Something for Christmas, but Not a Card!

This week's Totally Papercrafts challenge will make you put on your thinking cap! Our challenge is to make something Christmas-y, but not a Christmas card. A-ha! This was good timing for me as I am working on an order of candy boxes for someone at work. Here's my project for this challenge:

Don't you love that patterned paper? I have a weakness for striped paper and I love the scale of this for cards and other small projects. It's not available yet, but it will be on the DigiStamp Boutique site soon!

Here's a better view of this cute new reindeer from this month's November release at DigiStamp Boutique.

If you're a regular on my blog, you've seen these little boxes before. If you're new, you may want to check out this Milk Carton Box tutorial. These are simple to assemble and make a nice little gift filled with candy or other small items.

This week's challenge is sponsored by the wonderful Wild Rose Studios. Head on over to the Totally Papercrafts blog to get some design team inspiration for your non-card project. Wow! The DT ladies have really outdone themselves this week. There are some great projects!  Then be sure to join us for a chance to win two stamps of your choice from Wild Rose Studios!

Lovely creation lisa, looks fab.
You asked what i used to colour my shrink plastic creations wit well i used promarkers, but when you shrink the colour gets more intense but you do not need to do anything else to them also if you are putting a hole in the shrink plastic you have to do it before you shrink it, it is fun to use, x carol
