Paper Cupcakes - November Artiste Blog Hop

Good Morning!

Today I am in a blog hop where we are featuring projects showcasing our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge, specifically the Noel/Ho Ho Ho key on page 79, E9.  

Here's a picture of page 79 from the booklet:

I also made the little box on page 80 of the Artiste.  Here is a picture of the page from the booklet - page 80, E10 :

I decided to make a Christmas treat box - below are pictures of my project:

Isn't it cute?  This cute little box was cut at 2 1/2" - page 80, E10, 3D Object, < Christms >.  I filled the treat box with Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Cups that I purchased at Costco It holds about 12 of the candiesFor the little "toppers" on the Peanut Butter Cups, I cute the image on page 79, E9, Shift, Accent 4, < HoHoHo > cut at 1.4".  The circle was cut from page 48, B8, Card, < i > at 1".  I edged the circles using Cranberry ink. 

I used Pear and Partridge paper to cover the sides of the box cut at 2 1/4" x 2 1/4".  The sentiment "a holiday treat" came from our October Stamp of the Month - Very Merry Christmas.  It coordinates with the Artiste.  The image can be found on page 79, Shift, Accent 4, < HoHoHo > and was cut at 1 1/4", 1 1/2", 1 3/4", 2".
