Boxes galore

Good morning all. I hope everyone is well.
I'm hopefully going to get my decorations up today, I did some of the cleaning yesterday to make way for them. The rest of the house will be gutted during the week ready for my Mum arriving for Christmas. I eventually got the presents made for my sisters this week so everything is now wrapped and ready to deliver, thank goodness.

Sharing the boxes I made for my sisters and niece today.

Papers are all from Papermania, each box takes two 12 inch square sheets and the finished size is about four and a half inches square. Ribbons and embellishments are all from my Christmas stash box. Most of the ribbons are recycled from previous years Christmas cakes, the sentiments are several years old and the embellishments on the last box are all at least a year old and recycled.

These were all filled with Molton Brown travel size toiletries.

You can find the tutorial to make the boxes here.
