Gifts for Kids

Hello and welcome, Christmas gifts and hand made, mmmm I wasn't too confident with this idea but I actually had a lot of fun making these. Filled with chocolate or something similar they could be a lasting gift for a child and maybe a keepsake for next year ?
All the details are at the Craft Barn blog where you will find more beautiful gifts from the design team throughout this week.



This wooden box is a set of two and they nest beautifully.
The  Santa stamp is an Impression Obsession, it made me smile. Santa's beard is glittered and really sparkly.









The red box is the smaller of the two as you can see:0) and I've used white glossy embossing paste through a couple of Dreamweaver stencils and glittered librally.
Over at the CB Blog Michelle has made a brilliant gift for a child, do have a peek, I think you'll like it:0)

These are gorgeous, Gay. I love them both. The Santa is for the Children and the red one is very grown up. I have just ordered them for DD. Perfect for filling with choccies like you say and she can keep all her teasures in them afterwards. Thanks so much for the inspiration.
