It's November!!!

My last few posts have been very non-Christmas (although you could make a Christmas version of the box) so today I thought I'd share some of the stars from the Many Merry Stars Simply Created Kit. This kit features in the Autumn/Winter Supplement and is on a while supplies last basis.

I have one of the kits and so far have made a few of the stars but I'm planning on playing around with a few more to see about making them into boxes that can be opened and closed.

The three smallest stars now hanging on the tree in my craft room

2nd smallest - I love the wooden embellishments

The smallest box

This is the largest box and you get one of these

To give it some perspective this is it hanging on the wall in my craft room
The simply created kit contains everything you need to make the star boxes, as the tabs on the side pieces come with double sided tape on them.

It also comes with all the embellishments needed - baker's twine, stars, wooden elements and greetings. It does not however come with ribbon, and I've used some Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon to hang my boxes.

Have you noticed the little square boxes also hanging on the tree? The lovely Carol helped me make these using the Gift Box Punch Board and pieces of 6"x6" of card stock.  There are some little treats hiding inside the boxes. The boxes were pretty quick and easy to put together and are finished off with some Designer Series Paper from the Trim the Tree Designer Series Paper Stack and greetings from the That's the Ticket stamp set.

I'm currently putting together my last classes of the year and I have a sneaking suspicion that a star and a box might just be part of them.
