Moxie Fab's All Wrapped Up Challenge

Here it is, my first challenge-entry blog. I am so excited :) Even before blogging I followed the Moxie Fab World challenges, and would click through Mr. Linky to see what kind of great things Cath, the editor, had inspired people to make. I am really hoping to participate in the full week of holiday craft challenges & get a bit of a head start on Christmas creating. Here is the link to the contest post: Moxie Fab World All Wrapped Up Challenge in case you are interested in getting to work too - and look around, there is loads of good stuff on that blog!!
Anyhow, here is what I've got: mini pizza boxes, made with the easy-peasy Splitcoaststampers tutorial linked there. I made some of these last year, and I still really love the idea, so back out it came for the challenge. Bear in mind I am not a photographer!
Supplies: miscellaneous cardstock & ribbon; images all from My Mind's Eye

With so many people involved with the kids, it gets hard to know what to give everyone (and expensive) so gift cards are an easy way to go. Problem is, giving a gift card looks so insubstantial. Here, with the box, you can tuck in an ornament (which I'm going to show tomorrow, since gifts are the next Holiday challenge...) or even some chocolates, and there's a handy-dandy little envelope for your gift card inside the lid.

Supplies: same as above, plus plain white card stock (for gift card envelope)
 and a small bit of tissue to cushion the gift.  
The gift card really does tuck all the way into the envelope, but when I did that my photo stunk. See, not a photographer! I made a few of these with the card attached to the front of the box itself - hard to capture in a photograph, but anyway, here goes: 
Supplies: as above, plus the white card stock is embossed with a Cuttlebug folder
Then tie it shut with a ribbon (and even slide on a few jingle bells from the dollar store), and ta-dah! 
Now to get working on some of those ornaments to photograph tomorrow...
