It's Friday, time to share an oldie.

I was sat looking at the computer and the dates, whilst thinking of what to write today, this time next week it will be Christmas morning. 
This therefore will be the last oldie before the "big day," I know both you and I will have plenty to do on Christmas morning, usually in the kitchen.

Are you joining me for the first time?
If so, on a Friday I re-share an old crafty project, re-blogging something I have made in the past.  I also encourage you to join me.  It can be anything that you have made yourself, all I ask is that you comment below.  This is purely to let me know you are joining in, it makes it easy for me to then pop over to your blog and share the love of crafting, I will comment on all.

Today I have my last Christmas oldie to share till next year.  This is what I have picked.

To make this box I have used Spellbinder Grand Hexagon Petal envelope die together with the A4 embossing folder Lattice.  I have also used a roll of acetate with Spellbinder dies Create a flake 3 and 2010 Snowflake pendant. 
The hexagon envelopes create the top and bottom of the box and I have used 8 of the snowflake die inside to create the 3D snowflake, I recommend using paper rather than card as it makes threading the ribbon and a bell easier for hanging inside the box.  The snowflakes on the top are the 2010 pendant and Create a flake 3 layered on top with 3D foam.

It isn't the best of photographs but if you click on it the bigger size gives you a better idea.
I have finished the festive season with a box instead of a card but you can share any crafting project.

That's all from me today, I am working again today and tomorrow, then a busy run up to Christmas eve next week.  It's going to get a little bit crazy in the next 7 days.
I'd like to take the opportunity to thank you for taking the time to join me today, I look forwards to blog hopping later this evening to see what you have shared too.

I hope you have a super weekend and a lot more fun than I guarantee I will be having at work.
Ho, ho, ho!

A fabulous oldie today Erika, the snowflake die looks very pretty. I'm afraid I haven't joined in today though, had a GDT post to blog.
Hope work was ok and that the customers are full of Christmas cheer.
