Handmade Christmas Table Place Settings


Thought I would have a go at making some place settings this year for the table and seeing as there was only going to be three of us this year they did not take too long.
I found this box template on the Internet and then adapted the size to take some pre-wrapped chocolates.
Using scrapbook paper I drew round the template which I printed out on plain paper and then cut them out.
Add a chocolate or two then fold round three of the flaps and tuck in the fourth.
I made tags for the place names and attached using present ribbon.
The tag and the top of the boxes were sealed with a piece of clear tape and the ribbon was then
curled using scissors and Ta Da, handmade place settings.
This box could be adapted to any occasion really and was fun to make.

This post will be added to the Christmas Ideas tag at the top of this blog for future use.

Take care.

What a terrific idea, Andrea - so nice for little take-home treats if you have guests. Hope you had a lovely Christmas; the two of us did and we'll be doing it all over again mid-January when our daughter Rosy comes to visit from China (might have to make some of those boxes!) Happy New Year to you and your family.
