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 bloghop this week and I hope you have been able to get some inspiration. You can find the full list of design team members and links to their posts here.
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. Unfortunately I didn't get a photo of all of them before I went. They also look really effective hanging from a tree too.
The Tiny 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

thanks so much for looking,
