Long, long day!  I hate cleaning the house!  I like it clean, but I don't like doing it.  Someday I will have someone who comes in once every week or two to do it for me.  Someday...  Then, of course, I spent a long time going through all the fantastic sale products and deciding what I would be ordering.  Lots of fun stuff coming my way! 

Today I have one of the boxes I designed for my Wrappin' Up Christmas Class to share with you.  I wanted a box that was a little bigger than the usual boxes - one that you could actually fit lots of candy, etc. in.   I came up with this cute box that is 6" tall and 1 1/2" Square.  You can really fit a lot in there!  I have also done it as a 5" high box.  I kept the decoration of the box simple so that we could finish it in time with the other projects we had to make.  I hope you all enjoy my box!
