Goodie boxes

Happy Friday! I don't know about you but two snow days in the same weeks makes for some great time hanging out sledding, movies and hot chocolate. YUM!!!  Wednesday night we had a bunch of snow dumped on us and even work was cancelled. GASP!  What fun we had sledding... Back to school today for everyone though. Now I can get all my goodies baked and put into these boxes. The Power and Spark challenge this month is Sweet Treats. Perfect time for me to get these boxes done for our friends. Hope you can play along. You can check it out HERE on the PP Blog. 

All three boxes are very similar in design using Spice It Up for the sentiment. The tiny sprigs of holly are from Heaven and Nature Sing stamp set. These are super easy boxes to make using the Cookie Box tutorial. I die cut the sentiment panel using Matted circles die layered onto a Elegant Oval die cut. This first box has Peaceful Poinsettia's die cut and layered on the corners with some green sprigs and brown flourished die cuts. The designer paper is from the Holly Jolly paper pack. Sparkle added to the flourishes on the paper and all around. Finished it off with some sequins.  


This one has paper from the same pack with poinsettias in the corners as well. Instead of sequins a few random jewels but similiar in design. 


My final box I used some Hollyberries I had left over from a print or two ago and colored them up. Then I cut around them again to pop them up on the box front. I have the same paper pack on this one and more sequins and sparkles. Voila! I bake up some goodies each year and this year they will have a pretty box to hold them. The goodies never last long but they sure will enjoy the box after I hope.  :-)

Thank you for a beautiful gift box idea. I always like to make gift packages appear more special and this would do it. I can see how it would be easy to use this for many occasions!

Stacy, these delicious decorated boxes are as special as the gift inside. Great idea and one that I will be storing away for next year. Thanks! My cookies are baked and packed or eaten for this year.

Beautiful boxes, Stacy! You'll be delivering goodies in style. Your holly stamps look so good with the papers. I cannot believe how real the berries look on the third box. Happy holidays!
