Holiday Treats

Remember when I told you we were going to our "family Christmas" on Saturday night? Well, I made 12 of these for my brothers, sisters, their spouses and my parents. As simple as the completed treat box is, when you have a bunch of them to do, they seem to take FOREVER! Stamping those custom label stamps from Papertrey Ink onto the labels made it much faster than it would have been! Could you imagine how much time it would have taken if I had to cut paper to wrap around each treat? Yikes! I used the Holiday Treats for this set. I just got the Limitless Labels set and cannot wait to use that one! As far as the box, one of the Try a New Technique Challenges a while ago on SCS was to make one of these treat boxes, but with an acetate sleeve so you could see the pretty treats! I didn't have time to do it at the time it was posted, but I kept it in the back of my mind because I loved that idea and wanted to do it eventually. Thanks for stopping by today! SUPPLIES USED: Stamps- Holiday Treats (Papertrey Ink); Paper- Soft Sky, Acetate, white Avery labels, Night of Navy; Ink- Night Sky, Aegean Blue (VersaMagic); Accessories- blue organdy ribbon (Darice), 1" and 1 1/4" circle punches.

These are gorgeous Charmaine.. Lucky family you have. Have a fun day with them. I am just starting to get a little crazy around here before all my family shows up. I think I might have to retreat to my studio to relax a little.
