Christmas Gift Idea

Two posts in one day! Go me!
I thought I had to work this morning, so I went in bright and early, at 730am, only to be told I was 24 hours early. So, I've had the day to myself today!
I thought I was all but done on my Christmas cards/gifts.... I was wrong... I like to have a few small gifts on hand in case someone unexpected shows up, or more likely, someone gives me a gift, and I haven't gotten them anything.... So, this is one of them.

It's a little gift box I designed around some mug drip filters for coffee. My parents brought some back from Japan, and then I found a small supply of them at Woolworths. These fit perfectly in the box, and make a nice gift, as it is something that people probably wouldn't buy for themselves, because they can be a bit pricey. I used a piece of plastic packaging as a window on the front of the box, so you can see what is inside... and because I couldn't waste something that easy to use!
I also found that it fits into two different challenges... This was completely unintentional this time, I swear! The two challenges are, the Colour Throwdown and the Stampin' Royalty Winter Holiday Theme Challenge

OH jess, you are so clever and what a great idea for a just in case present. The best part is if no one unexpected arrives there is an extra pressie for you under the tree go you babe.

I just love you and your work,
merry christmas babe.
