Circular Christmas Box for Chocs

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

We are back from our cruise. It was so lovely to be away in a holiday bubble. We got back last Friday and on Saturday I had a call about my mum who had taken a turn for the worse. We visited on Sunday and all seemed fine but the care package might need to be increased. I am in talks with the Care Agency to try and work out what is best. Today I am helping at the first of two Felting Workshops this week.

Before we went away I challenged myself to make a circular box.I wanted to use  dies that I had from the Heart Box die set from the John Next Door range. I did watch a video on how John Made the Heart box and I applied this new knowledge to a circular box.

I used a lot of the Double Pierced Circle dies from Creative Expressions to make this box. They are my go to circle dies. I also used the Winter Trees die set and the Deer Family die set all from Creative Expressions. 

Here you can see the Washi Tape around the edge of the box. The paper I used came from the John Lockwood Box Magazine. 

The lid fits nicely on the box. 

It does remind me of a Cheesy Triangles box. I am sure some chocs will fit just fine. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Enjoy the rest of the week. I will be mostly sorting out things for Christmas. 

Happy Crafting

Gorgeous box, love everything about it, especially the washi tape around the edge. At first, I thought all those houses had been stamped. What a brilliant idea. Michelle x
