Christmas Treats

I have been busy completing orders for Christmas Treats during the past few weeks. I used the exclusive Stampin' Up! Mini Milk Carton die, changing the colours and decorations to suit the themes and colours for each order, filled with chocolates, sweets or after dinner mints.

This is a set made with in Pear Pizazz and Very Vanilla, the box was die cut and then embossed with the polka dots folder, I wrapped some First Edition DSP around  and tied a gorgeous Very Vanilla satin bow, adding a Gold "snowflake" punched from the new 3-step punch with a "merry" from the Tiny Tags stamp set and of course punched with the matching punch. These boxes were given a spritz of twinkling shimmer mist made with the  Champagne  shimmer paint mixed with alcohol in a fine spray bottle, the mini clip is also a Stampin' Up! product.

The next box is from a set of 6 made with Basic Grey card, spritzed generously with Champagne shimmer mist and stamped with the Serene Snowflakes stamp set in Craft White ink.  The bows are tied with the gorgeous Whisper White satin/taffeta ribbon, and the "snowflakes" punched with the 3-step punch using Shimmery White card, the top ones were covered with Dazzling Diamonds and for a little sparkle a rhinestone was added to the centre of them.

 Here is one of the fun "Santa" boxes, made with Real Red card and the Tags Till Christmas stamp set.

Unfortunately I didn't manage to get all of my boxes photographed before they were collected, I mostly used the Stampin' Up! exclusive Mini Milk Carton die, I think this has to be one of my "best buy's" so far from this Stampin' Up! catalogue.  These little boxes are so easy to decorate in so many different ways, and of course can be filled with all kinds of sweets and chocolates.

Lovely little milk cartons Angela, I have been in love with my cracker die lately but this has inspired me to dust off the milk carton again, thanks :-)
Merry Christmas!
