Holiday Hop - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Caardvarks Holiday Hop sponsored by Creative Cuts & More. Today is all about pretty packaging. I think it's so much fun to give a gift that is just as pretty on the outside as the gift inside. For my project, I used the Oval Window Box from Creative Cuts & More to create a little candy box. I put a piece of acetate behind the window and stamped some snowflakes. I love how it gives you just a little peak at what's inside.
SUPPLIES: Die Cut - Creative Cuts & More Oval Window Box; Stamps - Papertrey Ink Polka Dot Basics, Hero Arts Holiday Sayings, Hero Arts Winter's Butterfly; Patterned Paper - Bo Bunny; Ink - ColorBox Chalk Lime Pastel, VersaFine Vintage Sepia, StazOn Cotton White; Ribbon - Michaels; Hero Arts Acetate Notecards
Your next stop on the Holiday Hop is Stephany! Thanks for stopping by and for all the sweet comments...it just makes my day! :) Be sure to come back tomorrow for the final day of the Hop!
