Lots of Boxes

This last week I was busy making boxes. 120 of them. Yesterday was the annual Women's Easter Brunch for the ladies at my church. It is always a fun and meaningful event to begin this Holy Week.
I started by cutting card stock and Designer Series Paper into 6" x 6" squares and used the Envelope Punch Board to punch & score each piece. I got the instructions from UK Demonstrator, Sam Donald

Here they all are. Whew!

 All pretty on the table.

With a gift for each attendee.

Each table is decorated by the table hostess with her own china and glassware. Here are just a few of them...

 Do you see the 3 goldfish in this centerpiece?

Each table hostess usually adds a small favor for her guests. Look what I got! This was actually made by my friend Hayley who is an avid scrapbooker and paper crafter, she is also blind. Yes, blind. She was discussing making these with our hostess Jan a few weeks ago at the end of our Bible Study and turned toward where I had been sitting to ask if the scarf she was wearing was Tempting Turquoise! It was! Others at the table laughed, especially when I told her that our tablecloth was Daffodil Delight. :) Her dear husband assists her with final assembly and Jan added some yummy candies. It is a beautiful box.
