Crafty Advent - day 9

I really have tried to think "outside" of the box this year for the advent creation.
To try and give you something different to see and maybe even try.

Our fantastic sponsor today is 

They design some unique papers and have given us a whopping $25 voucher.

  Going back to my boxes..............I have been collecting these.

I do really mean collecting them.  I no longer go to the supermarket to buy a specific cheese.....
.....I pick the little wooden boxes I like then eat the cheese.
I must admit it has expanded my taste buds a bit as well as my nasal passages.

Have you ever had Pont l'eveque cheese? 
DO NOT put it in the boot of your car for a 8 hour ferry crossing.
We had a very aromatic drive back from Portsmouth!!!!!

Back to my creation, I like candles at Christmas but I never have any candle holders.
And putting them on a saucer somehow changes the atmosphere of a candle!

How about these...........

Yep just my cheese boxes.

I put a little decorative sand in the bottom just to keep everything stable.

I think they would be a conversation piece around the table, especially when you bring out the cheese board!
