Uummmm, how do I get in on this?!?! I want brown paper packages tied up with string to open every night leading up to Christmas! Then a few months ago an email showed up in my inbox from Eva asking if I really did want to participate - heck yes please!! 

Fast forward to November: 25 gals made 25 of one "present", we sent them all back to Eva, she re-distributed them, and sent them back to us, so we each got 25 unique presents - one to open every night of December until Christmas. Here are the little pillow boxes I made using mostly older Elle's Studio supplies:

I found a little tin to put them all in and was too lazy to put it in a cute set up scene, so instead you get a glimpse into my home:

And then I put them all on white foam board for a nice photo and so you can see them all ;)
