for some glimmer stars. Completed with a quick ‘congratulations’ sentiment, which can be changed out to suit.

I absolutely love this card and the Designer Series Paper (DSP) used, I really didn’t want to cut into it, but it makes such a lovely background and serves this card justice.

How are you finding the Twinkle Twinkle suite? Let me see what you’ve made..

Best Wishes,
