A Christmas gift box with tag

 I hate to admit it, but the C word is coming up fast, and so I have been thinking about my cards and gifts and panicking slightly...

This is the gift box I have come up with for the girls in work - very easy to make, just two sheets of 8 x 8 card with embellishments largely bought ones for speed.

Originally, I was going with the battery operated candle as in the picture, but am now going to put inside the box a mug, with a sachet of hot chocolate and a small poly bag of mini marshmallows.

The focal point of the box though, is the neat tag with my very favourite snowpeople image stamped on it - not sure where it's from (I'm so bad at keeping my records!) - which I coloured with my trusty promarkers and wink of stella clear pen.

Despite the fact I am a wee bit disappointed in the cardstock (as I noticed now that there is bleeding from the hat) I am entering this tag into the challenge this time at

I love promarkers - it's all about tags


  1. Oh, I love this Jackie! The mug with hot chocolate is a great idea! Your snowmen are so sweet and your poinsettia is a gorgeous embellishment! hugs :)
