Christmas in July

July 27, 2021

My husband and I recently spent three days in Stanthorpe recently to celebrate Christmas in July with the Fortitude Caravan Club. We had a lovely time although it was really cold and Friday was wet too. On Saturday afternoon we had a Secret Santa gift giving session and I thought I would share with you how I presented our gifts. The first gift was two beautiful Christmas Tree decorations made by my Grandson Ethan.

They are made from Camphor Laurel wood and smell devine. I created the box base and lid from Basic White 12″ x 12″ card. The box was 13cm x 10cm and 8cm deep. The second box is also created from Basic White card and is slightly smaller being 10cm x 10cm and 5cm deep. This box held some chocolates and a Bunnings Gift Voucher.

My hubby loves Bunnings Gift Vouchers and wanted to steal this present back! To decorate the box lids I added panels of the Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper. I punched two sides of the lids using the Double Oval Punch to give a finger grip to remove the lid. I cut Basic White card using one of the Encircled in Beauty Dies and attached it to Gold Foil card cut using the same dies before attaching the panel to the lid. I cut the flower petals from Cherry Cobbler card using the Poinsettia Dies.

I added a slight sponging of Cherry Cobbler ink around the edges of the flowers before attaching them together. The flower is attached to the centre of the dies on the lid of the box with dimensionals underneath the outer part of the petals and glue dots in the centre to give it a little dimension. I cut Shaded Spruce card using another of the Poinsettia Dies, which I attached on either side of the flower. Lastly I added three Basic Rhinestones to the centre of the flower because you have to have bling.

I hope whoever received the gifts loves them as much as I do.

Bye for now,
