Joyeux Noel

I have been playing in my studio and I had fun putting together this little box of treasures.

I started by covering a small box with Joyeux Noel paper.

I added some puffy stars that I always have fun making along with some white jingle bells,
a crown earring and a fabric piece.

I also put in a white gauze flower pin and some tinsel candy canes.

Next I added one of my stickers that I won several months ago...

A piece of fabric that I had rubber stamped with ice skates and snow flakes

A french inspired tag

I knew it wouldn't be complete without some punched snowflakes and doves

This is my favorite piece...I made this tag and added some swarovski crystals where
the "berries" should be. I will say for future reference...glitter and THEN add the crystals..
not the other way around.. :)

At the very bottom of the box are two fabric frenchy tags.

This is the box all wrapped up. Yep, once again Sandi got things upside down. I had to stand
on my head to read the Joyeux Noel on the wrapping paper. ha ha!

The gorgeous paper...

I had fun doing this and after Christmas I might just make another one for a giveaway.

What do you think? Would you be interested? I am always running behind, but hey
you could use it for next year.

JOYEUX NOEL everyone!!
