Tis the Season for Christmas parties and I always try and make a little something to give the host/ess. In the last couple of years we've given homemade wine but this year i'm gifting these super cute very clever game boxes. I came across this brilliant idea on another Stampin' Up! demonstrators blog and I HAD to make one!
There are compartments for the clues, answer sheets and pencils.
The answers are the titles of Christmas Carols, the clues are wordy descriptions that you have to decipher. My pictures don't do this project justice, it turned out perfect and i'm so happy with it.

The instructions are easy to follow the pics are great and I made one quick and easy. Check out the link and make one yourself!
I'll be making several more of these for people who I know LOVE games!
Stamp Sets: Stampin' Up! Snowflakes
Colours: Brocade Blue, Night of Navy and Whisper White
Accessories- Marvy Snowflake punch, misc. white ribbon and snowflake brad.

More cards being sent to my Secret Sis. I will be sending the trifold card to her just before New Years. The below Reindeer card is also my final design for the Christmas cards i'm sending out to family and friends this year.
This card looks better in Real Life. The edges and reindeer are darker and its more distressed. This card is all Stampin' Up! supplies.
Stamp Sets: Dasher, Teeny Tiny Wishes, Patterned Pines
Colours: Kraft, Chocolate Chip, Real Red
Accessories: Alpine ribbon (clearance at Stampin' Up!) Top Note die, and Plenty of Petals embossing folder, Modern Label and Word Window Punches.
These tri fold cards are fun and fairly easy to make. I love how they turn out and i've been making them for quite a few people and special occasions.
Stamp Sets: Teeny Tiny Wishes from Stampin' Up, Penguin, and Snowman poem from Elzybelles
Colours: Stampin' Up! Night of Navy, Shimmery White, Basic Black, and Basic Grey
Accessories: Marvy Snowflake punch, Martha Stewart Icicle border punch, misc. white ribbon, Star dust Stickes, Clear Rhinestones, Modern Label and Word Window punches, and retired patterened paper all from Stampin' Up!
The poem says...
I made myself a snowball, as perfect as could be,
I though I'd keep it for a pet and let it sleep with me.
I made it some pajamas and a pillow for its head.
Then last night it ran away, but first it wet the bed!
