A Special Box from Santa's Workshop

So I e-mailed the Elves (yes they are such techies now!) and asked if they could tell me how they made these wonderful treat boxes and they were gracious enough to forward the instructions! (Check yesterday's post if you don't know what the heck I'm talking about here!)


The wonderful box pattern was found on this blog. (Who knew that the Elves surfed the web for ideas just like us!!??!) They added their official Santa's Workshop label to the cover of course and used some lovely Christmas papers to decorate it.


And tucked inside are some wonderful mints topped with the Chief Elf's stamp of approval. Wouldn't you love to find this inside your stocking on Christmas Morning?!?

Tomorrow I'll be posting the elves instructions for the special treasure box I showed a snippet of on yesterday's post so be sure to drop by!

Paper Ocean Tides, Rustic White, clear card stock, DP Rustic Snowflakes - PTI
Ink: Ocean tides, pure poppy, chamomile - PTI
