SSNOTIME165***NO GREEN***NO RED***



Sharon does this every year, but it's a personal favorite of hers! And mine too!! Let's make Christmas cards or projects today in NON-traditional Christmas colors. So that means NO typical red and green. Some non-traditional colors areBashful Blue, Amethyst, Celery, Pink or Rose. Can't WAIT to see YOUR favorites!!!

One of my favorite colors combos is black and white or black and kraft/ivory so that is what I went with. I am having two friends for dinner this weekend, my house is semi decorated for Christmas so I decided to make these little treats boxes for them.



The paper is from K & Company and I used the favor box die from PTI..
The paper is two sided so the inside of the box looks just as nice as the outside.

It is super simple to throw together. I used my Sizzix snowflake dies and cut two snowflakes, covered them in Coarse glitter from Martha Stewart, added some black twine and a brown button. Before that I used some Antique linen distress ink on them.



Fill them with chocolates and there you have it!!


Check out Sharon's site HERE and show us all your fabulous creations in your favorite color combos.
