Dollar Find Friday!

(Clicking on the image will take you right to the chat!)

It's Friday and that means cheap gifts .... LOL ... but really today should be called 'Made with Love Friday' because it doesn't really matter on how much you spend, it is how good it makes you feel after finishing your project and knowing it is going to someone you love! I picked up a few of these shoe boxes from Michaels and intended to use them for storage. Well after moving my craft space, I don't have as much room so had to down size so I had a few extra boxes. So I thought why not make some homemade Christmas 'wrapping' for some of my gifts.

I used SU designer paper and Basic Grey cardstock and covered the entire box. Then I cut out a bunch of images from Penguin Love on white cardstock, coloured them up a little and then did some on the same designer paper for the tree's and Santa's bag full of toys. Added a little Riding Hood Red ribbon around the top as it needed something there. Then I had some grey Thickers and added the sentiment to the top! I had to go with Xmas as I didn't have enough letters for 'Christmas'! Viola, a gift box! Now what to put in it???

Have a great weekend Everyone!


  1. This looks terrific Jessica! It must have taken you forever. I bet whoever you gift this towill love the box more than what is inside of it (unless it is a bunch of your handmade cards of course).


  2. Great job, Wendy!! The box turned out so cute!

  3. Great box! I wish I didn't work Friday nights -- it would be so much fun to join the "chat".

  4. Love the box....I would love to get one like that from someone!!!
