It's An Outrage.... ANOTHER Christmas Project Before Halloween??? You'll Thank Me!

 Okay you guys!  This is the last Words Of Cheer project for the week.  This one features the dies from the Bundle (CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE) and is CASED directly from the July-December 2021 Mini Catalog page 20:


I just reimagined the card pictured in the catalog as a box... but not just ANY box.....
A CRACKER BARREL PECAN LOG ROLL BOX!!!!


Here is the list of colors/cardstock used (except for the vellum, it is ALL from scraps... YAY):
1 3/4" x 4 5/8" Vellum, Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede and Brushed Metallic Cardstock.  I finished this off with a scrap piece of linen thread even!  THIS is why we keep those scraps!  Honestly... nothing went to waste with this one.  Below is the video on how to make the box.  Normally I wouldn't be posting Christmas projects before Halloween, but COME ON.... this one is SOOOO worth the preview.  Besides, now you can get a head start for Christmas gifting.... PECAN LOG ROLLS FOR EVERYONE!!!
