Countdown Day 17

Sherry of (ificouldsetmysoulfree) sent me this box. The front has a 3d christmas tree cut out and inside was this cute little ruffled christmas tree hanging. I love how the candy stripes of the material swirl around. Thankyou Sherry.

I know who has my no.17 box as Maria of hunted treasures sent me an email back in November when all her boxes arrived from Linda.

There is a little story to go with this box!
I made the box from red craft paper and the inset is from an old christmas card.
The gold braiding is left over from a costume I made my daughter when she was 3 yrs old (now 00yrs daren't put the figures in )for her dancing school production of the King and I.(she was one of the kings children and dressed in a little siamese jacket and trousers in emerald green with this braiding round the edges.) The bow decoration on the front and on the felt tree ornament are from an old pair of christmas earings that I have had for about 15yrs. This was one of my favourites because of the memories attached. Hope you will enjoy on your tree Maria.
