Christmas Boxes

Good Morning to all my lovely friends and  followers. I hope you are all coping with the Christmas preparations. I'm just about there have a couple of last minute food things to  get and  some wrapping then I'm done.
Todays post is of some Christmas Boxes I made a few weeks ago. I couldn't post them until now as they were for some of my friends my husband calls the Golden Girls and they do sometimes look at my blog. I was out yesterday for lunch with them all and  these were the little gifts I took. We all take something small with our cards to share over lunch. We had a great afternoon at Wynyard Hall so festive and a beautiful pianist played the whole time we were there, the food was excellent as it always is there. Fantastic service, staff, and great company with my lovely friends.

These are the boxes. I bought the templates from Whichcraft at the GNPE and decorated them with Pion papers. They came out really well and I filled them with some sweeties and a small gift.
