Very interesting info.. I'd love to know how she makes those boxes.

I'm interested!

Making those boxes sounds like a good plan. I would like to learn how also. What kind of necklace did your daughter make for you? I made, using different beads, Christmas bracelets for my family and for the grandchildren of a neighbor. Hope you had a wonderful day, yesterday. We are having rain today; I guess you are having some white fluff. Your Boxing Day information was very interesting. I knew about the UK, but not the other areas.

Tipper,
I don't do too much gift wrappin'
anymore, but if Chatter has the
time, I'd like to know how to make
boxes too.

When I first saw the title on today's topic, I thought to myself
"Why in the world is Tipper talking about Price Fighting?"

I learned how to make tiny, tiny boxes from a greeting card several years ago. Would love to see how your dauaaghter makes them.

What a lovely gift your daughter gave you. I would love to see how the boxes are made.

I would like to see how those little boxes are made. I could probably make one but, no way I could make several and they would nest inside another. Also, I would like to see what one of those necklaces looks like.

Merry Christmas to the Blind Pig family and all the Acorns a day late! Just have power back and we are expecting up to 10 inches of snow by tonight. So, we would love to learn how to make these boxes because we'll be snowed in for a little while!Thank you Tipper, your blog is a special gift to all of us!!

I got a necklace for Christmas in one of those boxes Chatter made. They are lovely and.....she taught me how to make them!

When I was a teen, I read Regency romances. I heard of Boxing Day there and investigated its meaning. Guess reading those books served some purpose after all. Your daughter did a great job with the boxes. They are lovely. I would like to learn how they are made for my grandsons would enjoy making them in more masculine colors. Keep warm on this blustery day.

Tipper,
Tell your sweet daughter, that I would love to see how see makes those boxes. I could see putting a small present in the last box and nesting together and wrapping them all.
I wonder if her way could be adapted to heart shaped boxes for Valentine's Day?
Thanks Tipper, I have read about boxing day, and don't know anyone who celebrates the day. There are a lot of folks that give food boxes in our area before Christmas as well as toy boxes.

Indeed, those little nesting dolls are beautiful. I'll bet the boxes go back as far as the dolls. But I will refrain from signing up to make the beautiful boxes! HAPPY BOXING DAY!

I would love to learn. What a sweet gift!

aha! I got to give Boxing Day wishes to my Irish friends yesterday (they are visiting Australia so were 16-17hours ahead of us). Love to see a demo of the boxes.

I would love to know how to make those boxes!!

cool looking boxes and indeed Chatter should do a demo---hope you and the blind pig gang are able to continue to be blessed during this season of the year.

Thanks for the information. I'd always assumed that Boxing Day was about people beating one-another's brains out. I'm happy to know otherwise! lol

Interesting story, I did not realize what 'boxing day' was. I am an avid reader of old English mysteries I always thought it was a day off for the servants of the manor house. Something new everyday.

Can I sign up? I would love to know how to make those sweet little boxes. They remind me of the Russian nesting dolls. At least I think that is what they are called.
