BBTB2 - Gift Boxes

Hello Friends. How are you doing?
Sorry I still seem to be missing in action.
My son hasn't been well and he is in for his scan today. Thank you for all your well wishes.
Hopefully we will finally get to the bottom of things.

I finished doing my extra work hours last week...yippee! And we are off for a few days of pampering and golf in Wales later this week.

Today is my turn to host over at BBTB2 and I chose gift boxes.
I love stacked boxes that are tied up with ribbon and so that was my inspiration....

I used Sweet Tooth Boxes and cut at 7" 8" and 9" for the boxes.
I love the choice of box lids on this cricut cartridge ...I just wanted plain lids.

The ribbon is from dovecraft.

The DP is Nordic Christmas by First Edition.
I love that these only took 3 sheets of 12 x 12 paper!

Do check out all the fabulous inspiration from The DT Ladies and I hope you join in the fun with us.

Thanks for looking in.
