Wahooo! Another "something other than a card" production for me! I guess this is what happens to me around the holidays. Having little packages of things to give is FUN and thoughtful, and they don't have to break the bank.
I bought these clear pillow boxes from Clear Envelopes. They have a variety of sizes, and come with little round circle sticker seals. I *love* them! I'm going to be using them more and more often. They're a snap to put together since they're already cut and glued. All you have to do is give the sides a little squeeze, fold in the end flaps, and you're all set! The size I chose was 3x1x5, item #PB76 without the optional hangtag.
I picked up a package of YUMMY soft licorice last time I was at Target. I'm surprised I had enough to fill this pillow box, because the licorice is THAT good! But I had this project in mind, so I was "good".
I've seen Snowman Poop and Reindeer Poop holiday goodie bags, and wanted to create something similar without having to include any sort of "poop" poem. I think this project is just a bit more subtle, too, which I like.
The "Reindeer Delivery Handle with Care" sentiment is from my Whipper Snapper set called North Pole Post. After I had this all put together, I thought of stamping the clear pillow box with the reindeer hoof print that's also included in the set, but didn't want to take apart the entire ensemble. And I didn't have enough licorice for two! *haaa!*
The paper I used is from an old BasicGrey line. I liked it because it actually has reindeer on it! I must be addicted to crystal-covered snowflakes and buttons this year - I've been using them an awful lot these days. Who cares! I like the way it looks!
What are YOU making for the holidays this year?
