Day 11 Decorated Gift Box Oct 27

For my post today I chose a very simple little gift box that I thought might make a nice thank you for a bus driver, postal carrier, all the people who help our lives run a bit smoother during the course of the year. This is a Ghirardelli box, you can find the tutorial on Splitcoast Stampers right here. It comes together very quickly.

For the holly sprig I used an image from the new set, "Holly Greetings" along with a simple sentiment. I also made a small border using a Martha Stewart holiday edge punch. Very simple, but a nice little box. Thanks for looking and happy hopping!
