I like to make things in advance for Christmas and when I was on Julie Buhler’s website I came across a tutorial for a really sweet treat box. I just had to make it and I thought I would use the new Jolly Holiday DSP. For the treat boxes, I followed Julie’s instructions, but because I don’t have a Stampin Up cozzule I used the Fiskars Oval template to make the oval cut out on the dsp and the card stock. I also decided to use the Scallop Trim border for the lid of the box and I made an acetate window with the Sizzix Oval die. To finish off the Old Olive treat box I used the Contempo Christmas ornament and Old Olive ribbon. For the Early Espresso box I made a Christmas Owl Elf, by making an Elf hat using the butterfly punch and dressing him in a combination of Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive. The pom-pom on the hat is one of the eyes that was cut out from the Very Vanilla Owl that I punched. I finished off the box with Early Espresso ribbon.
