I made this box for christmas. I am going to be putting in little candies in them. I think I might make mints this year and make these boxes to put them in. I cant tell you how easy this box was to fold up and create in a matter of mintues. This is the best cartridge to have I think.

Box is on page 37 and is cut to fit the page which is about 4 1/2 inches. I used the white dasiy card stock from CTMH.
The tag is also from the Artiste cart and is on page 35 and is cut at 3 inches. Than stamped with the Very Merry Christmas stamp set in Topiary ink color.
The rosette can be found on page 77 and I cut it at 1 inch.
the pattern paper is from DCWV christmas stack.
