My Time Made Easy Release Day: A Box Just isn't a Box

Today is December 1st already!  Where has the time gone?  Today is also release day at My Time Made Easy.  The design team is all using the new template A Box is a Box.  This is a HUGE box and has two design options.  I'm using the petal top option here.  I wanted an elegant-looking box, so I went in search of some ribbon.  I found this ribbon I got at JoAnn's long ago and always loved it.  So I decided to make the box out of brushed silver cardstock from SU to match the silver in the ribbon.
This box also comes with different cut-out options.  There's a flower, a leaf, a tree, and a snowflake, which I chose to use here on the front (and back) of the box to match the snowflakes on the ribbon.  I cut a piece of white cardstock the size of the side of the box and adhered it to the inside so that the contents (Hershey Kisses) wouldn't fall out and so that the snowflake cut-out showed up more.
I added ribbon around the box and tied a big double bow on top.  Then I added some jingle bells and attached them with some silver and white string.  I couldn't discard the snowflake cut-outs, so I strung one from the string and attached it to the ribbon.  It can be used decoratively or as a tag.  Mine is just decorative for the moment.  By the way, only one bag of Kisses is not enough to fit into this box!  To open the box, just take off the bow and the box opens.  I forgot to take a picture of the box open.
You can see and purchase all the new products today on the My Time Made Easy store.  We have two new templates, several new cut files and digital stamp sets, and some gorgeous digital paper being released.  The design team has more inspiration to share with you. Stop by their blogs to see for yourself!  Thanks for stopping in today.   I'll be back tomorrow with another MTME post!
