So I love to decorate EVERYTHING!!! Windows, door knobs, cabinet knobs, lamp switches, etc. Like I said everything and these little boxes do the trick and don't cost a fortune.
At first I was going to give these out for gifts but then the recipient couldn't use it for long. So I decided to just hand them out whenever I saw someone I wanted to give a little gift to.
The red one is 2.75 x 2.75 and made with the box maker by We R Memory Keepers. I used an old set of Sizzix dies for letters to spell HO using the positive part of the cut on all 4 sides. Guess the green on the red box doesn't show up so well so I'm making a few more that pop out more. The 3 box strand is a template for a 2x2x2" box with jute strung through on a diagonal with a jingle bell between each box. Once again I used the positive cutting of the letters to embellish all 4 sides to spell out JOY. The twine is strung through the little opening between the box and the lid as your closing it. I started with the top loop being weaved through the back left corner of the lid as your closing it , pulling the tail end through the box and coming out the right front opening of the bottom of the lid. Hope I didn't totally confuse you. Then repeat for all additional boxes. (Top left back, bottom left front) The third on I strung straight with 3 wooden beads between box and this time used the negative cutting of the letters to spell NOEL. I punched tiny holes in the middle of both the top and bottom lids and strung them together that way. I have probably made at least 20 of these so far with various words.
Well now I really need to get on with these scene cards so til next time............
