Holiday Cards Challenge Week 2By
Welcome!! You’ve probably just arrived from Connie Babbert’s blog as you travel through our Week 2 Blog Hop for the Holiday Card “Create”tions session! What a GREAT session we are having all about CARDS!
At the end of each week during this session, the designers are putting together a blog hop to showcase some fun products in the Holiday Catalogue for you! It’s not too late to join this Holiday Card “Create”tion – just visit Create With Connie and Mary to sign up and view the card sets from week 1 and 2!
This week, we are experimenting with the Tiny Treat Boxes featured on page 10 of the Holiday Catalogue and designing a Christmas project. These little boxes are GREAT – I’ve got a thousand and one ideas for them already!! They are packaged as 25 boxes for $8.95 CAD.
As with each Saturday Blog Hop Challenge, the weekly Challenge is for everyone to see! Here’s what I made:
To make this 3 section treat box, I assembled three tiny boxes and cut the lid and top flaps from each one. I then adhered them together side by side with Sticky Strip. I added a 3/4″ x 12″ Early Espresso strip as a handle and added a button on each end.
To embellish the front of the treat box, I added a panel of Early Espresso cardstock and adhered a ripped piece of Whisper White to resemble snow. I cut three different size triangles from DSP and adhered to box. I cut additional small thin pieces of Early Espresso cardstock and added as tree trunks. I then attached another ripped piece of White over the trunks. Some rhinestone jewels were added to the smallest tree for a bit of glitter fun.
I created a special tag to accompany this box of treats using an acetate piece from the Seasonal Snapshot Project Life Accessory Pack I used to create last week’s challenge project. I cut it out with my 2 1/2″ circle punch and placed it in front of a Sahara Sand circle with some sequins in between. I created a Cherry Cobbler circle frame with my circle framelits and adhered the whole thing to a Deco Label cut from Garden Green. I attached the tag to the box with the new Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen Ribbon on page 7.
I hope my project has inspired you to give the new Tiny Treat Boxes a try for yourself!
