My Time Made Easy - Season's Greetings!

Hello sweet friends and welcome!!  I have another little something adorable to share with ya' that I created recently for the December My Time Made Easy release!  Isn't the *new* Chair-ish template one of the cutest things you've ever seen??!!

 I cut out the template chair pieces from sturdy white card stock, and then cut the box piece using patterned paper from the Ga Ga For Gingham collection -- the red just seems so Christmas-y to me!  I filled my little box with four Lindt Truffle Chocolates ...

 ... and then secured the box closed by tying a length of aqua twill tape into a pretty bow!

 Among my favorite design elements are polka dots, gingham and scallops ... all those sweet scallops around this precious little chair just make me smile!

I created a pretty little decorative nosegay to add to the twill tape bow using a burlap flower, leaves, red berries, hemp cording and a sentiment tag from the *new* Christmas Swag stamp set ... adhering a wooden clothespin on the back of the nosegay for easy attachment to the bow without needing to glue it on.  This way the recipient can remove the nosegay without ruining the bow or box, and when the chocolates are removed, she can tie it back up and re-attach the nosegay -- to be used as a pretty holiday decoration in her home!  The gift that keeps on giving!!

Last, I created a miniature banner from chipboard pieces, button twine and a couple of paper flowers from Prima and strung it on the back of my chair - much like you would decorate the chairs around your dining table with swags and bows during the holidays!

Here is a picture of my dining room chairs with swags on them ... I keep them this way year round in my Victorian home!
