The project I'm sharing today was one of my entries for Papertrey's October Guest Star Stamper contest. There were soooo many beautiful creations entered, and mine did not win, but I love how it turned out anyway! I used one of the clear card boxes sold by PTI as my treat holder. I then put bands of Bashful Blue cardstock, punched with SU's scallop punch on one side of each band, around the entire box. A strip of Certainly Celery was stamped with PTI's Polka Dot Basics in white craft ink and then wrapped around the box as well. I built three different snowmen using PTI's Made of Snow stamp set, cut those out, and adhered them to the box using dimensionals to make them pop up a little. The sentiment is also from Made of Snow, and the ribbon is Spring Moss dotted satin ribbon from PTI. I finished it off by stamping a snowflake from PTI's Holiday Treats set and making that into a little medallion with a gemstone in the center. The Hershey's Nuggets are wrapped with address labels that I stamped with one of the label images from Holiday Treats. This makes for a pretty cute gift, if I do say so myself! Perfect for a hostess or teacher gift this holiday season.

PTI Guest Star Stamper Entry
Has it really been two weeks since I last posted?? I just don't know where the month of October has gone! I have actually been stamping A LOT over the past two weeks, as I was working to get cards made for all the October and November birthdays in my life, and was trying to get most of my Christmas cards made. I am not EVER this early with Christmas cards, but as moving day (God willing) is now less than 2 weeks away, I had to pack up my stamping stuff this weekend and in boxes it will likely stay for most of November. I will have my very own stamping room in the new place, but at the moment don't have any tables or desks or any kind of workspace for it. So, until I figure that out, I don't really want to unpack anything. I'm about 80% done with my Christmas cards though, so that is a great feeling!
