Box it up!

Hello again! End of the weekend, but only five weeks of school left, so can't be bad!! We went out to the farm today, very foggy and damp, but lovely to see the family and had a gorgeously scrummy lunch! We chatted about Christmas arrangements, almost hitting the 30 day countdown!!

Right, time for my first contribution to UnstampaBelles!! Our theme this month is 'Box it up' with a twist to do a tutorial! Bear with me!

I have decided to make boxes for Christmas! My thought at the time was to make Advent Calendar boxes, one for each day, all different sizes, to be able to put different treats in each - so far I have made 2!!

I started off with my We R Memory Keepers Gift Box punch board...

...I scored the lines and punched the sides as instructed...

...then I folded...

...I have used double sided tape to secure the sides...

...the boxes are punched with little tags to close the lid...

...and the other flaps...

...I turn the boxes over so that I can decorate...

...and that's it, my lovely boxes!!

What I have used:
Boxes - We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board
Rusted bells - from stash
Holly leaves - Tim Holtz Festive Foliage die
Numbers - Sissix Antiqua Numerals
Papers - First Edition Vintage Noël

I would like to enter the following challenges please:
Altered Eclectics - not a card
Crafting Musketeers - Anything but a card

Thank you for popping over, and I hope that you have been inspired to make a few boxes for Christmas!

Love and light
