Sharing an 'Oldie' on Friday

Hi Crafters,

I haven't joined in with Erika at Snappy Crafts for a few weeks now so thought I had better find an old craft project to share today and join in the fun.


This was a sweet little Christmas Gift Box that I made a few years ago when I first owned my Silhouette Cameo cutting machine. It was to gift wrap some earrings and looked so cute being only 10 cm x 7 cm. The organza bow is the closure and passes through the layers of the flap securing it tightly shut.

It has been a lovely, bright day here but quite chilly and I'm sure the heating will have to on this evening, {groan} winter is on it's way, but we are forecast a few more brighter days this weekend so I will make the most of it.
Hope everyone is ok and I'll see you again soon.

Lorraine

This is just adorable Lorraine, makes the gift look even cuter. We still have a bit of heat in the air yet but the nights are getting dark so quickly!!

This is so adorable, Lorraine! I fell in love with this cut file when I first got my Cameo, too... it's such a sweet way to bestow a heartfelt gift. Santa couldn't be more precious and I love your ribbon choice. Lovely oldie to share with us. :o) Have a wonderful day!

Hugs and blessings,
Karen

Lorraine, this is just darling! I don't make gift bags or boxes (no skills - and my cameo is gathering dust!) This gift bag is so sweet that I'd forget to look inside for a gift! I'm sure it was very happily received by whomever was lucky enough to have their name on it! TFS & have a good wkend. Hugs

Oh, this is really pretty. Such a clever and fun idea. I love this box.
It's getting colder here too. The other day we turned the heating on, but we didn't have to do this yesterday or today. But I think that next week we'll have to do it again, because they are saying temperatures will drop again.
Hugs! xx
