Merry Christmas Pillow Boxes.....{TKJ #151}

Good Morning and Happy Monday Everyone!
It is time for a new challenge over at
 The Kraft Journal!
This week the challenge is:
Something New

This is what I came up with.... Hope you like it!
I started out my project with the plain Small Kraft Pillow Boxes, and decorated them with snowflakes from PKS using white ink. That was my "something new"~ adding stamping to my otherwise plain box. You can really dress up these packages to fit any holiday or theme, with the possibilities unless! You could also emboss these boxes which would give them another totally different look. I will save that idea for another time :)
Once my boxes were dry, I filled them with some chocolate (these are gifts for my boys bus driver's) and went about with my embellishments.
Using some White Twill Tape, I wrapped them around the boxes and tied them in a bow. Before I did that though, I made the tags that are attached to each of the packages. I started out with the White X~Small Tags and stamped my sentiment from MCT~ Tiny Tag Holidays stamp set. I also added a die cut Christmas Tree, also from MCT but the All Around Holidays Stamp set. Since these would be handled by my kiddo's, I added an eyelet on each of the tags, just for some extra strength.

So there you have it....
my inspiration for this week's challenge.
I hope you have enjoyed my card and will play along with us!
