Tiny Treat Basket

Have you seen these adorable little treat holders that Cambria makes? The first time I saw them, I thought they were the most darling little things! Then when Cambria's tutorial came out yesterday, I HAD to make one! It was really very simple, so give it a try! Even though it's warm again here today, I made a "winter" treat basket since it's been so cold and I thought it would go well with the peppermint patties! :) I added some Liquid Applique around the top edges of the box to look like snow and stuffed the box with some filler. The stamps are from the Snowflake Kisses set by Paper Pretties. Such a cute Penguin! Thanks for stopping by today! Hope you're having beautiful weather too! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Snowflake Kisses (Paper Pretties); Paper- Blue Bayou, Whisper White (SU), yellow, patterned paper (DCWV); Ink- Palette Noir; Accessories-Copic markers, 1 1/4", 1 3/8" circle punches, scallop punch, horizontal slot punch, Liquid Applique, double stitched ribbon in Blue Bayou, snowflake brads.

Charmaine, you think of everything, girl! I would have never thought of using a portion of the Snowflake Kisses penguin for the medallion! Very clever and creative!
