A Christms Box @ MMM

Firstly congratulations and welcome to Mynette and Val who have joined the Deezine Team, they will be with us starting neaxt week. All entries were fabulous, again a dificult decision. I am sure they will both  show how their different styles will blend in with the team. best wishes to them both.
This week finds us at our last week of the November projects. Thanks Suzi for the lovely selection we have had. We normally ask you to produce any project, whether it be a card, scrapbook page, an altered project anything you want to make in line with the required theme. This week we are being different, and why not?
Suzi thought of a Christmas box, now this can be one you make, an altered one or one you have decorated.
I chose to make one of the really easy small Pizza style boxes. There are quite a few instructions and demos on You Tube, if your interested. It only used one piece of card measuring 6" x 11", a piece of glittery ribbon around the edges, I stamped a poinsettia flower for the lid, but decided I wanted more height. The fancy ribbon is one of those with an inner piece of thread and you pull and pull till it all twists itself up. I'm sure you know what I mean. I look forward to visiting your blogs. It was so heart warming to see so many gorgeous Christmas cards, it certainly won't be an easy task to choose the Top 3.
