Christmas Box for Handmade Gift Tags

Hey guys, I have an adorable Christmas project to share with you today and honestly ... I had such a nice afternoon making this one! Peppermint tea, holiday music playing and crafting. Totally felt like a hallmark moment and I loved it.

With Christmas coming, I've been looking forward to making my handmade gift tags. I love the personal touch they add to my presents but, I needed a better place to store them other than the plastic bag I usually use. So ... I made this sweet Christmas themed box!

It's a perfect place to store small items and since it's so festive, it can sit out as holiday decor. It would look adorable sitting on a side table to hold Christmas cards, photos, candy, your glasses or jewelry, small remotes or a deck of cards.  
You could also use this as a gift box to give a present in!  It would be perfect for homemade cookies or candy, an ornament, a gift card, jewelry or any little gift. So practical and so, so CUTE!

I used Doodlebug's adorable new collection called Night Before Christmas. I started with a box from Graphic 45 (Kraft Staples Book Box) and covered it with white card stock. I added the striped paper and the light bulb die cuts around the sides of the box. And for the top, I layered the Jolly St. Nick pattern (Ladybug side) and more white card stock.  
Now for the really fun part ... adding all of the cute embellishments to the top!! I used so many stickers and just played with what I liked! Have fun with this part and make it all your own. (All product links are below.)

For the inside, I kept it simple and just lined the sides and the bottom with patterned paper. Super easy!
As I mentioned earlier, I love making my own gift tags ... so check back here again soon and I'll show you all those wonderful handmade tags I made to store inside. I hope this project puts you in a Christmasy mood! Thanks for stopping by!
Update: I've added some product links below. A few are for Doodlebug's Let it Snow Collection as a great substitute. You can find the Night Before Christmas products below or at Starlit Studios HERE.
