Quilt With Us

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus…and I've got gift boxes ready and waiting! Okay so the holidays might be my favorite time of the year. And this might only be August, but the holidays are right around the corner.

 

These cute little boxes are actually the Merry Mini Ornament pattern gone wild. I used our Merry Mini fabric collection, I think they would look great in solids or whatever matches your décor. They could be ornaments but I'm going to hide goodies in them.

 

I started by making two in the 2" size detailed in the pattern and then I went crazy. The largest I made was a 4" cube. That will be for my little boy, I think the 2" size is perfect for a chocolate or diamond ring (hint hint). I guess I can find something for my husband and stuff it in the 2-1/2" size, and a dog treat will fit nicely in the 3", so that just leaves the other 2" size to be filled with cat treats, and the whole family is taken care of. Now I'll just have to hang them high enough on the tree to stop the dog and cat, husband and baby boy from getting to them early! Every year, because we'll be reusing these as tree ornaments, table decoration, on the mantle…I may even make one as a sewing kit for myself!

 

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus…

 

PS. If you wanted to make a 3" box, look at the pattern and the T shape will measure 9" across the top, and 13" tall. That's 1" of tab, and then 4 x 3" of sides. Enjoy!

those are soo (seww) cute!  You might want to reconsider hiding cats treats on the tree... cats have been known to climb Christmas trees; thankfully, ours are content to just nap under ours when it's up :).
