Cuttlebug Challenge - Gifts from the Kitchen with Core'dinations


The Cuttlebug Challenge blog and Core'dinations have teamed up to bring you some goodness. The theme is Gifts From the Kitchen. PS. there are prizes too at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog so you do need to visit there besides taking peeks at the other goodies.

I had cut this adorable box shape at a craft store from a piece from The Chocolate Box collection. That made it ready to emboss with a Cuttlebug embossing plate. You can see all of the CORE goodness showing through!? I thought this would be the cutest way to quickly tuck in some cookies or candies for a gift-giving idea.
The butterflies are also die cuts and what can make them better then some embossing?! The colors you see are both sides of this piece from The Chocolate Box collection.

Here is a real good close-up of the embossed design and that great blue core showing through plus this box has this cute tucked tag to close it.


Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

What a wonderful way to share homemade kitchen goodies with the neighbors. Let them know you are thinking of them without breaking the bank!
Thanks for the wonderful inspiration.
