The Paper Crafts treat box challenge, take 2 ~

*It just wouldn't be Christmas without fudge*









I saved these coffee containers last year. They've been sitting in my scrap room all this time and now I know why. What a challenge to alter this little tin box. LOL! I do really like the way it turned out and it will be perfect for fudge, but I'll tell ya....the person who gets this for Christmas, I must really, really love. :)

I used kraft cs as the base and stitched on some MM pp, after making the border w/a Martha Stewart border punch. I heat embossed the thickers letters. The tag stamp is by Stampin' Up!, rub on words & heart are SR, buttons from my stash.

Thanks for lookin' and woo hoo, it's Friday!
