Christmas Bunco Treats 2012

Yummy Treats

Are you getting excited for the holidays?  I know I am and making cute little projects is one of the main reasons.  I had so much fun making these little matchboxes and, of course, sampling some of the candies.  I'm sure this is not a new idea to many of you - in fact I had quite an exhaustive search looking for this Stampin' Up matchbox die since it is retired.  Always a day late and a dollar short, right?  Oh well, I finally found one and had a blast making these.  

I used cherry cobbler and old olive for the boxes and a retired designer series paper (dashing) for the bands and candies. The candies are little Hershey nuggets, yum.  The adorable sentiment is from Bells and Boughs... I love it... and it was punched out using SU's extra large oval punch, which I layered onto the designer label punch.  Can you tell I am obsessed with punches?  The ribbons are all cherry cobbler seam binding which is so silky and easy to tie.  I intend to get more colors since it is "mail friendly" too... it's not bulky at all.  Yay!  

Do you love the little mittens?  I used the mitten punch from the Holiday mini which is current until Jan 2.  This punch will become one of my all time favorites (I have that feeling) since you can just grab a few scraps and punch out the cutest little mittens.

Well, that's about it for today.  Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy whatever holiday prep you are doing!!!

Big Hugs,
