Bunco Prize boxes

                                                       Valentine prize Boxes

I am the hostess for our Bunco group in February.  I felt pretty lucky to draw that month since it is before Valentine's Day which gave me a great theme to follow.  Plus.... and this is huge.... it's dark when they get here at 6:00 so I don't have to wash my windows!!! Woohoo. Told ya it was huge.  These little prizes were so easy to create and I think they're pretty cute. 

 I used the Tag a Bag gift boxes and decorated the acetate sleeve that goes around them.  Filled with a little bottle of shower splash, some See's candy hearts and we're good to go. Our group gives money for prizes but most hostesses give the money out in a little container of some sort.  Thanks to Stampin' Up! this was super easy and fun to do. The teeny boxes are for the non-winners and contain a couple of candies but no moolah - only six win money!  I'll have more on how to make the little boxes in my next post.

I put a strip of designer paper down the front of the acetate sleeve and began decorating from there.  I layered my label from the chalk talk dies, Label Love stamp set and Artisan Label punch, a Round Array  stamp set which was punched out with the 7/8 scallop round punch, and the sparkly heart.  All topped off with a bow from the bow die which was in the Holiday mini. I am almost certain it will be offered again in June when the new annual catalog comes out.  If not, keep checking the clearance rack - new things pop up there frequently.  I think it was wildly popular so I hope it is offered again.
