Cameo Boxes

Good evening to all my lovely friends and  followers. I hope you are all ready for Christmas its not long now. I'm just about there and I have to be as we are going to a Wedding on Monday not home till Tuesday afternoon. I'm icing my cake tomorrow and still some parcels to wrap.
My post today is some boxes I made for my girlfriends and I gave them to them yesterday at our Christmas lunch . We had a lovely afternoon at Wynyard  Hall and I just love making something to give to them they are very special friends.
So these are the three boxes I made they are all the same. I hope you like them my friends certainly
did.

The Box




The Lid



All Three Boxes




Box Recipe

Wooden Boxes from The Works
Tim Holtz white card
Lace Whitby Crafts
Pearl flower String Whitby Crafts and The Hobby House
Cheesecloth Ribbon from my stash
Cameos Wild Orchid Crafts (sadly they no longer stock them)
Flat back pearl string Hobby Craft.
Marianne die tinys flower one trimmed to fit.

I put a small Nottingham lace lavender bag inside each box so when it was opened the wood would give the scent of lavender.
I'll be back before Christmas and may even have a wedding photo to show you along with the photo of the Wedding Stationery. I think I'll be really proud when I see everyone in the church on Monday with my Order of Service.
Enjoy the last few days before Christmas and please take time to relax hugs Carole.x
I'm entering my boxes into Dragon fly Dreams Challenge Vintage
