Little Boxes, Little Boxes...

Good morning all....
....bet you're all singing now - just be glad you can't hear my tone deaf version at this end!

Did someone mention Christmas?? Actually I'm about ready - pressies are all wrapped and under the tree; most of the cleaning is done and the nice people from Tesco are delivering my food shopping later. Just need a card for hubby and don't tell but I might do my recycling trick again...he'll never notice!

Needed some boxes for little gifts of Molton Brown travel size bottles, so went to my go to tutorial and made these last night. These are made with 12x12 papers from Tilda and the finished size is about 41/2" square by a little over 2" high..

Each box is two-tone...the papers are double sided and I've used opposite sides for the bases and lids. These are very sturdy boxes and can be made with any size of square paper...I tend to use the thicker scrap booking papers (partly because I have loads of them lol), just make sure you use a bone folder to get the creases neat.

I'll be round to catch up with you all again very soon :)
