Christmas in July, part 5

 Hi again!  Since I didn't make anything in this post........GASP!  LOL.......I thought I would share it along with the birdie cross stitch in my previous post.

This is a decorative box that I got from Hobby Lobby.  Obviously I didn't make the box. LOL  I just wanted to share what I did with it.  My swap partner Mary does amazing beadwork.  She loves "shiny" beads & buttons so I thought I would fill this box with both.   (It nearly drove her young daughter crazy when she shook the big box I packed everything in & she heard the RATTLE.  LOL)  These beads & buttons came from my huge stash that I dearly love.  Some are vintage & close to my heart.  I also included some brand new shiny beads that I thought she might have fun playing with & put them in a pretty little gauze bag.

I added a little "Love" sign & told her to look for the "Love" inside.  LOL (I found out later that she loves boxes.......I had no idea.)

 Here are some additional items I put in her large box.

 Yummy Cinnamon Nutmeg Pot Pourri with a metal Star bell attached.

Avon Santa, Snowman, Penguin & (hiding) Reindeer lip balm.

 and some little sparkly nail files.

Thanks for taking a peek inside the box with me today.  I'll be back tomorrow with my last CIJ "show & tell".  I promise that it's a little something that I made.  LOL

Huggies & Sweet Blessings ~♥♥♥~
