Rainy Day Crafts

This week's bloggers challenge is Christmas in July!

I decided to wait, because due to the weather report. It's been pouring here all morning, my 4 year old, Alexis and I made these together this morning. Can you tell the box that she assembled?? I cut the cardstock, she did the sizzix (box #2 shown). I tied the ribbon and she picked the embellishments.

This is so simple. You cut two box #2's assemble them except for the flap. Punch a hole for the handle, then glue the two boxes together.

I've seen these cute little boxes on so many blogs I don't know who to give the credit for the idea to. If this was your original idea, please let me know so i can link back to you.

What a fun time and what a cute project.. This would be an awesome hostess gift filled with tags, or candy, or maybe a "little box" of jewelry?? :)

For me Christmas is about family. I had such a wonderful time crafting with my daughter. Great challenge! Please check out what my bloggers challenge girlfriends are doing and leave them a message so they know you've been there.
