Candy-Filled Ornament

I want to share this candy-filled ornament with you today!  I'm trying to get into the Christmas spirit and get some holiday crafting done!

I've seen several bloggers make some ornaments with candy or other treats in them, so I wanted to lift the idea for my kids.  I'm doing a little "12 Days of Christmas" with them, and thought I'd have them search the tree for these ornaments.  One made--two more to go!

My papers are from The Paper Studio's "Merry Merry" pad.  I used my "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2" Cricut cartridge to cut the snowflake tag and to cut and score the cone box.  It already had a hole at the top, so I figured it would be perfect for hanging from the tree!  I used my "Smitten Mitten" Peachy Keen Stamps to paper-piece the little snowman tucked into the mitten.

Then I stamped my sentiment on another tag from "Tags, Bags, Boxes & More 2," and I added a snowflake button on some 3 Girl Jam crinkle ribbon.

And do you want to see what's inside?  Maybe you noticed in the first picture.  There are Hot Cocoa Three Musketeers and Hershey Kisses all decorated up with punched stamps from Jaded Blossom!

Aren't those cute!  My kids are gona love them!  After all, who doesn't love Chocolate??!!

I'm entering my ornament in the following challenges:
PKS Challenge #46: 3D: ornament
3 Girl Jam Challenge #8: Christmas Inspiration
Cut It Up Challenge #7: 3 D Holiday Challenge

Thanks for checking in with me!  Now I need to assemble the 42 little treat boxes I cut for my two kids' classmates for Christmas.  Maybe I'll share those soon!
