I haven't been blogging much lately, but I have been crafting. I am finding with the shorter days and lack of sunlight it's really difficult to get decent pictures lately, but I wanted to make sure I got this project posted. I made two of these earlier this week, one for my son (13) and one for my nephew (4). I had a lot of fun and would like to do more of these in the future. I have a 9 month old nephew who will eventually get one and a 42 year old husband who has also expressed interest :).
I used some Basic Grey pp I got on clearance after last Christmas and various Christmas stamps and embellishments from my stash. The box is by Karen Foster and is nice, stiff paper covered chipboard. I am hoping these last the boys for a long time.
Each drawer contains a candy or chocolate of some sort. I also slipped $1 and $2 coins in a few boxes, as well as a bill on the 19th as an extra treat for Jake on his birthday. I have always tried to keep Christmas and Jake's birthday very distinct but he suckered us into buying his b-day present early this year (skis), which is just as well as he has used them a dozen times already this season.
Thanks for visiting!
