City Crafter Guest Designer, Hold it!

Hi everyone! Today I have the pleasure of being a guest DT at one of my favorite challenge blogs
City Crafter.  Ros challenge for you this week is to make or decorate a container ... 
This can be anything from a bag, box, card holder to a household container
We are really looking forward to seeing what you can come up with so get your thinking caps on and come and join us!


Here's the inspiration photo
 
and here's what I made
I found a candle set in a box that I though would be perfect for transforming into a Christmas gift.
I know my recipient is going to love this!!!
this palette from TCR is so perfect for Christmas!
Picture
I used a Simple Stories line in Kraft that would work beautifully with a piece of Maya Road linen

I used the same linen to wrap around my candles and tied it up with a brad

this is how it looks once opened!
to finish my packaging I hand cut some holy leaves and did some backstitching to them and did a couple of French knots in the center for the berries.
Pretty simple and quite effective!
 
I thanks so much the gals at CCCB for having me this week and I hope my container has given you some ideas for the coming Holiday season!
 
Hugs

What a sweet gift set, Milagros! Love the personal touches you added to the candles and the box! The burlap linen fabric is so, so pretty. Great idea to wrap the candles in it, too. And your handcut felt leaves with the stitching are truly just so sweet! Uh-dorable!
And congrats on your guest designer spot with CCCB!
