Blossoming Box and Christmas Freebies!

My packages to my friends and family are
IN THE MAIL!
That is a huge hurdle!
But now there are not so many presents under the tree : (

I am so enjoying my daily gifties from my my Secret Santa
in JoAnne's Secret Santa Advent Swap:

Unopened:

Opened!


So sweet!

I have also been having fun making these "exploding boxes":

This pic is of the top:


When you lift the top from the box, it falls open to reveal 20 "pages"
where you can put photos, etc.

I will paste pictures of Christmases past in this one,
which is for my sister. Aw...
I think I will rename them blossoming boxes : )

Here are a couple of Christmas freebies for you:


Don't these birds make you feel peaceful inside?

Thanks for the link to the exploding box tutorial Lorraine. Yours is absolutely beautiful! And thanks for the sweet bird images. You can never have too many bird images as far as I'm concerned.
I'm glad you're enjoying the Christmas box swap. I am as well-I have the BEST Secret Santa (wink, wink)

Such a beautiful box! You are so talented. Love the post cards, too.
Thank you for viewing my post and leaving your lovely message. Isn't it fun to sometime see that others have the same thing you do?
Merry Christmas to you,
