I love this box!

This was one of the projects from the Sweet Treats stamp camp on Saturday. It is called a criss-cross box. I found the template on Nichole Heady's blog (PaperTrey Ink) some time ago and just now decided to put it into action. After I printed out the template I looked at it like it was a foreign object as it looked more difficult that I had thought. Well...it isn't! Because I'm not very good with projecting how something will look after it is done (think furniture in an empty room...can't do that) I went ahead and scored and cut my box out first then I went back and stamped at the edges of the two flaps and the front flat section. I used the XOXO stamp from the SU! set Sealed With A Kiss. Then for the front I used one of the sentiments from the brand new SU! Level 1 hostess set called For A Friend. Like on Nichole's box I used the SU! Tab Punch for a way to easily pull the candy out of the box. VERY FUN! The picture doesn't show the detail very well but I hope you like it anyway!

Well, I have decided on a winner for the renaming of my blog candy. Ready?

Your card is lovely, but I am so saddened for that family. How about some Glory from Lorie. You can put something in from of it like heavenly glory from Lorie, glittery glory from Lorie, etc.

I love the Glory from Lorie. Doesn't it feel like that when you get "candy" in the mail? Glorious? So, Linda...I hope you will see this and e-mail me your address so I can get you some Glory from Lorie out to you! :o)

Have a great Monday everyone!
