Christmas In July Day 2 Treats and Favors

HI everyone today is Day 2 of our Celebration Of Christmas.  If you just happened to come across my post that is great. After you finish here you will want to go to Giselle's Blog for a chance at winning today's special treat ssponsored by My Pink Stamper!
The theme for today's project is Treats and Favors and here is what I made:

This is my treat box filled with Peppermint Soft Mint candy,
The box is Recollections card stock cut from the "Cricut Everyday" cartridge with the tabs cut off.
The ornament square is from a 12x12 scrapbook page titled "Christmas Balls" by Paper Adventure.
I cut a 3 inch wide strip of white card stock Embossed it with the Cuttlebug "Holly Ribbons Folder" used Anna Griffin Holly edge punch along both edges.
Scored it lightly to go around the corners of the box.
The Ribbon was from some I had in my stash.
I'm not a big "Bling" person but I added a few pearls in the corners of the Ornament cut out.
Fairly simple project.
Hope you like it.
" I will be giving away a PC " Your Story to one lucky winner. I am participating in 5 of the 7 days of celebration and will pick a winner from those who comment on my posts "HERE" on my blog for those five events ( 5 chances to win) I'd love for you to follow me but it isn't mandatory to win. Thanks again!
Big Blog Hugs,  Janet
