Hi! I hope you're all having a great weekend. It is BLAZING hot here, so I decided to take that opportunity to finish my project for the Christmas in July challenge at Papertrey Playhouse. If you've got a few moments to spare, head over and check out the details; we'd love to have you play along with us.
My sweet little La Princessa will start kindergarten in just a couple of weeks, so I thought I would get started on the treat boxes for her class Christmas party (if they still have those). I don't know yet how many children will be in her class, but I thought I could at least get started, and make a few here and there, so that I won't be so stressed out as the holidays get closer.
I kept my design relatively simple; you and know the little kiddos don't care so much about the boxes as they do about the treats that are inside.
I've got to tell you though, these ended up taking A LOT longer to put together than I planned, because when I stamped the adorable little images for my background(s); I couldn't help it, I just HAD to color them. So the background you see on the fronts of the boxes are also repeated on the back.
On to the treat boxes (still empty for now, of course):
So there's what I've completed so far; I hope you like them, and don't forget the Papertrey Playhouse challenge.
