Cracker Boxes

Good morning and another extremely cold one.  It is certainly winter now isn't it? I didn't like waking up to the snow yesterday and it continued snowing most of the day but by late evening it was turning to rain thank goodness.

I realised the other day that I hadn't shown these cracker boxes so I have remedied that now.  We had some friends over for lunch at New Year and I did these as table decorations/gifts.  I filled the base with chocolates and in the top lid/box I put a couple of little glass Christmas tree ornaments already for next year. They seemed to go down very well with our guests.


My Project


main gift box


lid which is also a gift box

Recipe
Ivory pearlescent card - Crafters Companion
gold mirri card - craft shop in Evesham
ribbon and gems - stash
snowflake dies - SB Create A Flake 4 and 5

These little boxes look so effective and as the main box is 3.25 x 3.75 inches approximately  it can hold a decent sized gift. Overall the cracker box stands 5.25 inches tall and looks really great on the table.

Well that's it from me today and I am just off to the dentist for an early appointment, but only for a check up fortunately.

Hope you are all well.

  3. These look wonderful Christine. We had a bit of the white stuff on Friday but it's gone now thank goodness, hope that was it for the winter, maybe I'm being a little optimistic.

  6. Hi Christine,
    trying to play catch up with my comments.
    Started last night but got my RLS and had to abandon the idea, as it drives me insane while trying to type.
    Love your fab cracker boxes.
    I have not seen this style of box before, but they are so perfect for guests as you say.
    Love your fab embellishments on them too.
    Love and biggest hugs from my house to yours.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
