Just A Little Something

Take Out Box

I made this for my SIL's birthday. She loves to eat out...so I thought it would be really cool to give her money inside a little take out box. TOO DARN CUTE!



I used my Tag Time clear set from A Muse to make the tag. If you don't have this set...it's a MUST! I've used this set in the last couple classes I taught at Stamp Works. Check out how perfect it matches up to my Marvy Tag Punch! Yeaya!! And speaking of punches...have ya seen the new EK Success punches?! Da' Bomb!! That birthday candle border is a new one I just picked up today at Michael's...with a coupon of course ;)

Back to the take out box. I got the template from the SU website here. All I did was print it off on my white cs and cut it out. I punched holes on the sides and put eyelets on. There's also an eyelet on the hole of the tag. The handle is made from black craft wire. I doubled it and loosely twisted it together. The flower was stamped on orange cs and then cut out. In the center of the flower is a Twinkle Sticker.

These little boxes can be used for all sorts of fun stuff. Well folks...I gotta get some shut-eye now...have a great weekend!!
