Box Heaven!

Hello friends
Firstly a message to Patricia...you can now put up your Christmas tree!
I recall Patricia saying that she had to wait after her birthday, belated birthday wishes for yesterday!
Crafty offering today is another little table favour box today, Square Bracket Edge box but this 
time the lid is featuring Bitty Blossoms cut from felt.
It may be a little too girlie for my Dad but I suspect he will like what is inside! 
(yummy chocolate!)
I feel it is time for a ....cat!
Let me introduce you to Riley who lives with Sue.
Sue explains he is called Riley because he has the life of Riley!!
 This old fellow is now 17 1/2 years old and getting very wobbly on his feet.
I personally think he looks very regal sitting by the fire. 
A treat is on its way to you Riley.
As mentioned before, Pet Gallery is ongoing so feel free to send your pet pics along.
I've got a couple of 'festive pets' to share in time for Christmas so keep your eyes open.
Take care friends - I'm back tomorrow for that quite popular die thing I do...oh yes.
Friday Die Day!

Morning Christine
Another gorgeous box and I'm sure your Dad will love it and it's content on Christmas Day! Love the flowers too.

Seeing all your lovely boxes and now having the die on my 'must have' list, I have looked on the web, and think I might not be able to invest in one just yet as it won't fit through my Cuttlebug :-( That's a sure way of saving some pennies for a while!

Hope you have a lovely day, looking forward to tomorrow's FDD already!

Hi Christine. Beautiful box. Love the felt flowers. Bought some different felt yesterday so going to have another go.

Riley looks such a lovely cat, certainly doesn't look his age. That's over 100 years old in human years. Three of my cats are Tabby and I just love the markings.

Morning Christine,
Another lovely box, I thought that this was a great idea so I'm going to copy it hope you don't mind.
Not a cat person myself but Riley does look very proud of himself.
Have a good day.

Morning Christine, Thank you so much for the Birthday greetings. I gave in, and put the lights and tree up last weekend, it is the first year that I have done it before my Birthday, but I was itching to do it. The outside has a Christmas tree in a pot and that has lights on it too, it looks gorgeous outside at night.
I absolutely love your gift boxes, and your Dad will love it.
Looking forward to tomorrow's die day.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Hello Christine, once again, I just love the box and the flowers. I have this die as you know and recently made six advent calendars!!!! After cutting and making 100 boxes, I was glad to see the back of the die set but having seen your lovely favour boxes, I'm wanting to have another play! Just need to try and find some decent felt to make my flowers look as lovely as yours.

The box is so pretty with the gorgeous flowers on the top. Riley is lovely, such cool markings! xx

Carole said...

Hi Christine. I have made some boxes from that die and just love it. Haven't tried the felt flowers yet though, yours look lovely, you are so talented. I have just joined blogging land so I put a link on my blog to your boxes and it works!! - so proud of myself LOL - doesn't take much does it but blogger takes some getting used to!

Sarah said...

The box is lovely...I might make some to take to my brothers on Christmas Day. Thankyou for the idea!
