Gift boxes for Christmas

Hello lovely bloggers,

Wow, I get to post a card this morning - how fulfilling is that!!! Lol.
Today I have to take Zeenya shopping for Halloween - she and her friends have decided to just wear neon clothes and do neon make-up! And I have to get three birthday gifts for Aleeza's class mates who celebrated their birthday in school. Aleeza requires a Halloween costume as well but I will see if I can use Zeenya's hand-me-down.


Base card stock - white covered with fancy mat gold gift wrap
Gifts - punched with Ek Success
Embossing on green gift box - CB
Gold gift box - mat gold hand made paper from India
Ribbon - from stash
Holly leaves - punched from similar gift wrap

Hope you like this card as much as I do. I did not know what to do with these punched squares and thought it was a good idea to use them for gift boxes.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Another stunning card - I love the way you made the squares into gift embellishments, and the way you use up gift wrap and sweet wrappers is just fabulous.
Hope you managed to get everything you needed when shopping.
Love, Andrea xx
