Especially for You Gift Box - FFFC #202 'Christmas'


We're kicking off our last challenge for the year at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge.  This challenge will remain open until January 11, 2018, while we take a break for Christmas and New Year.  The theme for this challenge is...what else...'Christmas.'  Please hop over to the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog to check out what my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us. 

For this Christmas challenge, I've created this gift box.

The lid lifts upward to reveal 3 compartments to put all your goodies in. 

To get to the bottom compartment, the two top drawers swing outwards.

To keep the gift box closed I used two small magnetic discs, one hidden in the flap of the lid and the other hidden in the middle of the front of the bottom compartment.

Now a closer look at the two Magnolia Stamps images being featured.

This is 'Tilda with Two Little Gifts' from Magnolia Stamps' A Christmas Story Collection 2012.

And this is 'Christmas Tilda with Cat' from their A Little Christmas Collection 2012.
