November Tour de Freaks It’s Christmas time!



The Control Freak swappers are showing off their Christmas finery in the Tour de Freaks blog tour this month!  Make sure to take the tour around to all the stops!  You've probably just come from the wonderfully talented Lisa Martz's blog.  If you've arrived here prior to November 20th, please know that not all the stops may be working yet.


I choose to do some Christmas packaging for my projects this month!  I have a Folded Top Box with window sides, a decorated Tag a Bag and my Nugget Tin all done up with Joyful Christmas poinsettias!

First up is the Folded Top Box…wish you could see how pretty it is in real life…the box folds and twists to close and then I added some Silver Ribbon to hang it if desired!  I cut just two of the center portions of the poinsettias to add to the side, then used A Banner Christmas for the words.  Inside is a cello bag filled with chocolate Christmas bells.

The Season of Style Designer Paper really is shown off on the sides and the top folds.  I used the Chalk Talk Framelits to cut and line the windows on each side.

If you remember, last month I did the Nugget tin in a fall theme.  This month I've used Joyful Christmas Stamp set and a couple layers of Poinsettias.  The inside I used a separator for the Hershey nuggets that are wrapped in Season of Style Designer Paper.  The belly band slides off to open.

Last, I decorated one of the Tag a Bags with a belly band.  I sold some of these at a craft fair…all they need to do is add the gift or a gift card!

Hope you like all my Christmas packaging ideas!  Again, make sure to continue on your way around the entire Tour de Freaks blog tour to see some fabulous Christmas ideas!  Next up is LeeAnn Greff, I'm sure you will love her projects!

OMG!  Will you share the instructions for that twisted top box?!  Beautiful.  And the Joyful Christmas just makes it more elegant.  Gotta get that stamp 🙂
