Bring on the Presents EPB Favour Box

Hello, Crafters.

Quite some time ago, I shared the Father Christmas EPB Box

 on my blog, saying at some stage I'd make a video! Last 

week I received a note from an Australian Demonstrator 

asking if I ever did make a video?  I confessed that no

 I hadn't but promised I'd remedy that today! 

Last weekend when hubby and I were out and about, I was 

looking for some Christmas chocolates to put in my boxes but

 I couldn't find anywhere. In fact, I couldn't find any Halloween 

sweets, tricks or treats. Although Halloween isn't much of a 

celebration in the UK, I would have expected to have seen

 some evidence that it's not that far away.
 When I was preparing for the video, I had a look around 

to see what I could put in my boxes, and I found some 

Easter Eggs and tea bags - not exactly what I had in mind,

 but hey-ho, never mind, they'll do! LOL!!

The next hurdle was that I couldn't remember how I'd 

made the Santa box so had no choice but to pull the box 

apart - I was really pleased how nicely it 

went back together again!
Using retired cardstock (CS), it took three attempts to work it

 out, but I made it! I'm really pleased with the Christmas

 boxes I made but I decided I needed to use a light colour 

for the video. I decided to go with Shimmery White 

CS because I could then use the gorgeous gold

 baubles design from the All is Bright Designer Series Paper (DSP). 
The dark green DSP on the Cherry Cobbler Box is also from 

the All is Bright DSP. The white background DSP on the 

other Cherry Cobbler box is from the Dashing Along DSP

which is on promotion during September. 
The deal is that workshop orders over £200, earn the hostess

 this pack of DSP free. Likewise, if any customers put in an order

 over £200, they will also receive a complimentary pack. 

That's about it from me today. I hope you've enjoyed 

tody's project, and until tomorrow, happy crafting.
