Crafty Christmas Club – April 2020


Welcome…I’m so glad you’re here!  Today I’m sharing a super simple project using my all time favorite holiday packaging…the Candy Box…which is also affectionately known by many as a Christmas cracker.



And good news…the Candy Box is now available in my Krafted Simply store…in two sizes and in three colors!  I’ve used the small version here…and I’ve used the Perfect Polka Dot Background stamp from The Stamp Market and the Tall Type Tagalong Dies from Concord & 9th to embellish this sweet little box.


These little boxes are fabulous for so many gifting ideas!  My favorite is to roll up a few dollar bills to place inside…but the Candy Box is also perfect for:

  • Barettes
  • Stretchy headbands
  • Candy (of course!)
  • Socks
  • Coffee or any drink tube
  • Jewelry
  • Seeds (vegetable or flower seeds are my favorite
  • Lottery tickets
  • Or just a sweet note!

I’m sure there are many more…and when you think of something please let me know!



And before I go…I just have to say that the Candy Box is the perfect way to add a gift (or treat) to any holiday table setting!



Thank you so much for hopping with us! Now…head over to see what Marcia has for you. It’s sure to be fabulous!
