Bah Humbug

After a trip to an old fashioned sweet shop and my purchase of humbugs I simply couldn't resist another  little project for the challenge over at Country View Crafts which is Bah Humbug, a funny play on words this time.
I have been making these little boxes for ages after finding the tutorial at Splitcoaststampers a long time ago.   They are so versatile and can be for any occasion.

I have used up my Christmas bits and pieces on the front, amazing what you come up with after a rummage in the bit box isn't it.  The only pieces I cut today were the two die cuts with Tim Holtz paper which cover  the top and bottom of the box.  Bah Humbug was printed with a labelling machine. 

Box was created in Kraft colour (to match the humbugs) which used to be sold unwrapped I seem to remember.............perhaps I shouldn't own up to that fact lol........
I stamped snowflakes in white brilliance ink all over the inside lid and around the outside edges added tissue paper and humbugs. 
I will discretely add the box to a table and wait to see the reactions which I think all add to the Christmas fun! 

I will also be joining in at The Artistic Stamper anything goes

Merry Christmas
