Crafty Cardmakers spotlight - containers


Grrr, bloomin' computers!  I just wrote a whole post out, with my 2yr old nagging at me the whole time for drinks, snacks, Noddy, Fireman Sam.... got it done, hit publish and it disappeared!!!!  Bah Humbug...

So I'm keeping it short this time in case the same happens again!  Our spotlight challenge at Crafty Cardmakers this fortnight is containers and fancy envelopes.  I've used a downloaded template from The Cutting Cafe to make my little stack of boxes - they're not as big as they look in the pic, they're quite teeny really.  I'm going to fill them with sweets for little Christmas gifts, and I've kept them quite simple because if I find the time I'm going to make a few of them.

I'm entering my boxes for the following challenges:

Hi Lisa sorry to hear about your lost post, but these boxes are gorgeous and so pretty. With love and hugs Shirleyxx

Sarpreet said...

great christmas boxes - blogger usually autosaves a copy of what you wrote as you go long, so if you click on edit posts - and your posts should be there, ones not published will have the draft wording next to it. Sounds like you had a really busy day

These are cute, I may give them a go myself, although I'll probably eat all the sweets, lol. xx

They are really cute and would be an amazing gift with some really special choccies inside them. Look very posh like they have come from a boutique.

Lots of love
