A box to house your goodies!

Hello! How are you today?! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday! : ) I wanted to share this adorable house box with you! You can find the pattern here. It is from Score-Pals new ezine! I had so much fun making this cute little house gift! It is a slender box perfect to hold candy bars or hot chocolate packets or tea! I am toying with the idea of making homemade chocolate dipped pretzel rods and think this would be the perfect gift box for them!! What do you think?!

This little box went together in no time! I used the SU! hostess level 3 set Window Dressing. The cute little snowmen were the perfect addition to the snow-y scene outside the window! I stamped snowflakes on the outside and added a Stickles glitter center to each one! The snow is chunky glitter from Martha Stewart. I was super excited when I spied this in the store, but was a little disappointed with it once I used it. It was not quite as chunky as I hoped it would be, but is still pretty! : )

Think I will play around with this template and see what kind of fun changes I can make! I think a pink house would be cute!

I spent quite a while playing with my blog colors and style the other night. I settled on this all green for the holidays, but think I want to make some bigger changes in the future. What do you think of the all green background?!

I have a bazillion things to do today, but wanted to stop by and say hello! I will be back soon!:)

Have a wonderful day!

This is adorable! I think it would be perfect for holding some chocolate dipped pretzels.

It's totally darling! I love it when an image comes together with a presentation that just seems to "fit perfectly", like this does!
