A special 12 Days of Christmas gift...

My regular blog readers may remember that I didn't plan for an Advent Calendar... but a Gin-vent calendar for myself instead.. well I did that... using small jam jars that suited the job perfectly... and I LOVED the experience during the whole of December...
So I decided that I needed to share the experience... so I came up with the idea of a 12 Days of Christmas gift box along the same theme...
So this one is a 12 Ports of Christmas box... which went down incredibly well with my family and friends... unfortunately I couldn't go with 12 different ports... but they each got 4 port trios... so all were happy...
I also had to keep the box simple and flat in design... well my brother will have to carry it back to the States in his suitcase... so I couldn't go too mad!!
Now some of you will have noticed that this box is decorated with retired papers... there is a GOOD reason for that.... come back tomorrow and I will spill the beans...
And of course the 12 Days of Christmas stamps are also retired... so so glad I kept those!
