can’t believe it’s 2009!!  happy New Year! 

we enjoyed the night at home. 

our nephew came over and hung out with nick… a little rock band, a little “dark knight”, lots of snacks & computer time…hubby hung out with the boys. 

i got a lot done.  enjoyed alone time in the other end of the house… 

organized my 2008 bills & paperwork. 

ate yummies, like hot wings & monkey munch… 

(watched a marathon of dog the bounty hunter…shame on me, but i like that show!)

earlier today bought some after-Christmas clearance at walmart.  (love it!!!)

bought some of the typical white gift boxes–dirt cheap. 

got home and felt scrappy, so i decided to cover one of the boxes with some supplies i had on hand.  i had wanted to make an “after holiday de-stress gift” for a friend at church, so i thought this would be perfect. 

here’s how:

  • all you need is either the top pc. of the box or the bottom
  • find some coordinating patterened paper
  • trace sides of box, to place inside
  • line sheets of paper with adhesive and carefully place against inside firmly
  • do the same with the inside bottom
  • next comes the outside and bottom, which is done the same way also
  • lastly comes any kind of embellishments that you might want to add.  i kept it simple.  i ran some ribbon thru my sticker maker and wrapped it around.  added some bling and a sentiment.  that’s it! 
  • used some coordinating tissue to cushion the items inside
  • since the theme is “after holiday de-stress”, i bought her favorite body wash, some super lotion, foot cream, a shower puff and of course some chocolate–starbucks–even better!

hope that makes sense! 

it was really easy, but if you have questions, feel free to contact me!
