Holiday Hugs

I'm loving all the different makes for Power Poppy's 12 Days of Christmas and am trying to do a few at least. I've had a few gift boxes pinned for a while but just not made any yet, so this was the perfect excuse.  I always like to have a little something to hand for Christmas in case of unexpected visits.  
I have used part of the image 'Poinsettia and Pomegranates' to decorate the front panel. The box felt a little plain even after adding the twine and charm, so I used the leftover doily from making my gift card holders to decorate the top of the handle each side. 

Products used:

  • Kraft card
  • Doily
  • Twine
  • Candy Cane charm
  • ProMarkers - Holly, Lush Green, Bright Green, Leaf Green, Shale, Burgundy, Cardinal & Ruby

I am entering my treat box into the following challenges:
  1. Power Poppy - Twelve Days of Christmas
  2. Cupcake Inspirations - #435 Holiday
  3. The Corrosive Challenge - #12 December Anything Goes
  4. Simon Says Monday - Christmas/Winter Holidays
  5. Passion For ProMarkers - WK424 Mega Christmas Challenge
  6. Double D Challenges - It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas
