Christmas Box for Challenge at Joan's Gardens


Good morning everyone!  It's Friday and raining cats and dogs here this morning.  It's OK, cause all I got is housework today! 

This morning I'm running a little late because I was frantically trying to finish this little box for the Challenge over at Joan's Gardens!  I made the box last night, but wanted to finish the band to go over the box.  This week the challenge requires:


Well I think I have all the bases covered this week.  Why don't you play along...Joan's challenges are always a lot of fun and they make you think outside the box a little...kinda keeps you on your toes.  While you are visiting Joan's site, look around at her store...she has some wonderful supplies at very reasonable prices and she is a class act when it comes to customer service and shipping!

My box is made with Christmas paper and the band is made using the HCD 713 Lace Border die from Heartfelt Creations.  The flower is from HCPC 3415 Petite Poinsettia PreCut Set.  I added some leaves from a couple of punches and made a stick pin too and then I added a little jingle bell charm.  Not too complicated just a lot of fun. 

I hope I have inspired you to try one of these little boxes...and maybe enter it into Joan's Challenge!  Have a good Friday and a wonderful weekend!  Remember to "Breathe"!
