Snowman Soup & Treat boxes!

Friday, 18 December 2009
See, I told you I'd be back! It was great walking in the snow this morning, so fresh & crisp under foot! It's when it starts to melt and freeze again that I don't like it so much.

It's certainly helped me feel Christmassy and I'm now sat here watching Love Actually. Such a great film!
Anyway, I said I would show you some photos of the snowman soup and little treat boxes that I've been making to sell at work.
I used one of the fabulous Lauren Meader Timeless Templates called It's on the House. You can get these fantastic templates from Papertry Ink for just $5. Lauren is so amazing that she's now branching out on her own. If you haven't already done so, you must pay her blog a visit.

I made 10 of these to sell and have sold 6 so far! Whilst I love them they took quite a while to cut out and assemble. Each box contains:

  • 1 sachet of hot chocolate
  • 1 bag of mini marshmallows
  • 1 peppermint candy cane
  • 2 little Dairy Milk chocolates

I wanted to do something similar for some of my friends at work but instead of cutting out more boxes, I opted for some mugs which were wrapped in acetate! However I'm afraid I didn't have a chance to take any photos of these so I apologies.

Anyway, lastly are some treat boxes that I made to sell as well. I was inspired by the wonderful Steph for these. I already knew I was going to use the Bigz Shaker Box die but wasn't quite sure how to decorate them and then I saw Steph's post with the boxes she made for her children's friends. Thanks Steph!

I made 20 of these to sell and only have 6 left! They were filled with little chocs including the Cadbury's chocolate elves!

Sorry for the long post! Must go and put my dinner on. Thank you for stopping by and any comments you may leave as they are greatly appreciated.

    Loving all these ideas. Nice to see how others use the Sizzix XL Dies. Did you use acetate in the shaker boxes? That's the only bit that is fiddly with these and the bit I hate doing. Just wondering if it's needed?

  1. Hi sweetie,
    I LOVE these boxes - they're fantastic. I'll have to check out Lauren's Templates - thanks for the link :o)
