I know I’ve been missing in action but this is one the items I’ve worked on sporadically throughout the month during some quiet time. I wanted to make an Advent gift and I had this bead storage box but it only had 24 containers. After thinking about it a little bit, I worked it all out. On the lid I used some garland and sparkly, glittery ribbon and alongside I nestled an elegant sentiment using JustRite Stampers Original Christmas Nested Sentiments, cut with Spellbinders Labels Seventeen. Each of the clear containers uses a sweet border from the JustRite Stampers Original Holiday Cheer Centers and Borders set using an EK Success 1 1/4" punch to cut the border and Spellbinders Standard Circles LG #2 to cut each red or green mat layer. They are the perfect size to cover the top and the bottom of the clear round boxes!!
Inside I sprinkled a little bit of snow and for this gift, the recipient is getting a different pair of earrings in each clear container – 24 all together.
As the recipient takes out each container, she will see that there is another surprise at the bottom that she will get to open on the 25th day. Torture, I know . . .right?!?
There is a large card holding the final surprise that I made using Spellbinders Grand Labels Four. When you peek inside, there is a gift card.
Many of you have asked so I thought I would share a small update. John is resting at home, but we spent several days in the hospital and we returned home Monday night. It was unexpected and I was stuck without internet and a change of clothes. With his condition there’s a lot to manage to get him on the right track. Thankfully, my sweet daughter was to the rescue. Today is a good day, but I know it’s a long journey back to perfect health. One foot in front of the other, I’m strong and willing to look forward. Many of you have written to me sharing similar stories – please know that gives me strength. Thank you for continuing to visit and lift me up. I am immensely blessed and humbled by the kindness of my online friends. More posts coming while I’m home :-)
Please visit these designers’ blogs to see what fabulous JustRite Christmas inspiration they have for you on the hop today!
