Cute Candy Box

 I love giving you new ideas for the holidays.  Today I have a cute little box that was very fun to make and will be great to fill with candy for gifts or for stocking stuffers.  This was created with the We R Memory Keepers "Candy Box Punch Board". If you like to create your own envelopes, boxes or gift bags, you are going to love how easy they are to create with the We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards. You will be amazed at how easy and how quick they are to create.  So far I have shown you the Envelope Punch Board, the Gift Box, Gift Bag and today the Candy Box.  There is one more I will be showing you very soon -- it is the Pillow Box Punch Board.  

 I used a piece of 12"  card stock to make a long box.  You need a piece of paper (or card stock) 7" wide and can make the length any where from 4 to 12 inches long, depending on how you want the box.  The board is very simple to use and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow.  If you are like me, you have lots of design paper or larger pieces of card stock you would like to use up, and this is such a great way to make something useful with it.

 I decided to decorate the top of my candy box with a few new items I had fun using, from Memory Box.  I stamped the sentiment on a tag then added the little snowmen using the "Mini Snowmen Dies".  These are tiny but so cute.  I used a very fine marker to draw in the face and scarves then glued on the hat, which I colored with a black marker. The Jingle Bells are very cute.  I cut them out of shiny gold card stock and added a die cut bow.   Below is a picture of both the "Jolly Jingle Bells" and "Mini Snowmen Dies" I used the Memory Box "Crisp Bows" to tie the Jingle Bells together.  These bows are also great for creating little packages with a bow on top.  Behind the tag I added two "Impression Obsession Pine Branch" die cuts.  

How are you doing getting all your Christmas cards and projects completed?   I have a good start, but still have lots to do.

Thanks for stopping by.
