Knitted Baubles

I saw these on this website and they made me smile, now I know exactly what to do with my wool oddments.

Mini Sizzix Boxes – Place Settings?

Mini boxes
I have had the dies for these boxes for a couple of years and to be honest, haven’t really used them much because they are quite small and fiddly to make.

But I thought I would have another little play with them…..
They are both Sizzix Thick Cut Dies - “Purse” and “Carry All Box”, which looks like a tiny toolbox.

I was thinking that they could be used as place settings for a dinner party and as Christmas nears, I have decorated them with snowflake punchies.  The name tag is also a punchie, which I have handwritten.

I am a bit  stuck for something to put in the boxes as they are quite small. I think you could fit one “Celebrations” chocolate in the tool box and a small chocolate coin in the handbag. I also thought that K and Co “Proverbs to Go”  could be folded up and popped inside.
Of course they could also be used as Christmas tree decorations.
