I can't believe that Christmas is one week from today!  I think I am almost done shopping... well maybe... This year I am giving a few gift cards, and I wanted to make them a little more personal so I made some chocolate truffles and packaged them up with cute gift card tags using the Gingerbread Kisses collection.  Take a peek...

I started with the box cut file I found in the Silhouette Store that was designed to be cut from acetate, it is a "no-glue" box.  I cut it from the Sugar Sprinkles Heavy Acetate. The little boxes were the perfect size to hold 2 truffles, and I just love the colorful dots on the acetate!

To dress the boxes up a little I made a belly band and cut a bow using another cut file. 

Next I created the gift card "tags" that I tied to the bows on the box with some Doodle Twine.  I started with a couple of tags from the Bits & Pieces pack.  I embellished them with some Odds & Ends, chit chat pieces and some sprinkles.  I glued them to a small envelope sized just right to hold a gift card.

I love how it all turned out!  These would also make fun teacher or neighbor gifts.  The hardest part of this whole project was to not eat the truffles!  That's it for me today, I will be back in the new year with some more Doodlebug Fun!  I wish all of our Doodlebug Friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
