Little Boxes, made of ticky tacky....

I hope you've all had a lovely time over the Christmas holidays catching up with friends and family. Thought I'd add  the finished boxes I made. The first one I did was an idea I had for a 'gift wrapped' challenge that I made here, which I turned into a Christmas Tree Decoration with chocolate coins inside, then that gave me the idea to make more and turn them into place setting name thingies (with little chocolate treats inside) 
They went down a treat...Once opened they could read..."Just for you.....some reindeer pooh!"
Inspite of that, everyone took theirs home. Hopefully to add to their own trees!
It's just a strip if card actually taken from a blank card and folded over two more times so it has a back, bottom and a front. 
The front was cut a little shorter, then I've added a circle where a small Velcro sticky patch was fixed on to keep the little box closed. They're quite small, so arn't too heavy for the Christmas tree, if used as hangings.
Most of what I used was scraps of paper left over from other projects. Easy! (although I still didn't finish them until the day I needed them!) Even the thin ribbons came off jumpers and tops. (The ribbons inside the garment to help keep them from falling off the hangers ...yes, most of my clothes fall off the hangers now, but never mind!)
 I was going to add a little Bugaboo image as I did on the very first one, but ran out of time, so filled the space with the names instead. I'm thinking now, they'd be lovely in silver or gold or colour co-ordinated  with a wedding theme too.
The freebie font I've used I've linked before. It comes in 'hollow' and' thin' and is called Anjelila Rose. Download them all HERE or just google the name . That's it! Thank you for stopping by. Sorry there's not been much 'blogging' going on, but well, other 'stuff' gets in the way!  Hope to add this (if I can find the time) to some ...
