Countdown to Christmas ~ Wk 6

Hi there,

Sorry for not blogging for a while, a combination of sickness and injury within my household through out my schedule, the good thing is that I've been working on a few projects that I will be sharing with you over the next few days and I've got the tutorial for the box I shared HERE

This week my countdown to Christmas share is a few little fun items and, after all, it's the little things that really help make Christmas special.

It's a little box made using the Petal Card punch and as you can see from the photo, it's just big enough for a Lindor chocolate - yum!  I've only made one but I will make more nearer the time and hang them on the tree.  Unfortunately, I used 'Jolly Holiday' Designer Series Paper, (DSP), which has now sold out  :o(
I'm really going to miss this paper but the new collection comes out on Saturday - yay!

The next little item I'm sharing today is another little treat holder, whilst it's still small it's defiantly bigger then the first item!

For this one I didn't use Christmas paper at all, but the 'Celebrations' DSP as I wanted to show that you don't have to have specific Christmas paper to make something Christmasy, you just have to add a few Christmasy touches.

Here I have stamped snow flakes and a 'Merry Christmas' sentiment onto a label and no one would notice it's not Christmas paper, I also used the Crimper, (which was a present from my son for my birthday),  on each end to give it a more finished look.

... and the little goodie that is hiding inside this little treat package ...

Mint chocolate - YUM!

Hope you like these little treat ideas, please pop back tomorrow when I will post my box tutorial.

Until then, ....  xx
