MMCS DT- Gift boxes and bags

Hello my lovelies... so pleased to see you!
 I know we are all knee deep in preparations, so I am really grateful that you made a little time to visit me today
Its time to create those gift boxes and bags this week over at My Mum's Craft shop.... and  this  was made in a jiffy!!!

ok, so relatively simple... just an A4, scored 2" in all the way round, and gently fold those scores. Then Cut once at each side 2" in, to create a tab. Glue the tab and fold in. voila!!! 

 Then I created this winter scene, using Santa's Workshop papers, and my spellbinders border one die to create the snowy hill. I distressed and added picket white paint, and lots of glamour dust.
I love these Freezy Fellas, and they all made a super quick colour up... I fussy cut them out and 3d'd them on. I finished with Baker's Twine and a sentiment from the stamp set.
The biggest job was take the pics...Hahaha!
Pop over and get out the rest of the clever gifting ideas from the rest of the DT girlies.
