Altered box

It was Lizzie's turn to set the theme for the Christmas Card Club's challenge this fortnight and she asked us to make 'anything but a card'. I've had to prepare this ahead of time because when this goes live we will be away from home (attending a family funeral and extending our stay). I had very little time to make anything, but remembered that I had a sturdy box that I could alter:

My box isn't in the same league as those that Lizzie makes - click on the link above to see what she gets up to - partly because of lack of time, but mainly because I lack the skill to make anything like she does.

I covered it with some DCWV Christmas paper (although this paper could be used for any time of the year), adding some grosgrain decorated ribbon and some ripple bauble stickers from Hobbycraft, threading some red and white twine through and tying, then adding a few miscellaneous stickers. Very simple, but it will now be used to put some of my Christmas crafting bits and bobs in.
