MCT 12 Days of Christmas Day 7

If you are looking for my Simply Crafts Project, scroll down or click HERE.

Hello friends and welcome to the 7th day of Emma's 12 Days of Christmas. If you arrived here from the talented Cindy's blog you are in the right spot. If not make sure to start at Emma's blog.

Today I have another quick and easy project for you. These little boxes only take a square piece of paper, a little scoring and folding, a few hole punches and some ribbon or twine to tie it together. From there you are pretty much done. This container is made with a 6x6 piece of paper from the Be Merry paper pad by My Minds Eye.


I inked all of the edges with a nice warm brown before I tied it all together. Then I threw in some M & M's and I was done. If you don't know how to make these little boxes my friend Pam has a nice video tutorial for you HERE. Once you make one or two, you can just do it from memory. They are just that easy.

The awesome circle shape on the front is from Emma's Scallop and Stitched Circle Die set. I just used the Stitched Circle Die for this project. I also used the Warm Holiday Wishes sentiment from her Mixed Holiday Sentiment stamp set.
