You never know when you might need a little Christmas gift. Here’s one I finished up today. I filled it with candy cane kisses. I used a template for a trapezoid box that I picked up from Mirkwood Designs. She has a bunch of neat templates there, although I found the trapezoid shape to be somewhat annoying for putting a band around the middle since the sides aren’t perpendicular. I knew this when I decided to use this template, but it didn’t dawn on me until I was getting ready to adhere the snowflake band. That’s why you see a slight gap at the edges. I made this little gift with three challenges in mind: All That Scraps Weekly Wednesday Challenge #57 which is all about gift ideas, Paper Pretties challenge to use punches, and Pink Elephant Challenge #90 to make a winter wonderland card/project/layout. If you haven’t noticed, I’m really digging the Baja Breeze/Whisper White/Real Red color combo for Christmas projects. Maybe you’ll see some projects in a different color combo, but no promises.
