*NEW* Mistletoe, Tinsel, and Jingles

My three very favorite old-fashioned Christmas decorations are Mistletoe, Tinsel, and Jingle Bells. What better way to honor these fanciful and festive fripperies, but with their very own storage boxes, which in and of themselves are quite decorative.

Don’t let the finishing of these items scare you away! If you know how to wield a pot of glue and some fabric scissors, your job is nearly finished for you. Hopefully the included instructions are clear enough that you can duplicate my models. But if not, I plan to have a video tutorial completed very soon for you to watch the process happening in real time. Get your stitching done, gather up your needed materials, and head on over to YouTube to create your very own set of festive Christmas storage boxes.
