here. I ended up, after a few tries, making my box out of a piece of paper that is approximately 5 x 7. You can play with the sizes of the score lines and make your box size unique to you. The folded back edge around my box is approximately 1/4 in. The surrounding "box" is just a 3 1/2 in. x 9 in strip of paper. I scored the paper at the correct intervals to give my treat box room to slide easily. The far side overlaps approximately 1/2 down and was adhered with Glue Lines.
The flag detail was cut using Accent Essentials on my Cricut. I nudged together two rectangles that I resized as indicated in the picture to the left. I selected Weld to make the two rectangles cut as one piece, thus creating my flag. The Flag was stamped using some flourishes from a Recollections set and my Coffee Archival Ink. The white, glitter brad comes from a Queen and Co. set so old it really needs to be used up.
I created nine of these bad boys for my co-workers, filled them with chocolate and left them as a holiday message on their desks. I truly meant to get these up to the blog sooner, but said job is consuming and time is valuable. I'm currently designing my Easter cards (I'm going to give it a try this year) and am finding my creative juices flowing a little slowly. I've my idea, but translating that to a piece of paper is taking some trial and error- read: Time. Hopefully, I'll have something else crafty to share with you before then.
