Treat holders

This month's theme for Verve Stamps' winter release project parade is "Triple Play"; create a trio of projects. There are such a wide variety of tutorials available online and I got a chance to use 3 of them to make these treat holders. Christmas is fast approaching and I thought these would be great to fill with something sweet.

Up first is the box in a bag.  There is a tutorial here.  I used Die Cuts with a View card stock from the Christmas Stack.  I used a Cuttlebug die to make the "present" tag.  The sentiment is an image from Papertrey Ink's mixed messages stamp set.




Next is the window treat box.  I used the video found here.  I used more card stock from the DCWV Christmas stack and this sheet has bits of silver glitter.  For the window, I used Spellbinders' Nestabilities labels 8 die and backed the opening with a piece of transparency.  The poinsettia is from GKD's AYear of Flowers stamp set.  I stamped and heat embossed it with silver embossing powder, sponged some color on it with Versamagic pixie dust ink and added rhinestones for the center.  I finished the box with silver metallic ribbon, curling the ends to resemble curling ribbon.




This last holder is a gable box.  I used the tutorial found here.  I used another piece of DCWV card stock that also has some bits of silver glitter.  I used a Cuttlebug die for the tiny tag and I adhered a piece of silver metallic ribbon behind it.  I also added a glittered brad I had in my stash.  The sentiment is a Dawn Bibby outline sticker.  For the closure, I punched two holes in the handles and tied with ribbon.  I added a Basic Grey button threaded with DMC floss to finish the look.
