Candy Box/ Bag

Its to cold and windy down here in Gosport to go out today so I decided to stay in the warm and craft I have just made this little sweetie box , its the first time I have made a box but I really enjoyed making it and think I will make some more as little stocking fillers to fill with sweets and small gifts and I think they would be nice on the Christmas dinner table as well
I decorated the box with die cuts I cut with the Santa Quickutz die and the little candy canes are cut out by the Cricut machine (before I sold it) I made 2 holes with the big bite tool and just threaded ribbon to keep the box closed.
I have entered my candy box/bag into the following challenges
Allsorts challenge For a child
One stop craft Challenge Gift Bag
The Secret Saturday Challenge any of the 4 seasons

Hi Susie

Very wise staying in, the weather is just the same up here in the Fens.

Love your little sweet box and agree it would be great for the Christmas dinner table.

Thank you for joining us at Allsorts this week.

Lovely bag,Susie....and it certainly is a day for staying indoors crafting.

Julia Dunnit said...

Oh it's sweet. (geddit!) I've been crafting most of the day too, why the weather stops me doing housework is a mystery....

Hi Susie

A brilliant make.

So neat and well made. (Note I have resisted the temptation to use the word "sweet" LOL!!!).

I think they would be brilliant on the Christmas table.

Thank your for playing along with Allsorts again this week.

Love Jules xx
