What’s Your Favorite?

If you have seen the Nutcracker, what is your favorite part?  For the past four years, my girls have been dancing in Dance Prism’s The Nutcracker and I love the battle scene, snow and the Russian Dance.  The girls are part of the touring cast, so we travel to 5 different towns in MA over 4 weekends to perform 11 shows between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  At the end of the run, there is a party and the girls exchange little gifts with the other performers.  I have made something to hold treats every year.  This year, here is one of the treat holders that I am making:


I love how they are turning out!  Each little guy holds 3 Lindt Truffles.  The base is made using the Curvy Keepsake dies.  The Nutcracker is stamped in Black Archival ink and colored with Blendabilities.  Yes, I miss our blendabilities and hope that Stampin’ Up! can find a new supplier to provide us with alcohol markers.   Hope you don’t mind me taking a trip down memory lane and using retired product for this project – but I thought he was too cute not to share!  There are so many great ideas for dressing up the Curvy Keepsake box – that you won’t mind my little foray into past products.

Thanks for stopping by!

    • Yes – this set is from last year’s Holiday catalog. He was in the Clearance Rack for a little while – but looks like they either sold out or removed him during the Year End Clearance sale.
