And now for something completely different!

I apologize upfront for my bad photos - I DID try but it just didn't work out for me this time. :(
I love  Wintery Letter Seals from Whimsy Stamps - so versatile. This time I've decided to use them as a main focus of my little project:

These little pyramid boxes open from the back. You could stuff them with chocolates and use on Christmas tree or as an advent calendar. I decided to hang them on wine bottles and fill with packets of mulled wine spices - it makes a lovely Christmas gift, don't you think?!

The big snowflakes underneath the seals are actually cheap plastic tree decorations but they work brilliantly here and add just enough oomph.

It's a perfect little project to do with your kids - my 4-year old helped me with pleating the paper for rosettes and punching out the circles and snowflakes. And glittering. Sigh.

If you want to try yourself you can find the template and tutorial for the project HERE.

Challenges:
No Time To Stamp - ornaments / home decor
Raise The Bar - tree as the focal point 
 Creative Card Crew (2 weeks) - treat boxes or goodie bags

Thanks gor looking and happy crafting!
Hugs

Great projects, Annika. Your house will look brilliant with your decorations up, especially meaningful if your little one has helped. You obviously shop like I do...everything is a potential something else! LOL.

They are absolutely amazing. I love them, and love the rosettes you have created. What a brilliant idea of filling them with packets of mulled wine spices. I've had my first taste of mulled wine this year and can't get enough of it. By the time the festive season is over I'll end up with a drink problem lol.
