High Hopes Projects

Last week's High Hopes challenge was to make a Gift Box/Bag gift card holder.  Daring Cardmakers challenge is to make something with a "fun element". 
To meet both these challenges I made this Advent card which has a little container to go with it containing the 24 decorations for the tree.  The card is a thank you to my work colleagues for my wonderful leaving gift of a Cricut machine.  As you can see I used the Cricut for the card and the little baubles with the High Hopes image gracing the pot to hold the baubles, which all have sticky foam on the back ready for attaching to the tree.

My second project is just for the High Hopes challenge - a gift box I made for Mum to choose for one of her gifts.  She has lots of people helping her out these days and this box holds a lovely scented candle in the shape of a pine cone.
