Quick make

Morning all, even though it's rapidly approaching lunch time.
Still got some housework to finish off and have the hairdressers this afternoon, as well as a quick run to Asda for a few bits and bobs. Before I start on all that though, I though I'd share a picture of a wee quick make gift box. The box design was taken from the new Hougie Project Booklet and was obviously scored using bright green Hougie Board... lol... you can actually get 3 of these boxes from just 1 sheet of A4 card.
For my box... I simply followed the instructions in the booklet using basic white cardstock, then inked one of my 'Words Like Honey' stamps in black and stamped all over the card... finished off by punching some holes and threading my ribbon through.
I'm actually going to make a pile of these for my friend... she has 2 small children who love their advent calenders, but as a change this year I thought it would be nice to fill these little boxes with some goodies and hang them on the christmas tree... that way the children will have to search the tree to find the correct numbered box before they can have their goody... it will also be nicer for them to open a gift box then just push a door on a basic advent calender.
Right... off to get organised now and will pop back a little later with something else.. hubby has stolen my camera at the moment so only way I can post any other pictures is via my phone.. typical eh!
Happy crafting and keep smiling
