Today, 9 December 2011 at Simply Create Too begins "Challenge #2 - Embossing" and ends at midnight [CST] 22 December 2011.

All of us on the Design Team of Simply Create Too are anxious to see the 300+ entries in our "Challenge #2 - Embossing" [You decide what kind of embossing]. Here goes my inspiration project for you to enjoy:

This little embossed candy holder is a perfect size to either hang on your Christmas tree or give to your guests as a small "Thank You" after their holiday visit to your home. You can fill it with homemade cookies or candy. Yum!

This started out as a Jello box. I covered it with Georgia Pacific light green cardstock that I ran through my Big Shot using a Sizzix embossing folder. I used red Offray ribbon to made the handle and bow on the side; then I wrapped a 1/2" piece of GP coordinating patterned paper around my box, added a punched spring of greenery with a red gem as my only embellishment. Almost forgot: I then filled my Christmas box with some of my favorite candy [no, not homemade--I'm taking the easy way this Christmas].

Christmas Blessings to each of you!
