Some more Christmas goodies

Hello lovely readers ~

Just a few really quick pics for you today.

Some little boxes of choccies for the people I work with. There are many more of these boxes but I think you get the picture :o) I stuck with traditional colours except for one - that Melon Mambo box is for one of the younger girls in the office, she's a delight, always smiling and happy and just a little bit funky too!

Some chocolate sliders - to fit the small Lindt bar perfectly. Tutorial over at Petronela's Keepstamping blog here. I've used Marina Mist, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla each with coordinating Taffeta ribbons.

A couple of gift boxes containing a set of cards and matching envelopes. The boxes are all in one with a flip top lid, like the one I showed you here. These are for the ladies in the front office at school. They're always smiling and so helpful to the kids who are constantly passing their desks for one reason or another!

Box in a bag, or bag in a box - not sure what these are called. Mine don't follow a tute or template - I made them up as I went along by making a shallow base first and wrapping the c/s around it. The top of the little bags uses the Christmas Ornament punch and that idea I did get from Becky Roberts - she comes up with the best stuff! I used some of the now retired Baja Breeze dsp and tied the little bows around the 'handle' using the Real Red 1/8" Taffeta ribbon.

That 'C' is for Gorgeous Kid and has his absolute fave chocolate Lindt balls inside. I cut the 'C' using the Timeless Type Junior Alphabet die and glittered it up with a lovely deep red from my stash.

This little gift card holder contains a very yummy gift voucher - I'll have to come back and tell you about that after Christmas. I can't be too sure the recipient doesn't read my blog from time to time so best to be on the safe side. Unfortunately on the day I took this pic the weather was a little dull and so you can't see the true Cherry Cobbler/Old Olive colours.

That's it from me, I'll be back again soon I'm sure. Enjoy your day!
