Santa's List Candy! -- Guest Designing for Frosted Designs!! :)

Hi everyone!

 I am so honored to be Guest Designing for Frosted Designs this month -- and I wanted to share the post I am sharing on their blog today!!  :)

****And at the end of this post ... there is a GIVEAWAY involved****

I absolutely LOVE the December kit Frosted Designs has put together!! Yesterday and today, I will be sharing what I made with this kit! And you are not gonna believe what I made -- FOUR layouts, ONE altered project, FOUR pillow boxes and EIGHTEEN gift tags for Christmas, and I STILL have enough paper left over to make some cards!!!! :)  Amazing, right????? Seriously this kit is AWESOME!!! :)

Today I am sharing the ONE altered project, FOUR pillow boxes and EIGHTEEN gift tags for Christmas! :)

I am starting today with my altered project --  I work for a huge corporation, and about once a month they reserve a conference room and fill it with treats for the employees to come and enjoy -- this last month,  one of the treats they offered was this HUGE bucket full of Sour Punch Twists :)  And once the container was empty, I asked the coordinator of the event to save the container for me, because I knew I could alter it! LOL! :) 

Here is the container I started with :) 

And here is what I turned it into! 


And here are the other sides!

I will be filling this up with candy for people that come over to our house over the Holidays! :) 

And here are the FOUR pillow boxes I created :) 

And here are the EIGHTEEN gift tags I created for Christmas!! 

I made this one using the packaging that came with the Bo Bunny jewels that comes with the December kit!!
