Giving Tonic treat boxes that Christmas feeling by Leanne McAlpine

Hello everyone, Leanne here … thank you for stopping by to read my first blog post as a Hochanda Blog Ambassador … it’s all a bit exciting!
For my first post, I thought I’d share with you some of my recent makes using the Tonic verso treat/cupcake box dies that I bought a while ago during a One Day Special.

As Hochanda are currently celebrating Christmas in July, this inspired me to have that Christmas feeling … it’s never too early after all. I have to confess I could make Christmas projects all year round.

These boxes are really easy to put together. The dies cut beautifully, helped of course by my Gemini – if you haven’t got one yet, you don’t know what you’re missing!




The papers I used were from my stash. I have a terrible habit of buying papers and not using them because they are too nice … I’m sure I’m not the only one!


I used various embellishments from my stash to decorate which I attached with hot glue.
I also used some Crafter’s Companion dies to die cut holly leaves, snowflakes and baubles.




I’m really pleased with the results and I think these would be ideal for table gifts. I’d love to know what you think.

Thanks for stopping by, please join me next time for some crafty inspiration.


Leanne x
