Christmas Card Club #17: Anything But A Card

Hello, friends. Are you enjoying the weekend? It's warm and sunny here... at last. The perfect weather for Christmas projects! LOL. Anywho, it's time for another Christmas Card Club show and tell session. Our hostess is the lovely, the talented Lizze and her theme of choice for the fortnight is "Anything But A Card".

I made a little box to house half a dozen yummy delights. These treats are perfect little gifts for friends and colleagues. I have a few made up to give way to anyone who drops in over the festive season. 

The box measures 3.5"x 2.25" x 1". The image and sentiment are from
WMS Nutcracker Sweet. I coloured it with Graph'It and Promarkers.
To secure the lid I used some green-red-white twine by Doodlebug.

I cut the edges of the lid with a scallop die.  A little peek inside... yummers!
Taking my box of goodies to these challenges:


And here's a list of the rest of the Christmas Card Club girls. They are a super talented bunch, so be prepared for a inspiration overload!

Karen P ... Maureen ... Margaret ... Carol ... Lizzie ... Hazel ... Karen B ... Sue P ... Sylvie ...
Sue J ... Zoë ... Christine ... Mary ... Lorraine ... Rita ... Rachel ... Valery ... GranMargaret ... Kate

Thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and have fun in the sun!

Beijinhos!

  3. This is such a gorgeous little box Asha - Lurve the bright green with the red and I lurve that image too! I've seen this one but I like it even more now that I've seen it on a project. As for the choccies, well Blossom and I would be pleased to test them - I would test the choccies and Blossom would test the papers, once I had screwed them into a ball for her to play with!

    Big hugs to you and a mwah from Blossom to Mr. Richard P.
