Can you seriously see what number we’re at? Number 20? That means Christmas is chasing my tail super fast!

Only 4 more projects to go after this one….!

But today’s video project is a melding of my strange and quirky head and things I’ve seen around the internet recently.

I’ve seen a lot of projects recreating Father Christmas’s suit – cards, boxes, gift card holders. And while I like them, they’re not very me. But I do love that colour combination of red, black and white.

So while I was merrily pondering what to do for project number 20, I started moving bits of red, black and white card around in my head (where most of my work gets done, little in comparison is actually done at my desk!) and decided to remake one of my most popular boxes, the Fold Flat Box, but with a specific size in mind, and that trio of colours.

I give you, the Glimmer Paper Boxes that have been designed to fit around the Decorative Label Punch and the Curly Label Punch!

And the Glimmer Paper bit? Well, in the decoration of course!

Here’s the video! oh, and while I remember, 5 year old Jacob got hold of the Red Glimmer Star box and decided it looked like a dice. He wanted me to rename it as such. I didn’t. Perhaps one for the future….!
