Lunar Eclipse and Gift Giving...

What better thing to do while you are trying to stay awake while waiting for a Lunar Eclipse?  Make gift boxes!  Of course!  First of all, check out this awesome shot I got of the eclipse by holding my camera up to a pair of binoculars:
Pretty awesome, isn't it?  My hands were shaking so hard in the cold that it was difficult to hold the camera steady.  But, it was very beautiful.  Now, on to crafting....

Using the Martha Stewart Score Board you can make some really cute gift boxes.  It's super easy too!  All the dimensions and where to score is included in her handy-dandy guide located inside the score tool storage area.  I used 2 sheets of 12x12 paper to make this box for a co-worker Secret Santa gift.  I then added a few embellishments to deck it out.  It's a great alternative to something different than a standard gift bag or christmas wrap.
