Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) end of Year Challenge - Anything but a Card

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

When you read this blog post I will be in Brighton for the last of the Bootleg Beatles Christmas Concerts. It is a lovely thing to do before Christmas with our special friends.

As the title suggests this is the end of year challenge for the Moving Along with the Times (MAWTT) and the theme is Anything but a Card. Some of the design team are offering prizes. This time we are being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons

I made some gift boxes filled with foil covered sweets to help someone with a fund raising coffee morning. She told me that on the day she raised £560. 

If you love ribbon you will love the Crafty Ribbons website. Click on the logo and you will be taken there. 

This shows the top of the box with the Poinsettia and the ivy. I used the stamps and matching dies from John Next Door to make the Poinsettias. 

I used acetate behind one of the cut panels so that you can see the contents. 

This is the prize I am offering. There is a little bit of everything. 

I need to make some more of these boxes to hold table presents. I am sure all the jobs will get done in time. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Happy Crafting

Am very interested in making this box. Where did you get the pattern/die or whatever you had to cut out the sides? Please and Thank You for any information. Hope you had a good Christmas.

Hi Unknown I have no idea if you will see this. I used the Opera Box dies set designed by John Next Door for Crafts Too. The Art of Crafts shop in Farnborough usually have good stocks of his products and you can order online. Happy New Year. Hugs Jackie
