Perfect Presentation October Release & Candy ~

ETA: Contest now closed.  Thanks for all your fabulous comments!
Hey all!  Perfect Presentation's new release this month is fun!  October brings us a sweet little gift wrapper and a very easy to assemble box both available from The Perfect Presentation shop.
Easy Candy Wrap
Pop'n Top
This is the Pop'n Top.  A great box for soooooo many things!  The template includes a base insert for both a candle and a cupcake.  I chose to try something a little different; last Christmas, Annie, made some bath salts that she put into Christmas ornaments.  What a fabulous, and inexpensive!!, idea! 
The ornaments that I chose are a bit on the large side, so I thought I'd try out this template with the candle insert.  Viola!!
The decorative panels are really easy since they are included with the template.  I chose some different (but similar) Basic Grey papers from the Figgy Pudding line.  I didn't want to add to much to this cute little box, so I chose to use another Perfect Presentation file, Label Frames 1.  I re-sized the label to my liking, sponged the edges and set the snowflake embellishment up on a large glue dot.
Before you all hail me as a creative genius, please check out the true genius, Sherry Cheever, at this link.  It really adds a fun element to this wonderful little box. 
Now I like to make my templates so they can be reused by the recipient, so I didn't add a sentiment or tag on the outside.  I made a tag for the ornaments with new PTI goodies (seriously, I can't leave these things alone once they hit my doorstep!).  The back of the tag is labeled with the type of bath salts, directions and aromatherapy attributes of the essential oil.

K, so that's all I have for you today!  Please check out the rest of the team for some more fabulous inspiration and more chances at CANDY!!
