Candy Wrapper Treat Boxes, Part II!

I had so much fun making the first three Candy Wrapper treat boxes that I couldn't wait to make more!  I had an idea for a different way to use them and had to try it out!
Yes, as ornaments!  How cute will that be to hang these on a tree or perhaps even a garland?!  I think I"m going to hang these plus the previous three (here) on my "pot rack" over the kitchen island with some greenery!  Can't wait to see how that looks, but I do have to wait until after Thanksgiving to redecorate, lol!
All these candy wrapper boxes use Champagne Glimmer Paper, Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo, Early Espresso, Lucky Limeade and Very Vanilla colors of cardstock, ribbon, ink and trims plus Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine for the hanger loops.   The gingerbread man from the Got Treats? set just fit perfectly on the background punched with the Scallop Oval Punch.  Other punches used were the Large Oval, Wide Oval and BoHo Blossoms Punch.
The two candy wrapper treat boxes above use the Festival of Prints Designer Paper Pack, which makes it easy to coordinate all the colors!

The last box has a wrap of Candlelight Christmas Designer Paper; it has the very same colors in it so it combined perfectly with the Festival of Prints papers used on the first five boxes.  The Champagne Glimmer Paper, Clear and Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details accent both the Christmas tree here, the nose and antlers of the reindeer and the buttons on the gingerbread man!

I hope you have enjoyed these and perhaps have gotten some inspiration to use your Candy Wrapper Bigz L Die.  It is SOOO easy as it does all the work!  It both cuts and scores your cardstock, so there is no guesswork in where to fold this... it's all laid out for you.  You just get to have all the fun decorating them!

P.S.  Besides holding candy, small trinkets or folded money, these boxes could also hold very special jewelry gifts such as diamond earrings or a precious stone drop.. okay, I'm dreaming now, lol!
