Christmas gift boxes

Last Tuesday our card making group had our Christmas party at Joyce's.  We each make little gifts to share with each other.  
But the friendship that we share is the best gift of all!
Oh, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the food.
That's pretty darn good, too!
Jean brought the best soup*!

I made a bunch of little Christmas boxes and filled them with truffles. Within seconds, one side of the table had already popped one in their mouths, while a few showed more restraint.  

Mix It Up Challenge #8 - Fancy Fold 
Brown Sugar Challenge #273- Anything But a Card 
Bitten By The Bug Challenge - Boxes, Bags, Treat Embellishments 
Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - It's Christmastime  (I used a cuttlebug to emboss the bow.)
