First Treat box using Tags, Bags Boxes and More And Trip Around the World!

If you are looking for the Snowy Blog hop click here!

So I have had the Gypsy since October... and have only used it maybe twice! I thought I would use it all the time but I haven't even loaded my cartridges on yet! It is a goal to get them all loaded!

I wanted to use Tags, bags boxes and more but it is hard to figure out what they will look like without a book!

So I randomly picked one and I think it turned out super cute!

I could not figure out how to cut the strap or if that was even an option so I just used my paper trimmer.
The box it self stands about 4 1/4" I plan on filling it with candies and putting it on my desk at work.

Ornament is from Simply Charmed
Paper from Tis the Season
Stickles on the Swiss Dots embossing

Trip Around the World with Momo:

Here is a picture from my upstairs balcony taken today... 72 degrees in Sunny Arizona!


  1. Ohhh this is cuteness at it's best form, Carri! Fabulous lil container and love the ornament!

  2. Great lil box carrie.. I'm sure your work peers will love it even more filled with candy.. lol. I am sitting here and I think it's probably 39 degrees out and u got yourself some 70's...nice :) I use my Gypsy all the time and I'm practically in the car loading my carts on it..I can hardly wait!! Did you do the free d/l's from provocraft I hope!

  3. Carrie,

    Where in Arizona are you?! I'm in Scottsdale and it's nice to finally have some warm weather (considering we had the coldest Thanksgiving since 1933-lol!)!

    I love your gift box!!! :) It came out super cute! And you're brave-it is hard to know what you're making without the book (I wonder if Tammy or anybody has something we could print up-not that I'm lucky enough to have my Gypsy yet & I'll probably miss out on all those cool downloads).

    Thank you so much for sharing,

  5. Great box! I just love that is an oldie but goodie!! Paper is great and the ornament is really cute. Great work as always! :)

  6. I love that box!!! Treat bag! IT's fabulous! And the picture of Arizona. I would love to be there right now! IT's FREEZING over here! It's 0 degrees right now. YUK!
