Christmas Gift Idea

Hello Maja Friends,

1 day left and we will meet Winter and the most busy month of the year December.

It is never too early to start your Christmas preparations


Since I make some sweet gift for my friends and put the chocolate inside the cards, I decided to create simple boxes to hold the chocolate bars

I cut out the images of the lady from the brand new Holiday in the Alpes collection

I like this silver – blue – white palette I chose , it’s more traditional for me since my childhood and reminds me the heavy snow we had many many years ago in Belarus

So I used mostly white embellishments – crochet, flowers and and some silver accents.

and I love the quote

      Thank you, Maryann. Glad to hear you love these colors too. You were lucky to live near the forrest

    These boxes are decorated so beautiful! Do you have the dimensions and measurements for scoring and cutting the boxes?

    • mm Elena Olinevich says:

      Thank you, Nancy. Normally, I don’t keep in mind any special measurements. I’ve taken the paper sheet of A4 size and score in in 3 equal parts and about 1 cm twice at the bottom to create the pocket for the chocolate bar. However, in case to attach the pocket I used some some cardstock leftovers to attach the 3rd part to the background.
      Hope that helps, but I think you can try any size.
