Little Christmas Boxes in a Fresh Christmas Colour theme for CTC#54

Well I was too late - actually too busy - to get my post ready for last week but I had made the little boxes for the markets so thought I would add them in to the mix anyway post production... There are some gorgeous projects in the CTC blogshop this week and I hope you have been able to get some inspiration.
I think Julia is right, they add a fresh take on classic Christmas colours.

I have done these little boxes as cards in the past for Easter, ( You can see them here) but they are so effective I thought I would do some for Christmas - and I had quite a few which sold at the Biloela Art and Craft Fair recently. They also look really effective hanging from a tree too.
TheTiny Treat Boxes are such good value at $12.25 for 25. You need to make a little bridge from Kraft card - the same way as you would if you were making a card-in-a box - and then just embellish away. You can do almost anything as long as you make sure it will still fit in the envelope when folded flat.

I have used the delightful Winter Wonderland Stamp set, Festival of Trees and its matching punch,  and a few retired dies- the perfect pennant die for the Mossy Meadow doily

Folded flat in the regular C6 envelope
I write the numbers on the flaps for instructions on how to assemble.

thanks so much for looking,

take care,
