Christmas Treats

I know Christmas is still a few months away, but it is never too early to get a jump start on thinking ahead to what you will be making and giving.  I will be making several different gift boxes and bags for craft fairs and to give out to family and friends as well.

I made this gift box using the Box #2 Bixg xl Die and the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.  The pretty paper is from the Holiday Mini Catalog and it is called Candy Cane.  This paper is full of glittery designs and coordinates with the Candy Cane fabric also offered in the mini catalog.  I punched a hole in the box and inserted a window sheet so you could see the treats inside.  The saying is from Tags til Christmas which is a great stamp set that coordinates nicely with so many of the Stampin' Up! punches.

To make today's gift box I used the following:
Cardstock:  Candy Cane #120809 (Holiday Mini)
Stamp Set:  Tags til Christmas #120847 wood mount or #121169 clear mount (Holiday Mini)
Ink:  Real Red #103133
Punch: Scallop Square #110994
Accessories:  Big Shot Die Cutting Machine #113439, Box #2 Bix xl Die #114518, Extended Cutting Pads #113478, Window Sheets #114323
Ribbon:  Real Red 1/4" Grosgrain #109034
