Christmas Treats

I wanted to do something special for the members of the 2 stamping groups I belong to so I made 50 mini pillow boxes! Sadly, the die I used is retired but Spellbinders has a similar one called Contour Pillow Box Steel Rule die that is similar.

The steel rule die requires a die cut machine like the Platinum or Platinum 6 that can cut a steel rule die.

Here's my 50 die cut boxes. I used a LOT of old print card stocks and am happy to cut my stash down a bit.

I have the tabs glued after folding. The steel rule die will require 2 die cuts to make 1 box but you can cut up to 6 layers of card stock with it. I almost ran out of my Journey Glue getting these done!

They're all filled with Hershey Nuggets or some similar candy that  fit inside.

I used my Scan N Cut to make my labels then stamped them using Spellbinders Holiday Sentiment Stacks clear stamp set. I'm glad I had my MISTI as each tag was stamped 3 times! I used some twine from my stash to wrap around each pillow box and tie on the tags.

If I have any left over I'll take them to my bank as the gals that work there are wonderful.
