I created this little treat box using my Cricut and the cartridge called, Tags, Bags, Boxes, and More! This is the pie box and it was cut at 5". I trimmed the top of the box with vintage lace and gave the top a generous coating of glossy accents and course clear glitter. I cut the tree from the Winter Frolic cartridge at 3.5". I inked the edges of the tree, added glossy accents, and also added glitter to it. The sentiment was stamped using Papertrey's Raspberry Fizz ink and cut out using a Spellbinder's die from the Happy Everything tag set. I inked the edges and attached it to my tree. I added a small piece of doily, a rhinestone, and some twine. I wrapped the whole box with some seam binding, and added painted and glittered chipboard swirl to tuck behind the tree.

For my sentiment, I stamped it in black. The rope and anchor were colored with Copic markers. I cut the sentiment out using two Spellbinder's circle dies. The top layer was hand cut and placed on dimensional foam squares to add depth. I added crackle accents to the anchor to give it a distressed aged look.
I hung the anchor from a bit of Papertrey Twine, tied a bow, and placed a gold pearl in the center. I added tiny gold pearls to the flag as well.

The holly berries were actually white pearls that I colored red with my Copic markers! Such a cool way to change the colors to your liking!
Busy week this week! Trying to wrap up last minute clerical items at school, packing up my room for the summer, and Kyle's graduation this Thursday. I can't believe my baby is graduating 8th grade. I will be sure to pack plenty of Kleenex Thursday night.........
