Simple gift

If you are looking for the STAMFAIRY BLOGHOP it is HERE   

Hello Eveyone,

Cloudy and  so cool today, will make my work so much easier, yesterday we shot up to 26o C...and that I dont like...well...not too bad really, but it was sticky heat..

My Christmas tree is up, lights on [3 sets] all his baubles and bling...looked lovely the first night, and then....poof...all the lights went out...now it is a dark sad looking thing, and I will have to strip it to get the lights going again..ah! well..you get what you pay for...that goes for card stock too..

I ran out of the white cardstock that I like to use for my card bases and was told not till after Christmas will anymore... if at all,...will be availible, so I  bought a substitute and it is awful...as soon as glue touches it, it wrinkles up....so here is a wrinkled card to share..lol..


It doesn't look too bad in the photos, so thats good...this is the Stampfairy gift box image, blown up big...and paper pieced and glittered.






This is the inside with the pocket....




Here is the little tag that comes out with a freebie very cute image from Spyder [Lyn]



And...the gift card attached in the back...with removable tape.

I actually made this 3 times...and botched everyone, I nearly gave up as this was botched too, I was supposed to leave the top of the box open,to slide the tag down inside the box  but  glued it down everytime...must have been more tired than I thought, but never mind, it is made and ready to enter a challenge at C R A F T challenge   [Christmas present]...

Have my work Christmas party tonight, so that should be fun...all that yummy food and a few wines..

Off the get ready for work, thanks for dropping in and all the fabulous comments you leave...will see you again tomorrow..

Luv CHRISSYxx

this looks amazing, love the gift box! Try a drier adhesive it shouldn't wrinkle so much, double sided tape or similar will work!
