Stampin’ Up! ADVENT COUNTDOWN 4 Sweetie Favour Box VIDEO
This little box is a super cute box, but hides a whole lot of sweeties.
Chocolate Limes to be precise…
It is at this point that you realise just how much of a colour-matching girl I really am.
My kitchen is all pale greens and chocolatey browns with vanilla cupboards. So I like to accessorise with those same colours in my ornaments, and this doesn’t change at Christmas. I am that girl. The one who has way more Christmas Trees up than is really necessary (4 is fine, isn’t it? 2 in one room isn’t overkill, surely not…?) but anyway, moving swiftly away from the strange impression I’m giving that I’m some sort of Christmas Fairy on speed, I’m really really not. I just happen to have one Christmas Tree at the eating area of my kitchen that is decorated in the same soft greens and chocolate browns.
And as a result of that, I like to ‘theme’ my Christmas Tables to match. And we don’t just have one meal over the festive season. We have loads. Sometimes just because it’s Tuesday and it’s raining. We break out the posh plates, napkins, glasses and the whole full monty. I love it, the children love it, and we have a lot of fun.
So that therefore means that my dining table always has some sort of Christmassy decoration on it, which (very long windedly!) leads me around to today’s Advent Countdown project. The super tiny box that hides a whole pile of Chocolate Limes, all in my kitchen colours….
Oh stop laughing at me and my foibles. It’s what makes me unique, and you love it really 🙂
So, without further ado, here’s the video, I do chatter and natter in it a little when I’m doing the heat embossing, and the lovely downliner of mine that I mentioned is Polly, and her blog is here at Little Bird Blue
