CCMC Holiday Card "Create"tions Blog Hop Week 2

Hello everyone! The Create with Connie and Mary Cards "Create"tions has come to the end of week 2. We are doing a blog hop at the end of each week to close the week out and give everyone a sneak peek of the set that we used during the week. You may have just come from Debbie's blog. She always has a beautiful project to inspire us all! For the end of week 2 we are showing you ways to use the Tiny Treat Boxes that are in the Holiday mini catalog. Here's what I did with mine!

I used the dots stamp from the Festival of Trees set to stamp the outside of the box using the Whisper White craft pad. This stamp is actually used to decorate the tree stamp but I thought it could look like snow on the box! Then I decided to make a simple tag. My tag seems kind of oversized for this cute little box but I couldn't resist. I made a tag from Whisper White card stock and rounded the top of it using the 1 3/4" circle punch then I ran it through the Big Shot using the En Pointe embossing folder. I stamped the tree image from Festival of Trees using Pear Pizzazz ink onto Whisper White and punched it out with the coordinating Tree punch. I stamped the "to/from" onto the tree using Mossy Meadow ink and then adhered the tree to the tag with dimensionals. I threaded some white baker's twine through a gold basic metal button and adhere it to a folded piece of Natural 5/8" Chevron ribbon and then adhere it to the tag. I adhere the tag to the top of the box making sure it would still be easy to open the box. 

I love how you get a lot of boxes in a package! So many fun things to do with these cute little things! So now I send you on to Connie's blog to see what fun idea she has come up with!! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
