Another Xmas Prezzie!

Well hello all you wonderfully talented crafters

I have been putting this box together and was stuck as to how to decorate it so this is how it ended.  I followed a tutorial on You Tube for the box itself.  

I used chipboard, coredinations, distress ink and dies as the decoration.  I found some wooden beads in my stash so used distress ink on them and they suddenly transformed into feet lol.  

I made the flower from a tutorial I found on Redannes blog via May's blog, one of my Eclectic DT's.  Gosh that was a mouthful or fingerful lol.  The leaves are from a spellbinder die.  I used an enormous amount of glossy accents. Anyway I kept this simple as the person receiving this is not overly fussy for lots of embellishments.







I thought I would include the flowers I made here.... in case you are interested lol...





Well thats it from me as need to get to bed lol.....

    (I loved reading how you can't wait to get home and settle at your desk with your laptop and TV - sounds like someone else I know!).
