Merry Little Labels Week Project 3 Giant drop sided Box

  So how about a couple of Giant Drop sided gift boxes?  I have sized these to accommodate either the large Yankee Candle Jar Candles or the Wickford large jar candle. I love the Classic Christmas colour combo of Red ang Green – in this case Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive – but you could just as easily use Real Red and Garden Green.  Just choose the card to co-ordinate with your paper.  The Merrly little Labels fits perfectly in this oval and the ‘Just for You’ makes a simple but effective tag.

On to the measurements….
