Christmas gift box

Happy Weekend Everyone!

I've been busy making a few Christmas cards yesterday.  Some of my co-workers are organizing a raffle for the benefit of a local organization.  So I decided to make a little something for the basket.  I love the Paper Crafts Magazine and the Nov/Dec issue is fabulous!  I also got inspiration from the November issue of CardMaker Magazine.  Here are the cards I've made.

These first cards are inspired by a set featured in CardMaker Magazine.  They featured a card, a gift bag and candy box.  I really liked the way they used the red and gold together.   Since I had the same color in paper and the same embossing plate, I made a red/gold and a green/silver. 

The next 2 cards were inspired by a card in the Paper Crafts Magazine.  I loved the way they did the tree.  So I tried it too!  I really like the way it turned out!

This next card, I actually made last year.  I made it with my Cricut.  Thought I would also include it in the gift box.

For the top of the box, which I will be tying it up with a beautiful, luscious silver with gold accent ribbon, I made this mini tag to attach to it.   

Here is the set together.

Until next time,
Have a great weekend!
