scraptastic mondays blog hop

happy friday! hope youre ready for some fun!  are cindys digis the cutest ever! im so looking forward to more of her designs. and the DT have just created the best stuff!  be sure to join us every monday at scraptastic mondays. we'll be starting our new challenges this monday november 7th. as you can see we have an awesome design team! i promise youre gonna love this :)
so were starting things off with a fun little hop. be sure to check out everyones projects and check out cindys digi shop.   youre going to want to purchase them all. 
you should have arrived here from our sweet and very talented  stars place if ya got a bit lost just head on back  to the SM blog theres a full list for ya there :) 
i made 2 cute  little projects
the first one is a hershey kiss holder. its super quick and easy to make. 

on this i used the digi snowman with wreath. isnt he just adorable peeking  through :)  i colored him in with markers adding stickles on his nose and the wreath.  added a little tag and cut out snowflakes from the patterned paper i touched them up with stickles and added a rhinestone to the centers. 

cute eh :) what you do is take a piece of cardstock that is 5X51/2. i used patterned cardstock but if youre gonna use plain and want to stamp on it do that. score at 1~1/2, 2~1/2 and 4 inches. then fold  up tent style. secure with strong adhesive tape. add your hershey kisses . i used a glue dot on the bottoms of the two end kisses so they dont fall out :)  

next  i made a bonbon box this is for my daughter so i put her favorite peanut butter cups ( fit 8 mini ones) instead of  bonbons .
i just love cindys sweet gingerbread tags and sweet they are!   wouldnt this box be awesome with gingersnaps cookies tucked inside :) yum :) or a gingerbread brownie:) bigger yum!:)

on these i used colorbox fluid chalk, white signo gel pen  ( the best pen out there!) a marker ( mistletoe leaves)and viva decor pearl pen ( berries and buttons)
                                                        cute cute cute!

sorry i dont have a link to the box but if ya just google it youll find plenty of tutorials. this one is not a mini box. those only hold one.

Love both of these little treat boxes Shelly! That kiss-holder is just perfect for putting into stockings :) I have one question... what is a gingerbread brownie? Whatever it is, I want one! I love gingerbread in all shapes and sizes :) Thanks for sharing these cute projects.
