Box it Up!!!!

Hi to all of you in blog land today
I mentioned a little while ago that I had given my boss a musical mug for a Xmas treat, and that I had made a box for this to sit in.

Here is the little number that I created, nothing too exciting and I apologise for the dark photo too, was heaving it down outside so the natural light was not too good, thank heavens for my day light lamp
I used some parcel fancy ribbons from Lidl's to decorate the box along with some vintage papers and a nestie tag and little verse from Grimsby Crafts

Just wanted to also say thank you for the wonderful comments that all my fabulous visitors leave, I love them all THANK  YOU!!!

Don't think this will go into many challenges but lets see
Anything Goes Challenge - Anything but a Card optional tag
My Time to Craft - Vintage Christmas
Top Tip
When gluing a box together if you use the old style wooden pegs, you can get on with other things, also the talc powder on the tan embossing matt prevents papers sticking to them through the grand calliber and also the talc helps the dies come out of Marianne dies on the older style dies without the push out holes.

think that is about me
enjoy the rest of your day
