Night Of Navy Holiday Trio

Just playing around with my Stampin' Up! Sizzix dies trying to figure out which container would be the easiest to make if I needed something in a pinch. The altered Baskets & Blooms was my favorite to make.

Pillow Box die(item # 113466).

Petal Card die for the square box(#113467). Need four petal cards to make a 2-1/2" square gift box.

Baskets & Blooms die (item# 113484) I altered the Baskets & Blooms by using a 9" x 3-1/2" strip of paper. Scored in 3/8" from each side of the 3-1/2". Then along the long 9" side, scored at 3" & 6". Snipped a little triangle at the intersections on both sides. Finished basket is 2-1/2" deep X 4" wide.

Before assembling the boxes/baskets, I stamped with Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder.

ALL STAMPIN' UP! products: Snow Swirled, Winter Post, Lovely As A Tree, Trees Three (retired), Cardstock is Night Of Navy.

The Baskets & Blooms basket would be gorgeous with a handful of fine chocolate wrapped in silver, wouldn't it?! What would you put in the basket??
