Polkadoodle Challenge 45 - Gift Box

It's Friday so that can only mean another Polkadoodle challenge! I'm hosting the challenge this week and the theme is:
Gift Boxes

This can be for Christmas, or any other occasion as long as it is a gift box. The challenge is open until Sunday 22 November at 12noon GMT and please remember the 10 rule challenge!
I've used the template from Paper Boutique Vol 2 - Creative Christmas to make these little takeout gift boxes and then printed some of the papers from the same cd on the other side of the card.

They are really quick and easy to make! I know these look a little unfinished, and that's because they are! My intention is to use them at the table for our Christmas dinner, but as I don't know how many people will be there I've only made the 4 (just in case we end up staying at home and catering for ourselves!)

If I remember, I'll take a photo of the finished boxes closer to Christmas. But don't hold me to it as there are a lot of sleeps between now and then and I am likely to forget!

Before I go, I need to warn you of something big happening next week for the Polkadoodle challenge that you will NOT want to miss! We are hosting a blog hop with lots of prizes along the way - so if you've not got any Polkadoodle stash yet then this could be your chance to win some! More details are on next week's post so make sure you tune back in next Friday at 9am!

If you can't wait until then to win some Polkadoodle stash, then pop over to the website where you will find lots of goodies at great prices and the best bit is free postage and packing to anywhere in the whole wide world! Minimum spend to qualify is £5 but that won't be difficult!

We are still on the lookout for Design Team members - closing date for applications is 14 November - go to the challenge blog for more details of how to apply!
