christmas paper quilt and boxes

christmas boxes

So here it is! You had to know this was coming, right? I've been planning it for weeks and weeks. I kept changing my mind about some of the designs. In the end I think I accomplished what I wanted—something fun, contemporary and versatile. I wanted to include some boxes that can be used even after the holidays have come and gone.

I want to use the houses for a house warming gift or the stripes for a birthday with contrasting ribbon or something like that.

I always show my designs to the kids while I'm working on them. I like to do that because they point out  things that are so obvious and that I don't see because I've been so absorbed in the project. I was lucky that this time they saw exactly what I was hoping they'd see when I hung the Christmas Paper Quilt on the wall.

"Oh, you're working on Christmas!" = Perfect!

I have other holiday goodies coming but I really couldn't wait to unveil this one. I'm going to make small 3" box covers and putting them in this frame this weekend. I can't wait to see what it looks like!

You can find my Christmas Paper Quilt in the shop now!
[The shop is finally sporting my revised logo. I am my own worst client!]

  1. wow wow wow. stunning, as always, nice work patricia!

  2. So this morning I opened an email from Lettering Delights and who did I find in the email? YOU! What a surprise! =) And full of wonderful info and design as usual!

  3. Those are really nice designs... I'll try to install my craft robo then I'll be back to buy your patterns =)

  4. These are really lovely, so modern and clean looking. Love them with the coloured paper behind, it really sets the design off

  5. Such a neat idea. I love how clean the designs look

  6. LOVE! My favorites are the ornaments and the peppermint candy... it's just too bad that, being Jewish, I don't have much of a need for Christmas pretties!

  7. Wow!! I have been a fan of your work and ideas for a long time. I just looooove your work. You inspire me.

  8. The candy canes are genius! Way to go making regular shapes and objects new and fresh :)


  9. I love these, but I'm nervous about being able to do a good job cutting all the curved lines. Do you have any tips?

  10. Susan - It really isn't as difficult as it may seem. If you have a fresh blade and just take it slow it's very doable!
