Step Up with Magnetic Boxes

During the month of October, if you were a hostess in 2008, you are entitled to the Monthly Hostess Special. This month is the Magnetic Boxes. They come two to a package and are flat in the package. There is really nothing to assemble other than to push up the sides and fold a flap! I like how they fasten using a magnetic strip which is hid in the flap. I also love how pretty and elegant the boxes look!

While I had the boxes for a while, I hadn't had a chance to decorate them. Since my group at the Friday night Rub-On Class is so good, they really have little use for me, so they let me stamp (they really are too good to me). For this first box, I created a belly band using Old Olive cardstock and wheeled the Soft Holly wheel for the top edge. I then wrapped the Dotted Red Ribbon (another favorite of mine) around the belly band and tied it in a knot. The tag was created using the Delightful Decorations stamp set, then punched out with the Ornament Punch! Of course, I attached the tag with dimensionals!

For this box, I wanted to try to stamp a design on the box. I knew that since the surface of the box was slick and a little shiny, that the only work that may work is Stazon (and I love using Stazon). I stamped the image onto the box and waited for it to dry before touching it. Since the images remained shiny, I wasn't sure they dried, but they did and rather quickly!! Oh gosh, they are too cute!!! I tied the ribbon around the top of the box and attached the word image using dimensionals. Wouldn't this be cute with some holiday treats??

As a prior hostess, you still have an opportunity to take advantage of this wonderful offer. All you have to do is place an order of $50 or more and you get a package of the boxes FREE!! Don't worry if you place your order on line, I'll make sure you get a pack!

Hope you enjoy your Sunday afternoon!!
