Resist the Temptation

My niece posted on Facebook last Sunday that it is just three months until Christmas. It is going to fly by, just like this month did! But I'm ahead of the game this year because of the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long challenges.  I have so many cards/3-D items in my stash that weren't there this time last year!  Yeah me!

This week we are sponsored once again by Perfect Presentation.  The challenge is called "Resist the Temptation"....no stamping!  With all the embellishments and beautiful papers out there, this was an easy one.

The template I chose to use is called Perfect Parcel.  This is the cutest little template!  I thought it was going to be bigger, but it's the perfect size for some candies inside.  I recently saw these candy corn candies in a caramel apple flavor and bought them because I thought I could use them for one of my Christmas projects.  This little template was the perfect one for it.  You can fit a nice bag of these in the box.  The colors inspired me to use this retired dp from SU called Holiday Treasures.  I can't get enough of this paper...LOVE it!  All I did was cut the template on my Circut with the red cardstock and the panels from the dp.  I then tied it up with this beautiful chocolate satin ribbon (also SU, retired I think).  I was going to put the poinsettia flower on the front of the box, but it didn't look right.  So I added it on top covering the knot.  The front then looked so plain, so I added crystals to the chocolate designs on the dp.  That's it!  Sooo simple and stunning!
If you want to see more inspiration from the CSAYL girls, stop by the CSAYL blog.  They never disappoint!  And if you play along with us, you will have a chance to win a template of your choice from Perfect Presentation!  Thanks for stopping by and I love your comments!  Have a great Friday!
