Snack Size Candy Boxes and Holiday Home Decor

I am so enjoying the pattern paper pack by Honey Bee Stamps called Holiday Cheer.  I love the colors so much I've used it on almost all my projects this season.
I've made some little treat boxes and added lots of Honey Bee product to them, so let me show you.

I've made these little boxes for years.  They hold snack size candy bars.  I have some with Hershey Chocolate bars in them and some with Kit Kat bars.

The measurements for the box are:
Cardstock 4" x 4-3/4".  
Score the 4" side at 1/2" from each end.
Score the 4-1/2" side at 1-1/2", 2", 3-1/2" and 4"

Each box has a 1/2" strip of  Holiday Cheer Patterned Paper Pack wrapped around them as a belly band.  All the decoration is glued to the belly band and not the box.
 The greenery is from Lovely Layers Pinecone Dies.  Not only is the greenery beautiful but the layered pine cones in this die set are just gorgeous!
I've colored more chocolates from the Sweet Treats Stamp Set and Dies with Copic markers.  I'm pretty sure I can color chocolate in my sleep now!  Each belly band has 2 chocolates.  
Then, I added a gold foil star from the Stacking Stars Dies.  It is the second to the smallest star in the set.
I tied the red and white twine around the band and added a small jingle bell.  
That's enough don't you think?  I do love layered embellishments though. *Ü*

Sweet Treats Stamp Set and Dies

I also wanted to share some of our home with you all.

I wish I could change it up each year, but this is the only place in the living room that the tree can go.

I went with bottle tree brushes for my fireplace mantle this year and big white jingle bells.  I have twinkling lights in the greenery and it is so pretty at night.  Most of the bottle brush trees are from Sweet Tea Living here in town.  The bells are from Real Deals and Craft Warehouse..

I changed up my antique typewriter to hold the Merry & Bright message and added a little berry and greenery.  The trees are from Details 2 Enjoy online and the bells are from Real Deals and Craft Warehouse.
The little stocking hats are wooden and are from Melissaannecompany on Etsy/Instagram.

The gnomes in my Pottery Barn chairs above the sliding glass door are from Real Deals.

Now to my favorite Tiered Tray!  
Lots of bits and bobs stuffed in this thing.  The snowman were a gift, Joy is from Real Deals.  White houses are from Target.  
My Rae Dunn mug topper is from FauxSweets on Instagram (Mae is an incredible food artist - check her out!)  I've shown several of her creations on my Instagram stories.
The candy things in the greenery are actually ornaments that I took the hooks off of and are from Hobby Lobby.

It all sits on a table in my hallway with my antique scale and a few more gnomes from Real Deals.
