Crafty Christmas Countdown #19 – Self Closing Box using Christmas Around the World

  • November 24, 2017

I’ve wanted to share this box with you all for over a year now, but every time I tried to work out an easy way of doing it, it just led to frustation. Lol I saw template of an svg file recently and had a eureka moment of how to do this so it was easy to follow.

For the life of me I couldn’t figure out what to use to finish the box and it didn’t help that I forgot to order some more black ribbon. My brain is like swiss cheese at the moment. Lol. Let me know what you think should finish it off and i’ll have a play, or share your versions so everyone can be inspired.

I do love the Christmas around the world DSP, I know you are probably sick of seeing me use it now but is really has some lovely patterns so I can’t promise I wont be using it some more. lol.

Hope you enjoyed that project, I love seeing all your versions of my projects so remember to share and tag me so I can see, or you can share them in my Intatwyne Designs Craft Forum facebook group and i’ll see them in there. All supplies are available from my online shop, its open 24/7 so you can shop online anytime. Make sure you use this months hostess code X2MH234R if your order is under £150.

    Hello Angelina: I wan to thank you for sharing your creativity and talent with the world.
    I just saw a video on Utube on the “Card and Tag Holder” you made on December 2nd. 2016 and fell in love with it, I made one and it was such a hit with my family that I’m going to make more for my grandchildren’s Teachers and Coaches. I’m happy you shared the link to make the tags and tag holders too.
    Thank you again for your generosity and kindness, I’m going to subscribe to your blog even if I’m in the USA, I absolutely love everything you do.
    I’m sending warm wishes for you and your family for a Blessed Christmas and a Joyful, Healthy and Prosperous 2018.
    Big Hugs,
    Maria Rodriguez.
