A Christmas gift box in September?


Christmas-gift-box-for-Maya-Road-by-Yvonne-Yam

Yep, apparently so. I'm starting on my Christmas projects early this year...(yay, go me!).



I started with a really nice tea box from TWG (all my decorated boxes come from recycled packaging). Since the brand was only on the top lid and back spine, I went with a strip of patterned paper that covered just those areas. And added a strip of pearl trim for a decorative edge.



I went with one big decorative cluster along the bottom right of the box, right down to where the lid of the box opens for a waterfall effect and it does help guide the eye to where the opening of the box is.


Now to find things that would fit into this box. What? I'm supposed to do the Christmas shopping before doing up the gift boxes? *winks* 

Happy week ahead friends!

P/s: For a complete listing of the products I've used on my project, please head over to the Maya Road blog.
