Hershey's Kisses Window Box


This is my first design team post for The Cutting Cafe.  It's a "anything goes" week as we could choose any of the files from the store for our project.  After spending an hour looking at all the wonderful designs, I picked a darling little window box and these fun circle bottoms to put on Hershey's kisses.  I printed out the Hersheys kiss sayings, then punched them out with a circle punch.  Then I cut out the window box with my Silhouette Cameo.  Added lace, acetate to window opening, ribbon and a few roses to finish off the gift box.
Here's a list of the supplies I used to create my treat box: 

The Cutting Cafe:
Bazzill Basics Crisscross Cardstock
Acetate for window
3/4" circle punch
Treasures by Shabby Chic Paper Roses
Lace, ribbon, double stick tape and glue dots

Valentine's Day Card

We collect teddy bears so I made this Valentine's Day card for my husband.  This sweet little bear is a digi from Sassy Cheryls.  I colored him with Copic markers, then cut out the image and background layer with Nestabilities dies.  Scalloped border was cut with a scallop blade on my Carl cutter. Designer paper is a older mat pack called Cosmopolitan from Making Memories.

Warm Winter Wishes

I think this little guy is too cute!  I got the digi from Bugaboo a while ago but haven't used until now.  I also used Nestabilities dies to cut out image and scalloped background.  Colored penguin with Copics then added glitter glue to snow line and a cotton pom pom. 
Embellishments: A tag, ribbon, crochet thread, snowflake button and pom pom.
