A Festive Little Christmas Treat Box

Hi everyone!  Julia here posting a sweet little Christmas Treat Box for you today!  I purchased this little oval wooden box at Michaels and cut patterned papers to fit the top and sides.  I glued them on with Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive (love that stuff it dries SO fast! I get mine at Michaels).

 Then I adhered some delicate narrow lace (from Joanne's) around the rim of the cover with Scor Tape letting it extend below the cover edge.  I overlayed that with this pretty plaid ribbon, again using Scor Tape.
 I stamped the sentiment and cut it out using a Trio Label from Spellbinders.  I popped that up with foam tape along the front of the box and added some rhinestones.
Then I stamped Rhubarb, colored him with Copics and popped him on the box cover with foam tape.  This sweet little box is about 2" x 3" and will fit maybe 10-12 Hershey Kisses -  or you could use it for a gift of barrettes, jewelry (!), or any small treat!

A pretty way to give a small gift to someone don't you think??!

Thanks for stopping by the Sweet 'n Sassy blog today!

hugs,
Julia
