Ornament Gift Boxes

I'm having so much fun making these 2"X2" ornaments gift boxes! I'm making these for the Christmas tree I put in my craft room.
 
 Both pieces of cardstock are 6"X6"
Score both pieces of paper at 2" and 4", turn,
then score again at 2" and 4"
Cut corner squares to the fold, turn and repeat
on all four corners Do the same on the top part of
the box. I cut some of the tab off, but it's really
not necessary! LOL!!
Tape or glue all your tabs and fold until you have a top and bottom box.
Put together both boxes....
... and decorate!! :) Don't forget to add a string if you want
to hang it on your Christmas tree!! :)

Small Haul

Made a trip to JoAnn's today since I had a coupon for 60% off one regular priced item. I used it for the Fiskars paper cutter. It was $24.00 - 60% = $9.00!! YAY!! I HAD to get the Indianapolis Colts ribbon. I live in Indiana and go to a lot of the games... so, I'm sure I'll use it on a scrapbooking layout! :)

Happy November!!

WOW!! I can not believe it is November ALREADY!! The year has flown by for me!! November is one of my favorite months. For one, it's my birthday month :) and two, it's a month to reflect on all of the blessing during the past year! I've had so many... a new daughter-in-law, a new grandson and we had a house built! I am truly blessed!! Here's one of my favorite quotes...

"Life is not about receiving at all times; it is a combination of being thankful for what you have as blessings and sharing those blessings with others who need a little fraction of what you have!" - Catherine Pulsifer

Hugs, Julie
