Quilled Poinsettia Christmas Box

Good morning to all my wonderful followers and  friends and a special welcome this morning to my new follower Teresa thank you so much for becoming one of my followers I hope you enjoy my posts and  continue to visit my blog regularly.
My post today is a quilled box. I made the quilled Poinsettia shapes at the Thursday craft group I go to a few weeks ago and rather than them lying around on my desk I decided to use them and make a Christmas box. I do enjoy quilling but it is time taking but the results are always so pretty.

 I've just got back from a few days in Chester with my friends we had a great time and I'll will post a photo in my next post when I get all the photographs and can pick the nicest one.
I hope you are all enjoying the weekend the weather has been so good ,but today as I've been away I need to do some shopping boring. Then I hope to get some crafting done as I'm a bit behind and have some cards to finish and some design posts to complete.
Enjoy the weekend whatever you have planned and thank you for your fantastic comments on my Xbox card you are such kind and lovely people.
