Three Little Boxes for Simon Says



Well I think this is the first time ever that I have posted anything other than a card on my blog and certainly nothing like this, the theme for Simon Says Challenge is anything but a card. These are called truffle boxes and decided to make three in a Christmas theme. The backing papers are Bearlymine the blue and green boxes have Poinsettia's from Fred She Said but the red box has the Digital Poinsettia from Sue at McMahon Five Designs (logo in side bar). I used a template that I downloaded some time ago then passed it through the printer to get the pattern then cut them out with my craft knife. I then put them together which was so easy and I thoroughly enjoyed it and was so pleased with them. I have added stickles and ribbons. I will be making more for Christmas and already my mum wants several lol. Hugs to all.

aw..These are lovely, they remind me of something....
"Little boxes on the hillside,
Little boxes made of ticky-tacky,
Little boxes, little boxes,
Little boxes, all the same.
There's a green one and a pink one
And a blue one and a yellow one
And they're all made out of ticky-tacky
And they all look just the same."
Really fabby! Hope you sang along....
