Happy Birthday PTI

Hi there,

PaperTrey Inc are just starting their fourth birthday celebrations, see Nichole Heady's post here, and they have a fabulous crafty hugemongeous prize for Day 1, all you need to do is repost your favourite PTI post of the last year. I had a quick browse this morning and decided to go with these little cuties I made last December. I was really delighted when these were selected as one of Passion for PaperTrey top three picks for their Christmas challenge :). So please read on about the little treat boxes for the kids. Here's the end result. First a close up of the girls boxes.
And a close up of the boys boxes

The boxes are fusion of SU! and PTI. To start with I used the Favor it 2 box die to cut the boxes out (you need two per box) Baja Breeze for the boys and Real Red for the girls. (I decided to use some retired SU! DSP Ski Slope to decorate the boxes hence the colour scheme.) I labelled the boxes using first a Mat Stack 1 die cut (stamped with the matching Mat Stack stamp from Tiny Treats: Christmas) then different Limitless Layers 1 3/4" circles for the girls and boys. Lastly I added a stamped and coloured image from Tiny Treat: Christmas - Santa for the girls and seriously the cutest reindeer ever for the boys. I coloured the Santa and reindeer in using SU! markers. The last touch was just a few rhinestones to bling them up a bit - a very important detail according to my Miss 5 (she made sure the girls got three rhinestones on theirs!) I used a cello bag filled it with a few home made Christmas biscuits we'd made Saturday afternoon and some little chocolate Santa's. Then tied it closed with some dotty Real Red ribbon.

It was a labor of love - but fun I have got to say :) and the kids loved them which definitely makes it worth while!!
