Holiday Treat Box and an Award

For the Whimsy Stamps blog hop, please click HERE!

Good Morning!

Hope you're having a good's almost Friday! I have to say that I for one am looking forward to the weekend. It's been a long week with sick kids, school holidays, and lots to do around the house. I'm needing a break!

Today I have a creation to share that I made for my Paper Maniac DT work. All month long the design team will be sharing Holiday ideas using various products from the Paper Maniac store. This is my project for the's an acetate treat box!

I found the tutorial on Splitcoast, it was pretty easy to follow. I just had a bit of trouble getting my acetate to sit still while I scored and folded, slippery little thing! But once it was scored, I was able to stamp some snowflakes on one side and then I folded it up and made the box. I stamped my snowflakes in white Staz-on ink. If you wanted your treat box to keep the contents inside a secret, Paper Maniac carries a beautiful line of premium card stock in metallic and shimmer, I think they would be a beautiful alternative to acetate!

I've used Baja card stock and some SU! designer paper with a snowflake pattern. I've embellished with some eyelets and satin ribbon and then used a scalloped circle punch and a circle punch to do the sentiment on the front and top. The sentiment is from Whimsy Holiday Postmarks at Whimsy Stamps. I filled my box with some Dove chocolates...then I ate a bunch!

And before I leave you today, I wanted to share this fun award I received from my friend Deb. Thanks hun! I haven't gotten an award like this before and it was fun to answer!
