Color Throwdown 116 Favor Box

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

I seem to be on a favor box kick lately.  I always seem to want to make favor boxes around the holidays to give away.  I must be channeling my inner Santa!  I had seen this cute matchbox a while back and knew I wanted to case it.  Then the Color Throwdown challenge this week was to use Riding Hood Red, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla and I figured the two went together. 

I changed the box from the matchbox to the Sizzix Box #2 and I went to the vault and used the Wintergreen designer paper (always one of my all-time favorite christmas papers). 

Here's a funny bit about this box:  I attached the holly leaves with dimensionals, but I got a little carried away.  The green belly band is designed to slide off of the box so that you can open it.  But I put so many dimensionals on the holly that I attached them to the red box, making it impossible to remove the belly band!  Oops!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

What a beautiful little box - love the papers and the holly and button finish it perfectly! If your box contains chocolate, it's important not to make it too easy for the recipient to get hold of it!
