Stylin' Stampin' Squad Holiday Hop 2012

What an honor it is for me to be a part of the Stylin' Stampin' Squad Holiday Blog Hop! If this is your first time on the hop, or you are new to my blog I am so glad you're here...welcome to my little corner of craftiness! It's possible you hopped on over from Justin's blog. Isn't he a crafting genius?! I just love his little painter's tray creation and the coordinating card using Festival Prints is such a fun design! Make sure to go visit if you haven't yet!

This month's theme was to create something Christmas or Holiday related and I chose to do snowflakes! I know...snowflakes aren't 'technically' Christmas (especially if you live somewhere hot!), but I just can't help but wish for a white Christmas this year! The card is one I created for my Big Shot Club. We had made a different petal cone box, but I wanted to do a makeover and create one that coordinates with the card (I'll show my other sample later).

This petal cone die take out box (check out this great video tutorial by Dawn Olchefske) and coordinating card is the perfect ensemble for a fun holiday gift. Fill it with Hershey's Kisses and you can wish the recipient a Merry KISSmas!

{choose your own Christmas greeting and stamp on the inside}
{a look from above...wrap the ribbon all the way around the box and finish with a bow}
{it can easily slip on and off - no ruining the pretty bow!}
{fill with a fun little treat}
