More Twelve Days of Christmas

Hi, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and about to have a very Happy New Year!

Here are some boxes that hold 12 miniature Hershey candy bars that I made using Regina's The Cutting Café's Candy Box.

I made a bunch of each of these to sell as Christmas favors or gifts for people to buy. My finance's mother owns a cut your own Christmas Tree Farm, so every year we go up to help out and she suggested that I bring some of my stuff to see if it will sell. I did sell a few...not including the ones she bought. ;p

Here's a picture of us getting our freshly cut tree:

I had made a couple of these boxes last year for myself to give as dinner favors and gifts to friends and colleagues.

Regina's boxes are always fun to work with and with this particular box there also comes templates to cut out the candy wrappers if you want to use them to cover the Hershey wrappers to make it more custom.

So here they are...

This paper is gorgeous, huh? It's from SEI in their Alpine Frost collection (glitter stack):

I went a little Americana on this set (paper from DCWV The Fall Stack 2007):

I really like this music paper I got in a stack from My Mind's Eye "Festive & Frost" Short Stack with Glitter:

Other materials:
CS: Bazzill Basics: "Tropical", "Capers" and "Mocha Divine"

Fluid Chalk Inks: Colorbox "French Blue", "Celadon" and "Olive"
Punches: Cuttlebug Ice Crystal Die & Embossing Combo and MS Alpine Snowflake
Cricut Cart: JOTS for the Holly cut at 1 1/2"
Misc: Red Rhinestones, Red Ribbon, Adhesive
