My good friend Stephannie is having her annual wine and cheese tonight and she has a different theme each year. This year it is "Summer in December" so I wanted to make a small hostess gift that could go along with the theme.
Here is what I came up with:
While at Target I picked up a cute little box in Christmas colors that could be filled with candy. I picked up some yummy Lindt Lindor truffles to go in (dark chocolate and peppermint). I wanted to decorate the box and since her theme was a summer theme I used Paper Doll Dressup to make a Summer Santa, a Palm tree and a cute sun (both Santa and the sun have a cute peachy keen face). I just recently ordered some of the snow writer makers from http://www.markersupply.com/ because I had seen it several blogs (arrived in 2 days)! I used it on Santa's beard and the brim of his hat. I LOVE how it turned out. I also did a little bit of embossing on the sand part of the palm tree to make it look more sandy! Now I just hope I can keep from eating the candy before we get there!
PS: I also plan to give her a snow marker inside of it because she is a crafter like me :)
Thanks for stopping by! Have a crafty day.
