Hi and welcome to another posting, I hope you like this as much as I do. This gift carton is handy for those little stocking fillers to give away to the kiddies (young and old). I used some d/load paper which did come with a card kit freebie from Cardmaking Downloads website. It's gorgeously festive and if I go wrong I can print another, so I'm so glad I have my trusted printer. Used my lovely grunge sentiments from the wonderful LOTV...I was one of the blog hop winners recently and I've been sent a massive set of stamps, so I'll be going through them all and I'd like to say a big 'THANKYOU' to them! The image on the large tag is part of my win from HM challenge blog so many thanks for this too! Called 'candy gram' it was a delight to colour with Promarkers and distressed with walnut stain ink.


I've a few birthdays near christmas time so I may use it as an extra gift. Challenges are mainly christmas themed...HM 'anything christmas', Joanna Sheen 'sparkle'..snowflake, Crafty Little Fairies 'candy stripes', CCC 'sweet treats', Craft my life 'no card', Crafts and me inspiration 'anything' as are MIM, Challenges 4 everybody, Cupcake Inspirations, Inkspirational, Sweet Stampin 'ribbons', Crafty Ribbons 'spots/stripes..bakers twine', Ribbon Girls 2nd, PapertakeDream Valley 2nd, I Love Promarkers 2nd, Crafty Hazelnuts 'someone special' and their Extra #, Paper Shelter , are having their 3rd birthday and is 'special birthday' so I'll be on the hop after this. Have a great Monday!

Hi Ruby,
I love your project! The candy canes are all fabulous. I've seen the candy holder like you've made, but never one in person. I think I might try one since yours is so darn pretty! The paper is lovely and the sentiment from LOTV is perfect. What a wonderful idea! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Shelter challenge and hope to see you at the next challenge, too! Hugs, Gail
