365 Projects in 365 Days

My previous New Year's resolution was to be creative everyday with my Cricut, but since I've started my blog 2 years ago I have come across so many new exciting things like stamps, digi stamps, non-Cricut projects using chipboard, stickers, etc. and now my addition is the Silhouette Cameo. I will be posting many pictures and tutorials of all my projects. I will be making scrapbook layouts, cards, tags, embellishments and altered items. My goal is to create 365 projects in 365 days.

#202 Stocking Stuffer Blog Hop Candy Box

***Please scroll down to next to post if you are looking for the Jolly Holly Hop***


Hello everyone and welcome to our first ever Paper Playtime Stocking Stuffer Blog Hop! If you are here from Alex's  blog then you are in the right spot. If not please start at the beginning at the Paper Playtime Blog. We are all so excited to share with you all of our stocking stuffer gift ideas. On our hop you may see a few of us make non-stocking stuffer gift too, well unless you know someone who has a big Santa sized stocking LOL! Please make sure you leave comments on all of the blogs to have a chance at 7 grand prizes!!! Woo-hoo! Yep 7!!

For my project I made a candy box, now I have had this idea for several months and I finally made my ideas into a project! The candy box is from Joann's bead section (you can also find at Michael's) and it was 50% off so it cost me $1. The candy cost me about $1.50, so my project was about $2.50! I cut the reindeer from Christmas Cheer and I used up some of my sticker stash and used 2 sentiment stickers one that say Merry Christmas that I put over the tinsel like fibers, and the other sentiment sticker that I put next to the deer says "It's a Holly Jolly christmas". I put googly eyes on him and used my i-rock from the red bling. I also put gold stickles on the collar. To adhere all of the paper with my ATG gun I just measured it out and cut it out with my paper trimmer, and went back with my craft knife to trim excess pieces. It was so perfect because I only had to use on sheet of 12x12 paper from the DCVW Christmas stack from Michael's.
A close up of the cute little deer and sentiment sticker!


Look here! This is snowflake RIBBON wrapped around the entire box!

Mmmmmm chocolate! I am a chocoholic!

Here is my box that I used to create my project. You can buy at Michael's/Joann's
Here is my blog candy!To win these Fiskars Stamps all you have to do is leave me a comment and tell me what is your favorite treat to eat at Christmas Time!!

I love this idea! The first thing that came to my mind was a person could re-use it (after all the candy was gone) to store small Christmas ornaments! Oh and my favourite treats are peanut butter balls! I even tried freezing them in the past to keep us out of them but soon discovered even frozen they are wonderful lol!
Happy Holidays!
