Getting ready for Christmas

I had an idea the other day ... how nice it would be to give my female relatives a handmade Christmas gift .... after all I've invested most of my hard-earned into my craft stash so why not use it to make something lovely and totally unique for my mum, stepmum and the hubsters mum! So I decided that I would make each of them a selection of handmade cards and present them in a box, organised with dividers as a very personal gift.

I started by searching for a suitable presentation box that could be embellished and that was large enough to take some large 6" square cards as well as the usual A6 size and that I could also put dividers inside (and that didn't cost a fortune). I found a few cardboard cubes that I thought might work if I cut the lid off and made a proper box lid in the Card Factory that were cheap enough. However today I stumbled across these in a new shop in the Arndale Centre called Hub which is a new one on me

There were two styles available Born to Shop and Forever Friends and I needed three so I bought two Forever Friends and on Born to Shop. Born to Shop defines my mother in law so that's for her. They are both by DoCrafts and were £9.99. Just perfect!

All that remains is for me to find the time to fill them with creations. I'll post each of the cards that goes into them over the run up to Christmas.
