Artiste Blog Hop

Thank you so much for joining us today for the CTMH Artiste Blog Hop! There are only 7 of us in this hop, so I hope you'll be able to stop at all our blogs to see the projects we've made to inspire you!!  

You should have arrived here from Shawnee @ Blessed On The Bright Side.
If you just happened to stumble upon the hop today on my blog, you should hop on over and see Amanda @ Crafts By Amanda to start at the beginning.

For my project, I wanted to show you this super cute little gift set that I made for a Christmas gift:

First up is the box:

I cut my box out of Artiste. It is the 3D object on page 39 in the handbook.
I cut it out at 2.5"
It was so super simple to assemble. 
Once assembled, I simply cut a piece of acetate and adhered it inside the lid so the candies would not fall out. I attached a poinsetta flower sticker from Jolee's Boutique to the lid top. Then I just simply wrapped some gold ribbon and tied a bow to the lid. 

Up next is the gift card holder:

You can find this gift card holder on page 59 in the handbook. 
I cut it out at 5". 
The tag on the front is also from the Artiste cartridge. 
It is on page 35 of the handbook.
I used the stamp of the month from CTMH for October called Very Merry Christmas to stamp my sentiment on the tag. 
I added some little holly stickers from the same Jolee's Boutique sticker sheet to embellish the front.

Here is a picture of the gift card opened:

I added a sentiment to the inside. The sentiment is also from the October Stamp of the Month set. 
It says, "Wishing you a season filled with sweetness" 
There is a Starbucks gift card in there. :) 
I love Starbucks! lol!

Here is a picture of the entire set with the lid of the box open to see the candy inside:

I was able to fit 6 Lindor Truffles comfortably inside the box. 

Speaking of candy, I have something sweet for one lucky follower.
