Anyone for Anya - Anything But A Card


I've been meaning to try making some little treat boxes for a while now as I've been thinking about homemade goodies for Christmas pressies and also because we're having a major fundraising drive at church for some renovations we need to make. This week's challenge at Anyone for Anya provided the perfect opportunity. The Top Heavy Pillow Box cut file that I used was purchased from The Digichick and cut on the Cricut. I've also used Sweet Shoppe papers and Wild Sprout Charlotte. All very easy to do. And what did I put in my treat box? Some scrummy yummy homemade cherry and ginger fudge. You can find the recipe on the Carnation website. They even have a very useful fudge making video. 
ETA I'm entering this to the Stamptacular Sunday No Cards Allowed Challenge.
A close up of the tag. Charlotte is coloured with a mix of Copics and pencil. The sentiment is by Waltzing Mouse.
I hope you will join us in this week's challenge. We are sponsored by Whiff of Joy and you can win a very cute stamp.
