Hope you have all had a good christmas. We have had a very busy time. There were 10 of us for the day on Christmas Day and then on Boxing Day my Sister, Brother-in-law and two Nephews came to stay for a couple of days. We have had a lovely time with family and been totally spoilt with presents. But back to reality tomorrow as work beckons. Still, I am only in on Monday and Tuesday and then have Wednesday and Thursday off so can't complain.
Today I thought I would share the cracker boxes I made everyone for the table on Christmas Day. Since my two girls have grown up I do find shop bought crackers a bit of a waste of money. So this year I made everyone their own little cracker box and put a personalised present in them for everyone. They looked lovely on the table and everyone really enjoyed their little gift. I even bought some little party hats and printed out some cracker jokes.
I used my hougie board for all the scoring once I had worked out the measurements. Some christmassy papers from my stash decorated the outside. I stamped the sentiment and added some faux stitching before mounting onto a die cut circle. Some pearls around the top, a name tag and ribbon for the bow finished the boxes.
Here is another view:
I liked these so much that I made another 14 and put sweets in them for all of my work colleagues. It was my way of saying thank you for making me feel so welcome in my new job.
Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
