Gingerbread Gift Boxes

It was our usual girly craft night last night, and this week we all made little pizza style gift boxes.  I used some free papers and chipboard shapes that came free with Papercraft Inspirations magazine to decorate mine.
 I've used Martha Stewart punches on the strips of paper on the sides of the boxes and added gems and pearls to decorate the lids, the chipboard shapes were already glittered.
 The candles in the top box are sugar and spice scented to reflect the gingerbread theme, they smell really yummy!
 The mini candy canes in the bottom box came from Poundland, you get a box of 36 for a pound, they're all individually wrapped too.  I managed to fit a dozen in the box.  I haven't seen such small candy canes before, they're really cute, and I love how they match the backing paper I've used. I've got enough left to fill another two boxes, I'll have to get busy and make some more!
I'm entering this project in the following challenges -
City Crafter - #185 - Hold It
Shopping Our Stash - #127 - Use Something Already on your Desk - I subscribe to a mag, which had just arrived, this project was made with the free gift that was still sitting on my desk
Eclectic Ellapu - Anything but a Card
2 Sisters - #169 - Christmas Sparkle
