Make It & Bake It

Today I'm up with a handmade gift idea that will showcase your awesome crafty, 
as well as yummy baking skills.  I recently ran across a similar idea in a magazine and 
thought it would be the perfect project to make with the new "Wishes" Collection by

This unique cookie, treat box uses just one 12X12 sheet of paper and a section of acetate
 overlay. (I had a few of these in my stash that had printing on one end...
I just trimmed the printed end off and used the clear portion for the top).

To make the box:
1. Score "Merriment" 12X12 paper at 1.5", 3" 4.5", 7.5", 9" and 10.5" marks;
 turn paper horizontally
2. Score paper at 1.5" and 10.5"
3. Fold the 3" and 9" score marks in towards the center of the paper
 4. Fold the 4.5" and 7.5" score marks up to form the 'sides' of the box
5.  Turn the paper; fold in at the 1.5" and 10.5" score marks. 
6. Where the horizontal and vertical score marks intersect, cut a slit into the paper
 just up to where the marks meet; glue edges together to form box shape
7.Cut a piece of acetate to measure 5.5" X 9"; score (lengthwise) 1.5" from each edge and crease the acetate.  Apply high-tac adhesive to ONE of the sides and adhere to the inside of the box. 
8.       Embellish the top of the box with ribbon, doilies and pieces from the 
"Wish" Enhancement and Details sheets.
 You may wish to line your box with wax paper or tissue before filling with goodies.
Now, who wouldn't want to receive such a sweet treat!?!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
