Quilled Peppermint and Gum Drop Treat Box

Hi all! I can post the projects that I had been working on last week now. Here is one of the quilled projects that I made for the Custom Quilling November Newsletter DT. The kit has some wonderful holiday designer papers and a generous pack of red, white, green, gold and silver quilling strips. The red and white strips said "Peppermints" and I quickly made enough to embellish this Sizzix To-Go box. But, it needed something else and gum drops came to mind. The colorful little gum drops were cute as is, but, with a little clear "sugar" glitter they really come to life! The peppermint on the top of the box is wrapped in cellophane for added interest.
The white lacey border around the box was done with a Martha Stewart border punch and the top had two scallop Nestie circles. Tomorrow I will post another of the projects which is "set". Hop on over to Custom Quilling and check out what else the November kit has and click on the November newsletter to see Sue's awesome poinsettia frame!
AND, Tracey from Fred She Said has some great new digi images, and a free download to try! When you purchase her new Poinsettia and Pine Bough digi design, $2.oo will go to Samaritan's Purse. Check out her blog and read more and then see all the cute new Emma designs as well in the store here. While there give her a big congrats on reaching 150,000 visits to her blog and a get well to help her recover from the flu!!!
That's all for now, be back latter!
Comments welcome as always!!!

Really cute! I was wondering how you made the gumdrops look so realistic. All your projects were wonderful this time again, as were Sue's. I love seeing what you girls come up with each month.

I love this box, I've been trying to quill peppermints for a frame and I've used pink and white instead and wasn't sure how much I liked them - I love how you put the cellophane on yours, I may have to borrow that idea. You are so talented, I kept scrolling through your blog and just saying....wow! I see such talented quillers and it gives me such inspiration to step up my quilling game. Thanks. :)
