WMS Dec Release Blog Waltz! - Ornate Treats

The Day has finally arrived -  all of the December Release Waltzingmouse Stamps are now available for purchase!   and the Design Team is having the traditional Blog Waltz to celebrate!  You could win a stamp set of your choice - just by leaving a comment at each of our blogs.  One lucky winner will be chosen randomly from one of our blogs.  See all details at the end of my post.

You should start the Waltz at Claire's Blog - she also has a list with links to all participants if you lose your way.  If you came from Sandie's blog - you are in the right place.

Today I have 3 projects to share with you - all of them using the beautiful Ornate Ornaments set.  I had SO many ideas for all of the sets -  I just didn't have enough time to make everything I wanted to!  I know you want to be quick on your waltz today - I have a lot of pics - but I'll keep the writing down to a minimum -  if you have any questions please e-mail me!

First I have a treat bag and tag to show you:  I made the tag using another of the beautiful ornaments in this set.
The white cone organza bag is from Pouch Mart.  This ornament fits the Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments 2012 dies.  I tied it onto the bag with Glitter Eyelash yarn by Martha Stewart.
Here's what I stamped on the back of the tag.
Next I made a snowflake card using the same Ranger Distress Evergreen Bough Ink that I used on the tag above.
 

 See the single stamping above?  That is the stamp that I used to make the wonderful snowflake on the card.  I marked the center of my card stock square with a dot - then stamped the snowflake branch with the dot lined up on my marked dot -  I stamped it 6 more times around - each time lining up the center dot.  Isn't it beautiful?!
And here is what I stamped on the inside of my card.

My final project is a treat box - the template for this was designed by our very own Sarah Martina Parker and you'll find it here. (I made a box for tea using this template last year - you can see that here.)  Isn't this sentiment a riot?!!
I stamped and die cut an ornament for each side of the box.  This ornament fits the Spellbinders 2011 Heirloom Ornaments

 I did the handle on my box differently then the template -  I punched 2 slots in the cover and ran my ribbon through them - with the ends attached to the inside of the box - so the cover slides up the ribbon.  I punched circles to cover the ends of the ribbon just to make it look nicer!
 I just love this little box!
I used the colors from the CR4FN68 challenge on my box -  Burgundy, Gray, Cream.

So that's it from me today!  Sorry to keep you so long -  Next in the Waltz line is Laurie Schmidlin 
let's see what lovely creations she has to inspire us!  And don't forget to shop!

 You have until 12/4 at 6:59 am EST to leave comments as you waltz along.  The winner will be posted on Claire's blog on 12/5.

Lovely treat bag and box. I think your idea to run the ribbon through the top of the box is just brilliant, it would work beautifully for my children who have a habit of leaving the box lids to get crushed underfoot!
