Good Morning! Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My oldest daughter and her family came in from Alabama and we all had Thanksgiving together at my youngest daughter's house. It is so nice to get together with family, but always so sad to see them leave.

Well, I have to confess I made two other boxes, but they did not turn out the way I wanted so I made a clear box. Actually, I bought the clear box and decorated it. I have several of the boxes and they are great to decorate and fill with candy, gift card or whatever you would like. I love this little Kringlet image it is so cheerful and happy. I stamped it twice and cut it out and popped it up. It is colored with Copics. Then, I used several different colors of stickles for the glitz and added a real little Christmas bell on the end of his cap. Check out the bow - I made it with the Bow Easy from SCACD. Believe me, this is the best $5 I ever spent. The border punch is a MS. To finish it off, I added three buttons with little bows and filled with metallic red confetti.
This little box is fun to make, but the image is what really makes it. I added a ribbon handle so it can be hung on the tree or on the fireplace.

Please be sure to check out the other DT samples. There is a tutorial and lots of good ideas for Christmas boxes. You can them out here.

Thank you for stopping by. If you have time, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
