A Perfect Presentation Christmas

Are you ready for Christmas?  Now that Thanksgiving is over I am officially on Christmas mode, which means gifts!  Today the Perfect Presentation design team is ready to help you out with gift ideas.  Today may not be an official new release day but there are quite a few new cut files (including tags) and templates (there is a sleigh) in the store.  Have you checked out the new Perfect Presentation store?!!!  

I am sharing an idea for one of the new templates, "Favor Box II".  This template has such a fun closure and it is roomy too.

The PP is an iPaper from Amber Ink.  If you missed my post from last week, iPaper is the way to go because you can print the pattern paper on heavy card stock and then cut your template from it.  For this one, I printed on kraft paper which tones down the red iPaper and gives more of a rustic feel (love it).  The image is also from Amber Ink.

My box is filled with bite size Lindt Fioretto and I was able to fit in the entire 4 oz bag with plenty of room to spare - hmphhh, that means no extras for me to eat and it also means that this box is BIG enough to hold almost 8 oz, so I need to go buy more.

Be sure to visit the rest of the design team for more gifty ideas: Kerri Michaud, Terri Moore, Alyssa Scritchfield, Chris Olsen, Beth Johnson and Leigh Ann Baird. Plus, we have a new member on the team, Susan Wesley, so be sure to stop by and say "hi"!
