Merry treat box

Whoo! Hoo! It's Friday!

Here's a little treat box I made for my Stampin' Up! November Artisan challenge. SU sent all the Artisan Award winners the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit and asked us to create something using it, so this is what I came up with. I thought the colors would work with some peppermints, so luckily I found a few kinds at Walgreens up on the top shelf (this is before Halloween since the projects were due earlier).

I used the Big Shot and the Fancy Favors Bigz XL die. Don't you love that top edge of the box? I didn't want to cover it up, so I added a paper ruffle (just folded paper over) and glued it to the inside of the box with sticky strip tape. The ornament is one of the repositionable die-cut stickers, and I cut the "merry" off of one of the greetings. Easy peasy! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Okay, off to school! We've been doing a farming unit and today we're making corn husk dolls and planting corn, should be fun. We're a little off season, so wish us luck! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

Edited to add: These are the candies from Walgreens that I used, click the photo for link:

I couldn't find these peppermint sticks on the Walgreen's website, probably because they are seasonal, but click the photo for the manufacturer website:

Stamps: none
Cardstock: Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit
Accessories: Big Shot, Fancy Favors Bigz XL die, Sleigh Bell ribbon, Linen Thread, Old Olive Playground button.
