Christmas Preparations on-going - Gift boxes and place setting in one!!!

Hello My dears,  As promised here is another stage of my Christmas preparations. 

I had loads of pretty Christmas paper left from last year so thought I'd use it up and make a batch of these sweet half pint gift milk cartons.  These are going to be sitting on my Daughter Dinner Table for the guest wee gift surprises

The little Doohickey Christmas tag die will have their names added when filled but more to the point they will also be used as 
the Table place settings.  Saving me a lot more work!!!

I also have a sweet crafty friend who is having a Christmas Fete on December 14th to raise money for Charity so I'm making her half a dozen of the boxes to sell. 

The picture above are the boxes for the Ladies/Girls gifts 

and the picture below are for the Men/Boys

Here they are in all their Glory 
In order to make it easy to get at the gifts I painted the black metal paper clips white and then added snowtex gluing them to the flaps. 

 I've used Magnolia Mini images from the Winter Wonderland 2013 Collection and coloured them with Flex-markers and Derwent soft pencils for shading.

You will find a list of my images and dies used with links at the bottom of my post.

That's all for me for now my dears, I hope you all have a wonderful day and an even craftier Weekend.
