Treat Box

I made this treat box as a gift to hold a gift card and some candy. I used Snowy Hug from Magnolia Stamps. I created the box in purple then added white cardstock, embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots) and back it in light purple. I added a white heart paper doily backed in purple. I typed the sentiment on my computer. "May this Christmas be as special as you are". I punched the sentiment out using a 1 3/8" circle punch and backed it in light purple and white and added crystal stickles to the white. Then I punched a 2" scalloped circle out of purple and backed it in light purple and added crystal stickles to the light purple. I added the sentiment to the scalloped circle and then added it to the heart. I added a bow out of purple plaid ribbon and added it to the top of the sentiment. Then I added crystal stickles to the edges of the bow. I punched three snowflakes out of purple cardstock and one snowflake out of light purple cardstock. To each purple snowflake I added a smaller snowflake punched out of light purple and to the light purple snowflake I added a small purple snowflake. I added a purple gemstone to the center of each snowflake. I added one purple snowflake to the top right back corner and one to each side of the box. I added the light purple snowflake to the top left corner of the bottom of the box. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils, cut out around the image and added purple gemstones for the buttons. I added crystal stickles to the snow on the image and white flocking to the hats and jacket on the image.
