Christmas Gifts

This is the Christmas gift I made my sister this year. I had a magnetic box that was covered in paper I didn't really like. (It was hideous actually!) So I grabbed my extra sticky tape from Scor-pal and changed the paper... I used wallpaper, my favourite. The very bottom of the box is some of the original paper. 

 I borrowed a die cut from Whimsy Stamps that I adore, its so delicate, and added a flower to the top of the box.
The sentiment on the front suits my sister so perfectly!
Filled it with cards.

And added three ornaments I made. I love cross-stitching and these are made on foil paper. They're thick like a really good cardstock. They take a while to make because I can't sew like regular cross-stitching but I don't have to frame them either, sweet!

 Merry Christmas Everyone!
