nut gift box

10 more days… I am slowly getting ready but I still have a few gifts I’d like to make.  We’ll see if it happens.  I am enjoying the sounds of Christmas though…Christmas music is my favorite!  I wish I could say that I’m enjoying the smells of Christmas too…but so far not 1 cookie has been baked.  (must remedy this soon).

I still need to take pics of the rest of my cards (hopefully tonight).  In the meantime, here’s a little gift box of nuts I created a few months ago.  I wanted some chestnuts, or an assortment of nuts, to place in the box but at the time I needed to photograph this, our local small town store only had peanuts.  sigh.  

The Laurence Design image, A Victorian Winter, was colored with Promarkers and is perfect for a gift like this… it reminds me of  The Christmas Song (one of my faves).  I can still hear my father singing this when I was a child.

The box and lid are basic box design and super easy to make with a Scor-Pal.  For the base, start with 8 1/4″ x 11 3/4″, scoring each side at 2″.  For the lid, start with 7 7/8″ x 11 1/4″.  Score each side of the lid at 1 3/4″.  Cut and assemble both pieces.  If a window is desired, die cut an opening and attach a piece of acetate before assembly.
