3D Thursday

Tiny Merry Christmas treats for our Logos teachers.

The dp is from the DCWV Christmas stack. Merry Christmas stamped in silver on red rectangle is from Hero Arts. These little boxes are very easy. By leaving off the ribbon handles, they went together fairly quickly. I made 14 of them in a few hours.

Here is a group shot. My son said it looked like a little army of treat boxes lined up to attack.

Each box holds four peppermint patties turned on their sides or three if they're laying flat. I turned them sideways. This part is what took a bit longer - the holiday mix bag has red, green and silver wrappers. I wanted an even mixture of colors in the boxes. I also wanted both red and green scallops on the candies. After dividing two bags of Patties into three bowls and counting each color, I devised this strategy - red scallop on green wrapper, green scallop on silver wrapper, red scallop on silver wrapper, green scallop on red wrapper. I know there are shadows so you can't really tell in this picture, but trust me - each box is this way. OCD anyone? ;-P

Finally, the Christmas gifts for the two young ladies who watch the toddler so I can teach my Bible Study class.

The stocking is a My Timeless Templates download by Lauren Meader for Papertrey Ink. This is the Stocking Stuffer template which is a free download. The whole thing prints right onto your cardstock - stocking front and back, heel, toe, cuff, hanger, open-top box that's between the two stockings. Super easy! I am very impressed with this product and will definitely be getting more of Lauren's templates. I cut out the stockings and cuffs, taped them on the DCWV Christmas paper I wanted, then cut them out again. I thought this black and pink combo was fun for teens. Inside is a bottle of Pink Sugar shower gel, some mini pb cups, and peppermint patties.

Today I am grateful for: eating snowman Peeps between stops while running errands with the kids, having the funds to bring home a van full of food from the store, no tangle spray for my daughter, playing in the chilly sunshine, and hot chocolate to warm up with
