3-Tiered Christmas Boxes

Last week I bought the most amazing papers.
The kind that you don't want to cut into,
you just want to put them in a drawer
and take them out every so often to look at them.
Then I came across this idea for these 3 nesting boxes
and new it would be a perfect way to try my papers out.

This is also my entry for this week's
Stampin' For The Weekend challenge,
where the theme is
'Festive Goodie Box'
Check out the great ideas from the DT -
I am going to find this challenge so useful for
boxing up some Christmas goodies.
I have to say a big thankyou to Shannon for this idea,
that you can see on her blog
Northern Girl Stamper
She has made some awesome box sets and has also
posted the instructions for making the boxes.

I haven't actually put anything in my boxes -
I am just going to use them as a Christmas decoration.

They look fabulous on my white mantelpiece,
and you might not be able to see from my photos,
but all the papers are glittered.

The Design Paper is My Mind's Eye,
Signature Christmas.
Happy Christmas Stamp from Pink Gem Designs
