Day 9 - The Twelve Days of Christmas with My Creative Time

Welcome to Day 9 of The Twelve Days of Christmas with My Creative Time.  You should have arrived here from Cassandra's Blog.  If not you can start from the beginning here!
Today I made some gift packaging that can be used for candy or small gifts.  I used Miss Emma's All Around Christmas Stamp Set along with her Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies.

  
I used the Life's A Party Cricut Cartridge for to box cut at 8".  I usually hide the score line marks on the image but there are a lot of them on this box.  I left them in this time because it was too confusing to score without them.  The Velcro dots are attached with hot glue so they stay on securely.
Other Supplies I Used:
Scallop and Stitched Circle Dies  -  My Creative Time
Sugar Plums Paper Pad  -  Recollections
Festive Berries and Evergreen Bough Distress Inks
Marachino and Peapod Twine  -  The Twinery
Velcro Circles
Stickles and Copic Markers

Fabulous gift bags. I have that cartridge but haven't cut one out yet so it's very nice to see it put together and to have you say you left the score lines in. I often get rid of them too, but now I'll leave them in with your advice. Love the addition of the scalloped circles to finish them off.
