Bitty Box

I stayed up last night to make 30 of these cute bitty boxes. These are going to be given to the nice people at the Koolau Clinic in Kaneohe where mom and dad go for their blood tests and medication pick ups. I used the XL Sizzix die called Bitty Box and envelope (#115967). I only cut out the box. I stamped the sentiment Merry Christmas which came from a really nice set of sentiments - Teeny Tiny Wishes (#115370) and used a strip from my scrap bin. The cute birdie is from the Berry Christmas set (#116509) - sorry that I keep using this bird, but it's so cute! Thought I'd share a couple of photos of my Christmas tree and some of the stuff I put up to get me in the holiday spirit. Here's part of my snoman collection. I don't put them all out like I used to...just thinking about putting them all back scares me, LOL!
Here's a photo of my tree. This year, the tree was actually too big and we had to cut a good amount off from the top and bottom. No star for the top this year! It's a beautiful tree, so green and fresh. I said that I wasn't going to put up a tree this year, but it just didn't feel like Christmas! Maybe I'll hunt for an artificial tree after Christmas.
Hope you are enjoying the holidays...I took the day off and spent most of my day finishing up the shopping and now I'm off to wrap the gifts! Thanks for taking the time to visit and comment, you know that brings a smile to my face!

That is such a cute bitty box! At first I thought, I never saw that die and then remembered that it's a SU box. Wow, I still have a lot of shopping to do too. Love your tree too! If only my tree could look like yours. LOL!
