xmas gifts boxes treats

Happy Monday!  We have "survived" a week of multiple school concerts and events, plus a birthday. Finals week for the college kid starts today and the highschoolers next week.  Family stress levels are at Defcon 2 and rising.  I think I need some eggnog stat!  And maybe a quiet dark room.  Definitely some diet coke!!!!  My goal for this week is to provide as much comfort as possible for the stressed out teens and recover my own holiday spirit by wrapping some gifts in my PJs.  Thank goodness for Amazon prime delivery to the door of all the Christmas gifts!  I'm sure some of Santa's Elves are working for Amazon, lol.  While I would like to do some local shopping, there just isn't any time!

In the spirit of wrapping gifts, our BBTB2 challenge this week is Christmas gifts, boxes, or embellished treats.  Along with all the bows, boxes, and wrapping paper, my gift wrap area has this little cutie of a Christmas tree box waiting for some goodies!  I made it using the Cricut Artiste cartridge and it was super simple to fold and put together.  Like, you can make this thing lickety split and look like a rock star in the gift wrapping department!  It's the perfect size for that secret Santa gift of candy or tiny treat at work....not saying that's what I'm doing with or anything, so if you are one of my workmates reading this, it's totally not from me!  The design team over at BBTB2 has some festive projects for you to see to get inspired and you can link up your holiday project.  I wish you all a not too stressful week that holds a Christmas treat or two!


  1. A wonderful gift box!

  2. I love how you presented this cute package with all tge pretty bows. The paper you used looks so wonderful on your tree box.

  3. Oh dear! You need your own personal set of elves! I too love Amazon. With my mom, I have done 98% of my Christmas shopping on line - so much easier. Plus I do not lose my religion to shoppers and traffic, ha!

    I hope you rediscover your Christmas joy! Hot chocolate, gift wrap, Christmas carols are the recipe.

    Love your tree box. I have never made this project, but you may have inspired me.

    Merry Christmas!!
