SUO Challenge #29 Leaves

I have just finished making all the little treat boxes for Thanksgiving Dinner at my Sister-In-Law's place on monday and thought you would all love to see them. I used the Sizzix take out box die and pressed out and adorned 7 little take out boxes. Inside I placed some yummy, special treats for everyone! Most of the boxes are an pressed from an Early Espresso textured paper but not all as I didn't have enough!  The ribbon around the boxes is Su Grosgrain Ribbon Striped 1 1/4 inches in Early Espresso!On most of the boxes, I used Crumb Cake to stamp out the leaf from the SU "Day of Gratitude" stamp set and Basic Black to stamp out the sentiment from the same set. It is simple but nice and I think will make a great treat and a beautiful part of the table setting! Since the leaf was from the "Day of Gratitude" set I decided to enter it as a 3-D item in the SUO #29 Challenge Leaves! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving! ~Happy Stamping!~

World Card Making Day: October 1, 2011

Hi Ladies,

I have been making birthday plans and surprises for my hubby's birthday on Sunday Oct.2, and part of the fun was making these adorable little treat boxes! The first picture is a little blurry, but the second pic is of the finished treat boxes and it is much clearer! I am planning on filling them with either fine chocolate from Charlie's Chocolate Factory or with little cheesecakes....

In the first pic, the treat boxes are not fully embellished. I used SU (Stampin Up) cardstock and DSP (Designer Series Paper) with my Sizzix pie box die. The sentiment "Friend" is from the SU "You're a Gem" set and the "Happy Birthday" was from the SU Pretty Postage set. The postage stamp shape was cut out from my postage stamp SU punch. The ribbon is also from SU...their scallop ribbon...hard to see in the pics becasue it is on the side of the box! The second pic is of the finished treat boxes! Can't wait for the party tomorrow! Glad that I am all ready for my hubby's special day!  What are you up to on World Card Making Day? Leave a comment and let me know! ~Happy Stampin'~
