Merry Christmas!!!

Hello friends, this is the last post for me before Christmas! I thought I would share an easy box that you could make quickly for any occasion!

This box came together really quickly! The front and back were created by simply cutting and embossing two Spellbinders Grand Big Scallop Circles. Then I cut and embossed a regular Spellbinders Grand Circle to fit inside the front panel. The box inside measures 4"x4"x4.25".

After scoring the box, I simply scored the scallop panels then glued them all together. I used elements from October Afternoon's Holiday Style collection to bring the box together. All edges were inked with Tim Holtz Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. Next, I added a black swirly bling from Want2Scrap and cut and embossed two Heartfelt Creations Spellbinders Holly leaves.

To finish it off, I added some white seam binding and mini jingle bells tied off with some red twine.

I am tucking an OU cup/mug and Starbuck's giftcard inside for my mother-in-law. I'd like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! May you be surrounded by family and friends! God bless you all and don't forget the real reason for the season!
