JAI 246 Just add giving
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas day spending it with family and friends enjoying some yummy food and company! We were lucky enough to do that :) We have now moved on to the recovery period which involves more eating and spending time with the kids helping them work out, construct, read etc their Christmas presents. It's a time of year I enjoy very much!
We have one final challenge for you all this year at Just Add Ink and it's to Just Add Giving a lovely idea proposed by Mae, a former DT member. We'd really like to see what you made as special gifts for people in your life to thank them for their love, support, friendship and company.
As the Just Add Ink team will be taking a little summer break till January 23rd this won't be a judged challenge - but we encourage you to share you wonderful projects with other crafters and link up your projects.
I have a fairly simple little project for you today - but then that's what you need in the lead up to Christmas!
A close up
I made quite a few of these delightful little boxes, but kept it fun and fresh for me by making them in a whole range of different colour ways. I was quite astonished with how much chocolate you could actually fit into these! The tag is almost bigger than the boxes but I was still having so much fun playing with my Festival of Trees set and punch that I just had to dress up the boxes.
For a little time on my part and a whole lot of inky fun I also had the added bonus of making people smile when they received one of these!
Go check out what the rest of the DT made as special gifts this year and please do join us in sharing what you made this year!
Happy New Year to you all and I'll see you in 2015 with the Just Add Ink's annual blog hop challenge on January 23rd.
