Christmas Holly Treat Box

 This week I have a Christmas Treat Box. I started with the CottageCutz "Elegant Favor Box" die. I added the mini scalloped circle die and than used the New CottageCutz "Mistletoe & Holly" die.
 As you can see I cut the holly twig into smaller snips of holly to decorate the four sides of the box. Using different holly leaves each time.I tinted the Scallop circle with red and green ink for a shadow edge. I tied the top of the treat box with white ribbon and tinsel yarn. Than added a full twig of holly into the bow.
The Cottage Cutz "Elegant Favor Box" die came out with the Cottage Cutz Wedding Collection of dies, but as you can see it can be used for any event. The scroll design on the box is universal. The New Cottage Cutz "Mistletoe and Holly" die has two twigs that can be cut separate or gathered together to create a cluster of greens. You can fill the box with candies, or small little gifts for the office. The box is a 3" x 3" square cube with a domed top so the box measures 5" high. A lot of room! They would also make cute favors at each place setting at the Christmas table, a hang tag could be the persons name.

Thanks and hope everyone has a bountiful and filling Thankgiving. . . . . . . .  .Barry
