Christmas "Extras"

Hello! It's time for another awesome Bee Crafty challenge! For the next two weeks, our theme is "CHRISTMAS EXTRAS". Basically, the challenge is to make anything but a card. It's a perfect challenge for everyone to make those last minute gifts!

When I go to shows, I hardly try those make and takes. I usually just watch how people do it and then move on to look for something new. Well, the last time I went to the stamp show, I spent some time at Irina's make and take table. I didn't make anything but I did watch her make one of these treat boxes. I thought it was cool so I got a few of the boxes. This is super simple and such a great gift idea for a friend or co-worker.

Basically, I glued a piece of patterned paper to the box, added my image, filled with M&Ms and tied with a bow. Super super easy to make!

Well, I got to put some packages together to send off. Oh, before I run off, I got a questions for everyone. :) How many Christmas cards have you made so far? I made 35 so far! Not too bad! hehe

I shall check in with everyone soon! Hope everyone likes my project and enjoy your day!

Ha ha - how many christmas cards.....well, I never send any!!! Its just so funny! I have now accepted that even if I make or buy them, write them, stick stamps on them .... I will NEVER deliver them! So now everyone knows that thye wont get one from me! Its so strange but no one seems to mind! It does take the stress out of the whole thing though!
