Going For a Thong

Hello and welcome.  We had a bit of sunshine today.  Hurray.  It made the snow look glisteningly lovely.  Still windy enough to stop you in your tracks now and again.  By mid-afternoon we were having a few blizzards but the sun was lovely while it lasted.  Just a quick post to catch up with the Swirlydoos challenge.

The recipe today is a box, triangles, red, green, gold and merry Christmas.  I made a triangular box as per the supplied template.  Check out the link below if you want this one.  These are very easy and you can cut two from an A4 sheet if you are careful.  I used double sided paper with a holly design.  So that's a box, triangles, red and green.  Going great

I decided to keep it simple.  I added a gold cord as a hanger.  The Merry Christmas is a magazine freebie backed with some gold card.  I think it gives a bit of a Vintage feel.  The stars were cut using Spellbinders Star 5 and the large on embossed using Sizzix Star, Primitive #2 embossing folder.

This box isn't very big.  Maybe a gift box for some jewelry or some sweets.  Or maybe just hang them as ornaments.  Thanks for dropping by.  Back soon with more Christmas cheer.......


  1. Two things come immediately to mind here, Gail! First, what a great ornament this would make on a tree! Next, of course, the obvious! Is there cheesecake in there? That's all I want to know! OK, love your project. Will check out that template, too!
