Gift wrapping, boxes and curvy keepsake die

I received a phone call out of the blue last week following a 50th Birthday party we attended. A lady had made enquiries from the birthday girl (well almost) about who gave the best wrapped/decorated present and she said me. 

The task was to wrap Christmas Presents, in a manner that was better than ordinary, but I only had 3 days.

To help me in the challenge, I asked Leanne and I’m pleased I did!!!!!!. 

When we arrived at the house, we were met with boxes and boxes of gifts in every room, over 300 in total. Some were to be wrapped in multiples and other’s on their own.

The challenge was on...

 

We brought all the gifts home and started on the task…. 

 

 
8 hours later, we were still not finished, but I also made boxes etc. to disguise the small ones, using my Stampin' Up! gift box punch board, which for me added the final touch. 



Can you spot the snowman box in the above photo….. These are made using
the curvy keepsake die and we have orders for over 200 of these in 5 different designs. I will be posting photos over the next few days of a new design of a cute little reindeer. If you would like one or more of the boxes, they are still available. £1.50 each or 4 for £5.  Just contact me or Leanne………
 I also mentioned I make cards…. So in the 3 days, I was also asked to make two special cards (both had to be different) with a Christmas theme and using poinsettias…. The lady was over the moon with the finished cards, and came complete with matching gift boxes to hold them.


  All I can say is, the lady made it worth our time….thank you xx
