They are continuing that theme, as this week's challenge is "a few of my favorite things."
O.K. . . . here's a few of my favorite things . . .
creating boxes from scratch
paper, glue, ink, stamps,
cookies (the homemade kind . . . not the store bought ones)
So . . . I bought these fall decorated cookies for an event, and they came in a nice big box all packaged in pairs. They are homemade . . . but they weren't made in my home. I needed to create either a box or a slide sleeve for some of them to give to friends. Now I love figuring things out . . . but I hate wasting paper as part of the process. So I tried to keep this one pretty simple.
I wanted one of the cookies to be peaking out, as the sprinkles were so colorful. I decided to go with a box, and not a sleeve, as I wanted it to stand. I guessed on measurements, as it depends on the size of your contents. Once I had the size, it was all about decorating. I stamped away to create the design where my sentiment is on the front of the box.
All of the product is from the Buzz & Bumble kit that CTMH had in their previous catalog. I love playing around with coordinating product. The back of the box needed a little something, so I used the reverse side of the bar code strip on one of the papers.
I think my friend will love it. I'm off to create a few more.
