A Christmas Casket for you to make.....

For Fun on a Snowy Daye.....

   If you are a lover of 17th c embroidery, or know of one who is, I have just the perfect project for a snowy winter afternoon for you~ a reproduction of a little 17th c embroidered paper for you to color and make up!  You can find the directions to it here : Thistle Threads Needlework Nibbles 

  It is for free, for you to make and give away~ please be kind and do not sell!  While you are over at Thistle Threads, check out the shop~ Tricia has oodles and oodles of wonderful threads and kits~ all sorts of wonderful Christmas gift ideas.  The original project is meant to just be a little box to sit on your sewing table, but I thought it prefect for the tree.  Its so very simple~ just print out the sheet on heavy card stock, color, cut, fold, paste and voi~la~ SO CUTE!
  This is the back view, I added my little wire loop for hanging here, and because it is a working box, I strung a little string thru the front lock hole to tie the top shut~ put little candies in here, or a special little gift~ theyre so much fun to make, I hope you enjoy!
