Cookie Boxes

Happy Hump Day! Sorry I have missed you the last few has been crazy here. We had all kinds of school projects and cub scouts stuff going on. Phew! Feels nice to be back to blogging.
I found these cute little white lunch boxes at hobby lobby this week and thought they would be the perfect way to deliver cookies to some friends. I have a friend in Boston that I promised cookies to, and I am hoping they will travel well in this little box. I liked these because they were a little wider than some of the other lunch boxes I have seen and they were only $3.99. Unfortunately, I used retired SU designer series paper....but you could swap it out with any of the cute stuff in the current catalog. I am on a stamping hiatus at this point - no buying nothing for gotta use my stash. I cut the paper into 12x3 3/4" strips (2) and then lined them with red sticky tape. The overlap slightly in the back and then used a different print to patch the front. The "fresh baked" stamp is from the PTI Holiday Treats set. I stamped it in tempting turquois and then used my nestabilities to cut a scalloped oval out of the same color. The lid has a textured flower (source unknown) topped with a felt flower and brad from the Target dollar spot layered onto the "from our house to yours" stamp from PTI. Wow! That was a mouthful. The top of this was a little tricky...but I just played with it until I got the strips lines up.
The second cookie box was made the same way...just different paper and colors. The color scheme on this one was Cool Carribean (retired) and Chocolate Chip. Same stamps - the flower on the top is a prima from one of Texas Jody Lynn's shares from awhile back. You can find her here. (I love her BTW!) =)
Thanks for checking in. Stop by tomorrow for a card.
Happy Stamping!

Just wanted to give you a heads up that you will probably be deleted from the Papertrey blog because you linked directly to your blog and not to your project.
