Getting in to the Christmas spirit

I still have lots of Autumn photos to scrap but on Saturday I received a pizza box of goodies from Bubbly Funk and I couldn't resist getting started on the Christmas products. I love the Christmas goodies but it was the little gingerbread men that really caught my imagination this weekend.

I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year. My son will be 4 years old and he's so aware of what's going on this year. It's going to be so exciting and I can't wait. We've made biscuits for Father Christmas every year (except the first one when he was only a couple of months old and I was still in shock ;) )but I'm not sure he's really 'got it'. This year he will though so I couldn't resist covering this little gingerbread man in Basic Grey paper and added some glitter dots for eyes and buttons.

I found a little box in the charity shop for less than a pound and I covered it in two Basic Grey papers. The edges of the box and the gingerbread men are sanded and then inked with versa. One of the fabby chipboard rectangles from deluxe designs became a great message board and I used some small alphas and an October Afternoon 'gifts' sticker to say 'Biscuits for gifts'. I hand cut some holly to mimic the paper from the green paper and stuck some red buttons on top for berries.

I used glossy accents to stick them to the box.
