Year of the Rooster

Another quick post:  I received this so cute treat box and had to share.  The box is 3 x 3-1/2 x 2. The card front finishes 2-7/8 x 4-1/8. It is Brushed Gold and a lovely Red shimmer card stock.  The stamped images are from Mama Elephant - Lunar series stamps
Here you can see one of the lanterns are popped with foam squares. The Kanji is stamped and embossed with gold glitter. Rooster is also popped with a foam square. Love the lucky envelope the Rooster is holding (yes, it is part of the Lunar stamp set from Mama Elephant). Of course, no need to fussy cut these images since there are also dies that accompany the stamps.
There is a bag of treats inside:

Happy Lunar New Year

A quick post: This year we celebrate the Year of the Rooster - it will be a year of work and lots of it.  My project consists of a pre-made clear plastic take out box.  Inside contains a Mandarin Orange along with some Gold Chocolate Coins that are embossed with Kanji characters. 
The Rooster image is cut using the Silhouette on a brushed gold card stock.  The FREE SVG cut file is from SVGcutting .com and can be found here. "Happy New Year" is gold embossed using a stamp from Mama Elephant - Lunar Extras.
Here's a better look at the coin "chain" purchased from one of the Asian markets. Loop it onto the metal handle for more decoration.
