With only 5 Days to go I am still in full Christmas mode, making gifts, tags, boxes, cards and I even went to spotlight today and bought some food dye so I can make some Christmassy coloured sweet stuffs soon!!
You did see a sneak peak of the box I am showing you today on Saturday in this post.
But here today I have the close up version. Firstly one of my close friends is a smoker and she has been wanting one of those long cigarette holders you see in the old black and white movies, well when I was out shopping the other night I was passing a tobacconist and thought hmm I wonder. I went in and asked and yes they had one. (sorry no photo, it’s already wrapped)
You get the picture though right? Well it only came in plastic so I didn’t want to wrap it like that, so I made a box.
Thanks to this old website for the posted tutorial way back in 2008, I made this beatiful box with red papers as it’s her favourite colour.
Doesn’t the paper scream Christmas and make your eyes go funny looking at it.
So this is the box almost complete, looking good so far.
So wah lah one completed pen box, which is the perfect size for the cigarette holder, it’s about 8” x 1" 1/2” and the lid just slides off and on. I even made another gift tag, similar to my purple tags to attach to the box. Now I just hope she likes it.
So I have one more present to make and it’s already half done, just waiting on the paint to dry, then tomorrow shortbread and if I get time oreo truffles, mmmmmmmm yummy.
Until then Happy Crafting.
