It's as easy as A-B-C!

It’s Monday, and we have a treat for you!! This week’s challenge for our Woodware USA design team is ANYTHING BUT A CARD (A-B-C)! This really is a challenge for me each time that we do it. I get into the card rut, so I seldom venture out into the world of “other things.” Today, I did!

I have a box that came in a pack of six from Martha Stewart Crafts. It is designed to hold treats (brownies, bars, cookies, etc.), so I decided to jazz it up a bit. I tend to give more treats around the holidays, so I made this for Christmas. I kept the stamping simple, but I loved that I could assemble the phrase “we wish you a Merry Christmas” through stamps in the set called Traditional Christmas Greetings. It is a great all purpose set, and it gives you a large amount of greetings, both religious and secular.

I used a set of paper from My Mind’s Eye called Colorful Christmas, and it is adorable…so glad that I had some left over from last year because this box took up a lot! The box is almost 9 inches square, and the depth is 2 ½ inches. The ribbon is Purely Pomegranate satin ribbon from Stampin’ Up.

See you tomorrow!! Stay tuned for more awesome samples from the design team this week!
