Today I rediscovered my Buttermilk Carton die. It's too large to store with the rest of my dies, so I had it tucked away, and, as they say, out of sight is out of mind... and I totally forgot I owned it!
So I decided I wanted to work on a simple treat box I could use for our Christmas dinner table - something that could act as one of those... whatayacallits? ... that thing with your name on it that sits at your plate and tells you where you're supposed to sit.
I swear I haven't had a single sip of a cocktail! I'm just having an airhead moment. (Please, if you know the name of these things, write it down in the comments because this is driving me nuts!)
Aaaanyway, the name would go on a strip of card beneath the ornament. And, while I'm thinking about it, those are not giant doves - they are perfectly porportioned. It's the trees that are small; they are dwarf varieties of pine and spruce trees. I also apologize for the somewhat washed out photo - the picture doesn't do the tree dies' embossing justice.
