Happy Sunday, peeps! It's time for a color challenge at the Paper Players, with Laurie as our hostess!
I was thrilled to see this color combo, because it let me play with SU's pretty Presents and Pinecones DSP....which I resisted getting for a while, but so glad I gave in! I chose to make a couple of treat boxes and a simple card:
We'll start with the card! I was really just sort of playing around with the leafy images from Foxy Friends, thinking about how they could be turned into a wreath, and it didn't turn it too badly, so I went with it! I curved the larger frond into a semi-circle and stamped it in Emerald Envy, then added the smaller frond over top in Mint Macaron. I added a few red glimmer paper embellishments (Pretty Pines thinlits) and the last little red pearls from my Stitched with Love card kit. Final touch was a red bow, some speckles (Itty Bitty Backgrounds) and a sentiment from Christmas Pines:
Next up is this adorable triangle treat box! I just love this and it is easy to make. I found the directions HERE. I made my box with Mint Macaron and Presents & Pinecones DSP and liberally decorated it with embellishments from Pretty Pines, some offset Stitched Shapes circles, a banner (Oh What Fun) and some beautiful Emerald Envy ribbon:
Check out those double-layered pinecones in Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper!
And here's the inside (no candy yet!), which I decorated with a sentiment from Oh What Fun:
Finally, SU has these cute little clear treat boxes, so I simply wrapped some polka dotted DSP from a couple of years ago around the center, added a sentiment and some holly (Stitched with Cheer) and filled it up with some mints:
I wrapped the top with the Candy Cane Lane baker's twine and added some of the little bells SU has in the holiday catalog...another level of sweetness!
I hope you'll play along with our fun holiday colors and be sure to check out what the other designers created at the Paper Players!
Well, it finally happened! After hanging by a thread, Cassidy, with the help of some gum, lost her other front tooth:
I've been singing "All I Want for Christmas is my Two Front Teeth" all weekend long! Enjoy your day!
