Christmas cards

Just thought I'd show you some Christmas cards / presents I made for the girls at work and my crafty friends. 

I used the idea from Crafter's Companion Sara's Ultimate Pro DVD, which showed you how to make the card and adapted it to make a drawer too.  I then decorated the card and made the little boxes for the cards to go into.  I must admit it was a labour of love because the candles I used were the Yankee 'smellie' candles and they were slightly taller and wider than ordinary tea lights.  The adjustments I had to make for both the boxes and the cards nearly drove me mad.  I just couldn't get the hang of it.  I'm still not one hundred per cent satisfied, but I shall try again!

I also made boxes to put the cards in, using Crafters Companion new Boxer Board.

I also made some smaller ones too, together with the boxes which were a bit quicker to make!

From the feedback I've received, everyone was very pleased with them.  I must admit I was pleased with them and will probably make a few more for different occasions.
See you later x
