Cute and cheap Christmas gift boxes!

Last night my friend Bekah and I had our annual Christmas gift exchange. We got bravos take-out, filled my dining room table with crafting supplies and watched Christmas movies.

Here's us trying to fit in all our gifts for a picture...including the JCrew slippers I got her. Pictured: Fossil watch, Wood chip ornaments, Slippers and Tea.

While watching Miracle on 34th Street I got out my Martha Stewart Scoreboard to play with. I bought this tool on sale a while back and have only managed one project with it. Check it out here. I set out to make gift boxes and I'm in love. If you want to make cute boxes and envelopes this is the perfect tool and they are surprisingly easy. I used the video tutorial below.

And for your viewing pleasure...Allison and Bekah in lights.

Side note: I am so excited...I just sent out my ornament for the blogger ornament swap to my fabulous partner Megan from over at Mackey Madness. There will be a link up to tell all about it on December 14th. Happy Weekend!
