Twelve Days of Christmas - Day 12!

Thank you, thank you, thank you so much to all of you who have joined us for our Twelve Days of Christmas blog hop with Xyron, Design Memory Craft for Faber-Castell and Creative Imaginations. We have all be totally wowed by the gorgeous projects, the great tutorials, and the inspiring gift ideas.  As someone said yesterday "now I just need to find the time to do them all"!  :)

Our last day is all about gift boxes (well - almost all). Have you already purchased a store bought gift but want to add your own special touch?  Then a gift box is the perfect answer.  Today on her blog Tina McDonald shows you how to create two gorgeous boxes that deserve a special place under anyone's tree.

This upcycled tin would be PERFECT for a jewelry gift or other small item.  Look at the gorgeous detailing!

Tina used just a little bit of paper and a few dies to create this stunning gift box.  I can see these as little take home gifts filled with candy if you host a get-together!

Speaking of hosting a get-together - how about creating a breathtaking centerpiece using just an everyday pillar candle and a wooden circle.  That is exactly what Tina did here! This would be lovely on your own table or as an amazing hostess gift.

Tina walks you through each project on her blog, and for more inspiration head on over to the Design Memory Craft blog (they are having a great giveaway today!) for a fun Christmas ornament idea. Enjoy the rest of your long holiday weekend - thank you so much for sharing these past two weeks with us!
