Love what you did with this die. What a great idea even for 'displaying' a great birthday gift... Thanks for sharing. Once again. I just love your creativity


These are beautiful! My first thought was to do something w/ reproductions of old family pictures! Esp if I could find some Christmas ones. Another was to make a different box for each month, and have it on a free-standing ornament hanger.

Lisa Moody

This is probably finished, but I loved all the ideas of others as well as yourself. I would make these for the kids and put their favorite candies in them. I have almost two dozen nieces and nephews so this would be a great thing for them.

Rosa M Vasquez

I would add little photos (maybe wallet size) of the family and give them as gifts.


Great ideas! Love your candy box! Probably fit cookies too.


Your shadow boxes are just adorable. I love the vintage feel that you've given to them, and how you 've shown us two very different ways of using the same die! I"d probably case your ideas, because I like them so much! I have a little pack of the trees so I'd be good to go.


Absolutely loving!
I would like to fill with 4 tea lights for my friends!

Elva Loredo

Love love love this idea! You're so creative... I'm hosting Christmas Eve this year at my house and I absolutely love this idea to use as Xmas party favors for my guest. I would definately use my authentique paper and fill the shadow box with cinnamon sugar pecans.

Elin Larsson

Soo cute projects! My idea is to make an TV out of the box!

Jennifer Davis

I would love to make some of the vintage shadow boxes!


I think it would make great shaker box scenes.


Left some love on the SSS blog for today's post. I love your card!

Jennifer Harvey

I love this die and the projects you have created. I have a family member getting married in July. His bride to be has asked me to help her learn to make cards. Our first project was Christmas cards. She would like to make a lot of her wedding decor and has asked for my help. I would use this die to create wedding favors--filling them with a special homemade treat!

JoAnne M

These are so CUTE! So many ideas running through my mind. I think I would make the treat boxes and fill with homemade vanilla cinnamon almonds! They would be so fun to decorate.

Helen Gullett

LOVE those ornaments! I would love to make ornamenets, treat boxes and beach keep sake display for their seasheels from Southeast Asia last summer for my daugthers.

Paulette S.

Aren't they wonderful! Will they hold a business card? I used to design and print business cards for people from my Hallmark or greeting card making programs like Print Master, like my hair dresser, just for fun. And sometimes I like to gift coupons that I make up myself like, Date Night, Free Movie, Free Hugs, etc. A knitted dish rag would probably fit in there too! Thanks, Wanda! I love your creativity!

Teresa Doyle

I DO love Vintage Christmas and these are amazing. Besides the obvious (gift boxes, which are beautiful!) I would also use them in more practical ways. I don't know what the box dimensions are but if it was high enough, I would make dividers and store my finger daubers in them for easier access so not to have them rolling around in a plastic container. You could also make a few to organize ribbons/twines for each colour family. A clear plastic top, label the end and stack. Presto! Organized!I can think of more...LOL
BTW, who won the mini correspondence die set? I never heard. Thanks for the chance to win.

Sabrina Radican

Oh how adorable!!! I would make a bunch of Advent Calendars for my 8 grandchildren!!

Janice Rosenthal Rock

. .. sooo cute! . . .I'd make 12 of them, decorated for the 12 days of Xmas (or filled with a different treat eachday) . . .then "package" them up in a stack, and the recipient would pull one off the stack each day . . . (if they're not tooooo big!!) Shadow box ornaments is a GREAT idea! Like for baby's first Xmas, first Xmas together, etc. . ahhhh . . . so many projects, so little time!! :)

Tricia Barber

You could use these for any holiday. They would be great to put cookies in for a cookie exchange.


Love the shadow box idea. I'd like to create mini memories of my daughter's wedding that was just in November at a resort in Mexico.

Laraine R

These are just gorgeous! These would make great homemade treat boxes for the neighbors, mail lady, paperboy & people at work! Great for small gifts abd gift cards also.


Hope your knee is better. Our only Black Fri outing is to Chico Scrapbooks. Like to support our local store.

Linda Grady

What a creative, fun die. I would make some room boxes to go along with my dollhouse miniatures putting miniature furniture in them. Love the idea of the treat box!!

Jean Bullock

What a cool die! I would make a shadow box that can "grow." I would make panels of 8 boxes and personalize them for each member of my daughter's family. I would use velcro to stick them on, so my daughter could order them how she wants. Every year, another panel of 8 boxes could be added to the original with hooks and eyes. I would include the year with each panel.


Love what you did with this! Thanks for the chance to win.


These are adorable. I would love to win, and help my daughter make gift boxes for all the people in her work unit! Lovely project Wanda.

Deb L

These are beautiful Wanda! This die is exactly what I've been looking for. My first project would be a shadow box and then who knows!

Denise Bryant

These are fabulous! Love the papers and embellishments you used!
I love the ornament idea! Very fun project! I'd make a set to use as special gifts!

Amy Hurley Purdie

It would be so awesome to use this die to create all the many boxes I need to organize my scrapbooking supplies!

Jami S.

Your projects are gorgeous! You know I love vintage Christmas too! That die set is great! Might be fun to create scenes for different seasons using stamps and dies. :)

Fonda Jo

Very clever and cute!

Erica Johnson

This is so cute! I would use the die to make treat boxes for my mini holiday sugar cookies!


Those are cool.....


So many ideas running through my head. I would take this in to the classroom and let students make their own ornaments as gifts for parents. I bet they would have very creative ideas.

Lydine Arriola

Oh my goodness! This is absolutely fabulous! Love what you created! So many ideas to do! I'd definitely make ornaments using my kids pics, some great boxes for my son's classmates, the possibilities are endless!

Holly Saveur

Well love what you did....so would like copy those ideas!!
Super Gorgeous!!
