Christmas Box -Creations by AR


Sorry to be absent so long, but my family emergency has really junked my mojo! My Dad was gravely ill, but as he has told me many times, he is "one tough bird"  and has made it through some daunting surgery. Not bad for an 80 year old!

This is a box I started before Dad's illness. I finally got to my scrap room last night and finished this box I made for Creations by AR and am almost done with another...so stay tuned for that one coming soon.   You can find this pattern HERE.                                                    

You can see by the side view that this box closes by just overlapping two top side pieces over the handle. EASY!     I used an old Emagination snowflake punch, one of my first Inkadinkadoo Snowman stamps, and the sentiment is from the Winter Wonderland cricut cartridge. DP and ribbon is retired from Stampin Up, also used Real Red and Very Vanilla SU! cardstock.

Enjoy!!!

Sue, glad to hear that your father recovered! :-) I was wondering how you'd been :-) Very cute box, nice coloring of the snowman!:-)

Sue, I just love this!!! What an adorable snowman image and he really dresses this box up to make a super cute little gift package!! Sure understand about those daddies and how we have to love and care for them (even if they are tough)! Mine is 84 and lives on our property during the cold half of the year. The rest of the year, he is almost 1000 miles away, but I would drop everything to be where he is if I had to (and have). Hugs to you for loving you dad so well!!

Glad to hear your dad is recovering...he and my MIL must be two of a kind...she rebounded from her near death experience nicely...will be 97 on the 15th!

I adore this little box. I have a couple of AR's patterns...so little time.
