2011 Countdown to Christmas - Day 3

Hi everyone,

Yay I made it back again for day 3. I really wanted to make a few more of these as it would have looked better in the picture but I ran out of time last night and this morning. I will however be making a lot more of these over the coming weeks for various events coming up.

I was out shopping (as you do at this time of the year) and ran across some little chocolates that are like mini Christmas puddings in chocolate. Now I love Christmas puddings so I had to buy them. Two packets later I thought I could make a holder to put a couple of them in. Now I have had the Two Tags Die since the 2011-2012 Catalogue came out and have only just got around to using the second of the tags. There are quite a few tutorials out in blog land to make these cute little boxes (check out this link to Dawn Olchefske's one and she has done a video tutorial), they really are very easy to do.

I made the Christmas pudding using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. The 'custard' was made using the icing from the Cupcake Builder Punch. The holly leaves were made freehand using a pair of paper snips and the berries are also using the Cupcake Builder Punch. Note to self these would look a lot better if I had sponged the pudding, and the holly leaves. But it is rather cute - don't you think? 

I am now going to help my DD's make some Christmas Tree cookies and hopefully get to watch some of the V8 racing from the Sydney Telstra 500.

Thanks for looking.

'Til next time,

Super cute! I've never tasted Christmas pudding, but if chocolate is involved, I'm sure I would love it!! I love that you added the little handle making it look like a basket of goodies! I'm really enjoying your countdown to Christmas projects! Keep them coming!!
