Christmas Kisses

October 27th, 2008

Happy Monday!  After weeks and weeks of being non-stop busy nothing could stop me from a three hour nap yesterday.  It must have been just what I needed since today I’ve been better able to focus and get a bunch of little chores done around the house fairly quickly.  I swear every horizontal surface in our house had something on it and I couldn’t take it anymore.  Does that ever happen to you?  Anyway after doing a quick clean sweep of the kitchen, bathroom, lving room and dining room I decided to take a time out to create a quick little project I had in my head.

I got the JustRite Baking Ensemble recently and the first project that came to mind was one using Hershey Kisses.  When I was at Taylor’s over the weekend I picked up some clear acetate favor boxes.  They are available at TE 10 for $7.50  – click here.  My goodness they are just the cutest things!  I’ve seen Taylor’s Snowman Poop with them in the past and the possibilities are almost endless for party favors, place settings and other little gifts.


I simply wrapped it with some satin edged organdy red ribbon and tied bows on both sides.  I stamped the JustRite elements separately – for the outer ring I inked the image with Versamark and then Classic Real red ink and stamped on Shimmer White cardstock and heat embossed with clear ep.  For the center I inked the image with White Craft ink and and stamped on Real Red cardstock and then heat embossed with some ep I bought several years ago at a local LSS – it’s called Christmas Jewels and it’s a white powder with some silver and gold flecks mixed in – really pretty!  Each element was then cut out with Nestabilities Classic Circles – Large.  The two pieces were glued together and the badge was then adhered to the box with mini glue dots.  Super duper simple.

Two things to be aware of if you do order these boxes – first: there is a protective coating on both sides of the acetate that needs to be peeled off and second: putting the box together does require one small piece of Sticky Strip.  I kept thinking I was doing something wrong when the box wouldn’t stay together without any adhesive.  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by.  I need to get back to my endless to-do list!
