Do you have friends? I mean real friends? Really good friends? I hope you do, because we should all have those people that make us lighten up, make us feel not so awkward, help us find the funny in the maddening. I have friends like these, and guess where I met them, at my twins school. Volunteering. Yes... I found some hilarious, kind hearted and twisted women I can call my very own. My wish for you is I wish you friendship for Christmas, because you deserve it.
As any good friend should do, I got my girls chocolate and of course had to wrap it up in a nice little package. I have to say hearing them make "big" over the boxes made be uber happy,
you know that feeling :)
I used SvgCuts tied surprise boxes, MTE Holly Jolly tags, MTE Holly Jolly Phrases (both of which are on sale for $9.00 each!). I wanted to keep the box itself simple with kraft brown and add the bling. I did find some great little embellishments from K&Co, Trendy Twine in Holly Berry (enabler alert-It's on sale for $7.95!) & Sky in my great hoarding stash.
|I used the Recollections paper that has a light sheen-It stamps|
super easy and adds the lovely sparkle.
I sure enjoyed making these, they were just what I needed to calm my addled Christmas frenzied brain. Therapy in it's simplest form.
