Reindeer boxes

Hello again!

Back with more projects today :)
Thank you so much for the lovely comments yesterday - I really appreciate them :)
My back is improving, so much so that I'm back to my normal level of medication (I have an ongoing back problem from a car accident). I hope to be crafting again soon.  Helen - you would never regret buying a Silhouette Cameo - it's an amazing machine!

I made this little treat box (with the Cameo) for my father in law from the children.  He loves wine gums so we filled a cello bag and tied it with christmas twine.  The cutting file is from Silhouette's online store.  I added gingham ribbon around the bottom and two adhesive pearls for his eyes.

Warning! They can be addictive....I made four more for my nephews using googly eyes this time and bow ties.

We usually give them money for Christmas so I made mini envelopes to put it in and attached them to the back of the boxes.  I downloaded Echo Park christmas paper and cut them out using the print and cut feature in the Cameo.

I got the idea for this tic tac box here and downloaded the poem to add to the back of the packet.  I measured the tic tac box and designed the file in Silhouette Studio, cutting out the circle in the snowman and the background card to match - a circle punch would work just as well. The snowman image is from here.

I only added the poem to the ones I gave to family just in case anyone would be offended!

 I found the tutorial for this lovely lip balm holder here.
To save time cutting and scoring I made a file in Silhouette Studio which did all the hard work for me :)

This year Lydia's form class decided (at the last minute) to do secret santa and this is what she gave. Lip balm, tic tacs, Paperchase pen and tissues.

I made some fabric and felt Christmas tree decorations 

 and this is the bag I put them in. 
The paper is Echo Park and the bag was cut out with the Cameo, I think I bought the file from Silhouette online.

That's it for today!  I still have more but I'll save it for tomorrow :)
I've got a little time to spare so I'm off now to see your blogs.

Thank you for visiting today

Hi Sarah. So sorry to hear your back's flared up again. Thank goodness you'd got most of your crafting done already. The projects you're showing here and in yesterday's post are absolutely awesome - and I certainly don't use that word very often! What brilliant ideas and how perfectly made they all are. I'll be in touch soon too - take care! Vicky x
