Guest Designer for 2 Creative Chicks - Christmas/Winter Challenge

Hi everyone.  Yay we are in December!  So that means that Christmas really isn't far away now, just 24 days to go.  Are you all organised?  I have to admit that all my Christmas shopping is almost done, all I have to do then is have a wrapping session :-)

Andy is home for the weekend, so we are having fabulous family time.  And before we know it he will be home for 10 days over Christmas :-)

Today I am a guest designer over at 2 Creative Chicks.

It's time for
another Challenge at

I decided to have a play with my Silhouette Cameo and I used the files from My Scrap Chick called Winter Paver Favor Boxes and Cards.  I have made two of the treat boxes from this file.

Aren't they adorable!

For the penguin, I inked around the box edges with some white ink, the white body with pale blue.  I popped up the bow tie on a foam dot and then added some bling to his buttons.  Doesn't he look ready to party?!

For the snowman, I inked around the box edges in blue, popped up his nose and added a bit of ribbon and some buttons.  I also ran the lid (before assembling) through my Cuttlebug, using the Swiss dots folder.

I so enjoyed making these, and they will be filled with treats for Christmas.

Hope you will go along and enter in the challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
