Here we are. Week 12 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas Series. When I started this series I thought it was so far off to the end. It has come around so quickly. I hope you have enjoyed the projects I have shared over the last 12 weeks. Today is a fun Christmas treat box.
It’s a Christmas crate. Fill it with treats to give as a gift but wouldn’t it look great as a place marker on a table for Christmas.
The So Santa set works so well for our hot summer Christmas events. No snow here in Australia. Sun, sand and seashells right? 🙂
To make the crate I used the Wood Crate Framelits. Simply cut 2 from Real Red cardstock and assemble as normal. Before I assembled the box I stamped over it with the Holly Strand in several places.
I measured the width of the crate to know what size width for the red cardstock. Look what else I have used?? The Rectangle Stitched Framelits. Brand new coming in the Occasions Catalogue on January 3rd. I am so excited for these.
The So Santa image was stamped on Thick Whisper White and coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. And look also, a new Stampin’ Blends colour – Balmy Blue. I like to outline the images when I colour them in light Smoky Slate blend. It helps to add depth to your images and make them POP!
I added a little dazzle with Silver Glimmer Paper punched with the Duet Banner Punch. I cut the banner in half and adhered it under the sentiment to extend the length. The sentiment was cut with one of the smaller Rectangle Stitched Framelits.
I hope you have enjoyed this series. It’s been fun. If you missed some of the projects over the last few months then click on the tag for 12 Weeks of Christmas and it will show you all of them. It might be a bit late for this Christmas but you could file it away (or PIN them) for later.
Thanks for following me along,
