Stocking Gift Box

Today is the day at The Cutting Cafe for the Design Team 
to show all their beautiful projects.

This time we had a "free for all" and were able to choose
what ever cut file we wanted.
Oh my, the choices!!

I picked this stocking box for 3 reasons!

1.  I LOVE it!
2. It is so easy to make, but yet looks like a million bucks!
3. I have a gift exchange Dec 3rd and needed it for that!!

This box cut file I used is the Christmas Stocking Box.
It comes in two sizes, large and small.
I am using the large size today!

I think this box has a rather "retro" feel to it.

Here is a side view (the back is completely finished, too).

Here is a view without the tissue in it......

I wanted to show you the one I made last year...
a bit more fancy....just goes to show you how you can 
decorate them all differently, depending on the style you want
or to "fit" the person that is receiving it!

Head on over to The Cutting Cafe Blog and see what the rest
of the DT has to show you, 
I know that's where I am going to be!!
