Now, enjoy this great tutorial from Andrew. He used The Twelve Days of Christmas so beautifully to make this perfect project!

"We were asked to create a gift tutorial project. I combined a christmas box and mini album. I love to try and make combination projects. I used the mini album that came with the Graphic 45 film canister as an album for christmas memories on the outside and this still made it possible to give a gift inside as well, In this case some chocolates.

Tip: Dont be afraid to make the outside of altered box projects interactive. Try making your mini album on the lid as I have done here or create tag pockets or fold outs. There are so many options you can try."~Andrew

"The Twas The Night Before christmas collection is so pretty and almost scraps itself, I think. I just love it when I can manage to make something in less than 2 hours and that is exactly what happened when I made this tag. I cut out the Santa and two clocks and it was like everything just fell on the right place without having to think about it. " ~Romy

Amazing creations!! So ffun and festive!!! TFS!


I would love to win!! Thanks for sharing the wonderful projects all week!

Great projects, as always. I love your blog!

These tutorials are so welcome. Thank you!

I do love anything Christmas! Thanks for posting these projects. Jolly holly!

I've not seen the film canisters before, an interesting idea....

The G45 film canisters is new to me. I haven't seen them online yet?? Both projects are terrific ideas. Love the idea of two gifts in one with the film canister album/candy tin. I'd love to try that. I have made my Christmas cards and tags using both the 12 Days of Christmas and Twas the Night Before Christmas, even inter-changing the collections, and, they all came out wonderful (thanks to your Gift Guide ideas!)

Today's Christmas projects look like so much fun - can't wait to try them!
