Gift Packaging/Boxes/Tags

My Project:

I created a simple treat box from the Sweet Treats cartridge.
I LOVE the paper from DCWV's Pocket Full of Posies.
I also ran the center of my flower through
Swiss Dots embossing folder.
My ribbon for the handle is from American Crafts.


I enjoy making these little treat boxes to give out to my friends
in the neighborhood either for their birthday
or just a Visiting Teaching treat.

I hope that you will join us for these two fun challenges
over at FCCB and BBTB2 this week!
