The box has been made with the wonderfully rich Cherry Cobbler card stock and I stamped the panel that sits on top of the box with my lovely Autumn Days stamp set. There's a little bit of gold embossing too although it's not easy to see it in the photo - conditions are dreadful for photography here today!
The top panel is attached to the lid with dimensionals so a ribbon can pass under it and tie to one side. I've used the divine Cherry Cobbler seam binding - I can't get over the bows you can make with this! (I'm speaking as someone who can't tie a bow to save my life!) The finger indents in the lid were cut with my 3/4" circle punch.
And inside, nestling on a raised insert? Surely every crafter's idea of heaven... a voucher for a Stampin' Up shopping spree! I can make the voucher in any amount and you get the box for free - I can even personalise it for you! I bet you know someone who would love one of these - and if you'd like to be opening one yourself on Christmas day, it might be an idea to start hinting wildly now!

Both of my boys were off school today, one with a dreadful cold, the other with a hacking cough. It's dark, wet, windy and altogether miserable outside and, frankly, hibernation is beginning to look like an attractive prospect...
But it's Three Minute Thursday here tomorrow so, instead of curling up in a nest of warm blankets and sleeping the winter away, I'll be back with a super-fast Christmas card! Do pop in if you have a minute!
