Silver Snowflakes!

Hi there! How is your weekend?! Mine has been very nice so far! We started our day with an early morning soccer game and my kiddo scored the last goal of the game and of the season!! You talk about a proud mom! He was awesome! Go Daniel! :) Then we spent the evening visiting with some of hubby's relatives! They are my absolute favorites!! They dropped by and gave my kids quilts that they made for them! They are my kid's surrogate grandparents and we are really lucky to have them! They said "These are not occasion gifts, they are just I love you gifts!" Awwwwwwww!! Makes me all misty eyed! :)

I have a simple project to share with you tonight! I have been trying to wrap my brain around the fact that Christmas is just a mere 4.5 weeks away! YIKES!!! I need to get some gifts made and stock piled away! It is tough to think about Christmas tough when it is warm enough outside for sort sleeves! LOL

I threw this little guy together in about 20 minutes! It only took that long because I heat embossed silver snowflakes on it! It is a simple 2-4-6-8 box with a few minor changes! I scored my 8.5 x 11 paper at 2.5", 5", 7.5", and 10" and then turned it and scored the 11" side at 2.5". I added the snowflakes and then folded it all up adhering it with sticky strip. I love the way the silver looks against the baby blue card stock! I added a bow and a cute snowman tag and viola'! This will hold a bag of chocolate nicely! :) Here is my little box:

Hope you like it! :) Have a wonderful night! I will be back soonest! :)
