Decorated Treat Box

So I have gotten on a kick of giving yummy treat for celebrations.  Recently I missed a birthday of a friend (who also happens to be the guy who helps run the wine shop I frequent-not a bad friend to have if you like wine) of mine because I was in NYC on business.
So to celebrate and let him know I did not forget and that I was sorry for missing the party--I bought bite size cupcakes from my fav place in NYC and brought them home--well you know I could not just give them in the box they came in!
So I took a white baked goods box from Joann's and worked some paper magic-

I measure the box and cut everything 1/8" short so that it would fit perfectly on the box, inked the edges, used some red line and started the over haul.

To create the 'window' I layered up my two pcs of paper and paced my spellbinders die and sent it through my cuttlebug--this took all of 5 minutes and the box was as big a hit as the bit sized cupcakes!

We are off on another week (this year had  flown by) so make it count!
Make it a great one and we will see you back here soon!


  1. Great way to dress up your gift box Bryan! And, a good tip to cut your papers 1/8 short--makes total sense! I'm sure your friend knew your were thinking of him!

  2. Love it! Great idea...i may have to use this for Turkey Day. ;)
