My own personal sweat shop

Okay, the peppermint patty baskets are finished! Here's a picture of all seventy of them together. I did 30 with Dashing designer paper, and 40 with Wintergreen. The sentiment that you can see on the top mint is from Verve Visual's Seasonal Circles set. The other two mints (not pictured) feature two different snowflakes from Verve Visual's Winter Wonder set.

I don't really mind making a bunch of something fun like these baskets. It's really just a matter of setting up a little assembly line. The only thing that I'm tired of right now is the smell of peppermint patties! This took a little over five bags full. So here we are with a way to use five bucks worth of paper and other supplies to deliver twenty five dollars worth of candy!


Details:

Paper: For the 30 red/green boxes - Very Vanilla, Dashing, Old Olive, Real Red, River Rock (all Stampin' Up!). For the 40 blue/green boxes - White, Wintergreen, Sage Shadow, Soft Sky, Almost Artichoke (all Stampin' Up!)
Stamps: Seasonal Circles, Winter Wonder (all Verve Visual)
Accessories: scallop circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, 1/16" circle punch, silver brads, mini glue dots (all Stampin' Up!)

OMG these are fantastic. What patience you must have - I get fed up making more than one card for a swap! They are worth the effort though - really lovely. Lol xx
