Bright Treat Box

Hi Crafters!  I made a treat box for a lady in my church, it was her birthday.  I filled it w/ Hershey's Golden Nuggets w/ Almonds and another bag of Hershey's Golden Nuggets w/ Almonds & Toffee.  YUM.  It was so hard not to snack but I promised myself no candy!  :)

This box is from the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cricut cartridge and is cut at 11".  I flood filled it from designer paper from the All Wrapped Up Imagine cartridge.  I love the bright colors on this.  After filling it w/ candy I tied it off w/ white ribbon.  I love how it turned out.  In fact I made two of these.  Well, because of a specific reason.  You'll see...

Here is the full finished box.  Don't you love it?  :)


Here is a pic of the candy in the box.  I fit about 1 1/2 bags of chocolate in there.

The reason why I had to make two:


Yeah, Kyla jumped up on my desk knocked the box off of the table to the floor.  Then Tavis and Kyla went to town tearing off the lid and ate a 1/4 of the candy that was in there.  Luckily no reaction to the chocolate.  Stinkers.

I have two projects for you next week so be sure to stop by then.  BTW, I am making progress on my final project for school.  Woo Hoo!  :)
