Gift Box Houses.....

 Morning All, here we are again, it's Friday, another week nearly over and that much closer to Christmas LOL !!!!

With that thought in are two little gift box houses that i have made, but not filled or decorated.

The template and idea came from "The Papercraft Collection" magazine that i got free with another magazine.......lots of inspirational ideas in the magazine, some that i have done already.

These gift box houses were designed for tea-bags (herbal/fruit etc), but i think i might put after eight mints in mine....or maybe some scented bags to use wardrobe/drawers etc. 
You can see from the photo above the space inside the box. Once filled, then i can stick the roof down.

I was thinking of maybe making smaller ones - without the opening, for Christmas tree decorations....or even Christmas table gifts- instead of a cracker. You could easily put a small gift inside and personalise each house to suit the person that it's for......lots of ideas to be going on watch this space.

On to other things. My son is coming home for the weekend, as he, his brother and father, are participating in a "Spartan Run"on Saturday, which is a cross country race. Just hope it's not raining otherwise i can forsee a lot of muddy men!!!!

Whatever you are doing, hope you have a good weekend. Thanks for stopping by and "keep crafting" a la strictly......x
