First Christmas present made and wrapped for Tuesday Taggers

This girls is a first!! First time I've had pressies made well in advance of Christmas and first time
I've had a present wrapped before Christmas Eve.

This weeks challenge at Tuesday Taggers is to creat whatever you would like to make BUT...Without using any patterned papers. This week we'd like you to make your own backgrounds using inks, glimmer mists, embossing, stamping, in fact using any technique you fancy.

The DT have come up with some amazing techniques with our Lyn taking the biscuit by using washing up liquid. Never heard of that one! Pop over and have a look, quite a variety to be seen. Some while ago I made some Wise Man Sure Shave and some Three King splash on one of the lotions and potions workshops I ran, so thought I would make the boxes and
decorate them for presents.

These are the finished boxes.
All inked with TH distress inks and coloured with SU inks, with a bit of glitz to brighted them up.
Was hesitent to give the shaving oil away as it gives a beautiful finish to my legs when I use it.
Still it is Christmas - Nearly!
Hope you'll join us at Tuesday Taggers this week, it's great seeing all your ideas.

Fantastic gifts Michelle and such beautiful gift boxes, I love the three wise men stamp, I'd love to know who's stamp it is if you have a moment? I also love the idea of making your own potions, I think the splash on for men and shave oil is a wonderful idea, I could do with having a go at something like this myself as my hubby has allergies to all perfumed products, and it's a shame that he can never wear cologne. This might be just the thing. I'm sure whoever receives these will love them. Chris x
