The Magic of Christmas

Last time we visited my brother-in-law, he gave me the cutest picture ever of my two and a half year old husband visiting Santa. I don't think I can adequately convey how much I love that photo. I needed a way to display it each year, and this is what I came up with. See how Santa is instructing him not to reveal the secrets of Christmas? It's the cutest!

The box is a wooden cigar box. It seemed the perfect size. I covered the back and sides with paper, and ran some red ribbon around the edge of the front. The Tim Holtz tag reads "believe in the magic of Christmas". Perfect! I planted three bottle brush trees at the bottom, added a vintage dancing Santa to the top, and strung up some miniature Christmas lights.

I toyed with the idea of covering the back, but it won't usually show, and I like the fact that it's stamped with information about the cigars, one of my husband's infrequent guilty pleasures.

The hubby wasn't sure about the disk with "24" on it, but that's when Santa arrives: on Christmas eve! I'll enjoy using this as one of my Christmas decorations this year. Ho ho ho!
