ANYTHING BUT A CARD AT BUGABOO STAMPS

On Mondays, at Bugaboo Stamps' Catch the Bug blog, we get to show you that Bugaboo images are wonderful to use on ALL papercraft projects, not just for cards .... and today I have an ABaC project to show you:

and what is this? you may ask .... 

It's a simple box I made that contains a slab of chocolate, just perfect to have in your emergency gift stash.

I obtained the template from my awesomely talented friend, Sharon, who owns and runs The Hobby Hut.  (Do you like what I made, Sharon?)

The box is made of sturdy gold and cream DP, which has lovely heat embossed, gold  glittered Christmas trees on it.  I added some silver stars just to add some bling.  As an embellishment, there are two gorgeous Bugaboo Christmas images,Ginger Boy - Candy - 4, and Ginger Boy - Candy - 1. 

I added some crystal Stickles to the sugar frosting on the gingerbread men and a shiny satin ribbon to tie up the box.

I would like to add this Christmas project to the following challenges:
