Candy Box Challenge

Hey Patchers!  We have another fun challenge/contest going on at the Patch.  You will love this one too.  We are challenging everyone to create a cute little candy box and share it with us over at the Facebook Group site to enter.  There is a fantastic prize being given away to a randomly drawn winner.  These are SOOOO cute.  Take a peek at these ones that Anne created:

You can fill them full of treats and share them with your neighbors, friends, co-workers or even put them on your Christmas Trees!
Anne created a video tutorial if you would like to see how she constructed the candy box:

Here is the template that is used.  You can save this image to your pc and then size it to what ever size works for you:
There is also an svg file available.  If you would like that, you can pop on over to the group site and we can hook you up.  The tutorial above goes over how to create this "old school".  It's fun stuff.  We hope you will give it a try!
