DIY Christmas Gift Boxes

The other day I was driving and as I normally do most of my thinking and planning it dawned on me…the fact that I am so not ready for Christmas and the year end, but also that for once I have the absolute perfect patterned paper for the festive season. Lady Pattern Paper in red and green and especially the new star designs are just perfect. And so is how my little Christmas boxes came to fruition.
