I know you’re waiting on pins and needles to hear all about my trip to New York and how I spent the day with Sandra Lee, don’t worry the post will be up tomorrow. ;) But first let me start off by saying iPhoto is officially back on my computer..yay!! As a blogger my life is so much easier now because of it (thank you for your kind words of encouragement, I’m really glad I didn’t lose all those pictures). I’m now ready to get back to sharing tutorials with you and show you all the pictures I took in NYC. I’ll start off the craftiness by showing you a cute and easy gift box idea.
A few weeks ago I came across these cute little favor boxes at the Target dollar section (are you surprised? I tell ya..it’s a problem). At first I walked past them since I technically didn’t have a use for them at the time. But as I walked around the store I kept thinking about them and I knew I had to go back for a few packs. I’ve thought of a few uses for them and I’m actually hoping I can find more next time I’m at Target. There are three in a pack and are easy to assemble. These can be used as Mother’s Day gifts, party favors, teacher gifts, thank you gifts, really for any occasion you’d like.
I’m making these as thank you gifts. I have a lot of people to thank lately and what better way to say it than with a pretty little box filled with chocolate and peanut butter chip cookies.
To embellished them I took a strip of scrapbook paper 1.25 inch wide. I adhered it to the box using an Elmer’s X-TREME glue stick (can you tell I love this stuff? If you haven’t tried it, do it I promise you’ll love it as well). I then cut a flower using my silhouette cameo and glued it on using an Elmer’s glue spot. The center is an adhesive pearl I found at Michaels. Pretty easy right? The possibilities are endless with these cute little boxes. I’m hoping to find more for my son’s first birthday (we’re undecided on the theme but so far it’s between a goldfish and cookie monster theme).
Thanks for stopping by. Come back tomorrow to see pictures from my trip to NYC!
