Taylored Expression October Release Spotlight Day

All of the new Taylored Expressions products are now available in the Fresh Out of the Oven Department.
Be sure to check the TE Current Specials page!  As a special offer for World Cardmaking Day, all Card Kits and Project Pantry kits will be 15% off through Saturday.

My project today uses  a new house in Doug Applegates' Adorable Abodes Series, Peppermint Place. Definitely one of my favorites. At the holidays I like to some treat holders ready to go when I need them. The little wood box is from Michaels and I added a coat of ivory paint.

I covered the box with paper from My Mind's Eye All is Bright and sponged Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen around the edges. The image is colored with Copics and I added glitter to the rooftop. The sentiment is from the set.

At the top I tied on ribbon and added to holly leaves cut with one on the dies in the Very Merry Outline Die Set from Taylored Felt in Grass Green. I glued on buttons, lightly coated them with Crystal Effect and sprinkled on glitter.

 Thanks for stopping by. For more inspiration stop by each of the Design Team's Blogs today!
