Taylored Expressions Black Friday Blog Hop

It's Black Friday and in celebration, Taylor has organized a blog hop and asked us all to decorate the Perfect Package Card Box to fit a set of cards or to package a gift we are giving this holiday season.

I chose to use my box as packaging for a gift. What I decided to do was decorate my box to look like a candy cane. To do this, I cut a piece of red cardstock to fit the front of the box. I then cut it into 1/2" strips on a diagonal. I attached every other strip to the box to give that candy cane look. The last little touch was the thick, red ribbon and sentiment. I used a sentiment from the Tag Treats set.




I filled the inside of the box with the Ghirardelli Holiday Chocolate Assortment. Don't they look just delish? I HAD to try one and it WAS delicious! I only ate one though! (wink) :) I added another sentiment inside. This sentiment is from the Holiday Wonder set. This gift was SO easy to put together. You will LOVE these Perfect Packages!
