Box in a box




Second post of the night and still not a single stamp in sight.  Spent a while this afternoon making this little box in box which I did at a Stampin up class a while ago. Jill, who took the class, kindly let me have a template for a simplified version she had worked out later and it was much quicker than the original one we did.All the papers are Graphic 45. I wish I had put a different ribbon on it as the one I used is a bit heavy for it but I'm not about to take it apart now . The last two pics are a little decorated tea light (battery one of course) which we also did at the same class. The photos are lousy but the best of a very bad bunch ! I made the box for  Make My Monday which is for a box in Christmas style

  5. This is fantastic Joan! I love the traditional vintage look of it and the design of the box is just brilliant. The little tealight is cute too - I've seen these decorated as (calorie free!) birthday cakes but never as a Christmas one.
