Christmas Favor Boxes Featuring Magnolia Doohickeys

Hello crafty friends! It's no secret that I am addicted to Pinterest. Well, I think a lot of us are, right? I never fail to find inspiration for my projects and today's project is no exception. I was looking for a cute way to gift some holiday goodies to my daughter's teachers. Sure enough , I found the cutest little box idea. It wasn't Christmas themed, but with the right papers and embellishments I knew I could make it perfect for the holidays.

Christmas Favor Boxes

Ta-da! How cute are these? And I finally got to play with my new Doohickey Dies.

This one is my favorite! I'm just so in love with the cute Santa die. I wanted the die cuts to take center stage so you can see I kept it light on additional embellishments. A few strategically place rhinestones and lots of Snow-Tex is all it took to give these a wintery look.

Here's a side view of the cute rocking horse too! So adorable!

Here's that Santa again!  I made the mini tags out of cardstock scraps and added a jingle bell tied with some bakers twine.

Take a look at the little trees. I added a few red rhinestones and dabbed them with Snow-Tex.

The stocking die is adorable too! Such cute little details on the die cut pieces.

I die cut 2 of the larger poinsettia pieces to give my flowers more dimension and then, of course, dabbed them with more Snow-Tex! 

I think they turned out adorable! All I have to do now is add some crinkled tissue inside and add my goodies. I hope Kaylah's teachers' love them.

  1. Oh boy did these turn out cute! Fantastic die cuts and the added frostiness from the Snow-tex is fun. I'm sure the teachers will go crazy over these. So glad the tutorial was a help. :-)
