cute little treat boxes

hi all!

boy am i late posting today!!  ever have the best laid out schedule and then it just doesn’t seem to come together?  today was pezza’s last day of preschool so they had a big BBQ on the playground complete with a snocone – i think pez was in heaven!  i hd fully intended to play cricut cake this afternoon BUT not happenin…*sniff sniff*  perhaps tomorrow morning…..instead i will be spending my afternoon editing videos and typing tutorials!

since it ws the lst day of preschool of COURSE i just had to make little gifties for pezza’s teacher and the other ladies in the community center:

i made four and filled them with several of those new starbucks viva instant coffees, and some yummy teas, long with a goodie bag full of various pepperidge farm cookies – mmmmmm

the box itself was cut on my Cricut using Sweet Treats – makes it SO easy!  it is actually a cupcake holder but i cut it larger – 9″ which gave me a 3″ square box.  Then i scored the fold lines with my scorpal.

next i stamped this cute little coffee break stamp using inspirations shimmering paints instead of regular old ink – i really like the look you get when stamping with paint.  the inspirations paints work GREAT for stamping AND you get the nice shimmer too!  i take a finger tip dabber and dip it into a little paint.  then i tap it out on my craft sheet until it’s very thin and then tap it lightly onto my stamp – TA DA!  you do have to work quickly though so the paint doesn’t dry before you stamp your image!

i decorated the back too!  add Prima flowers and some of my glittered skittles and you have super easy cuteness!

i hope everyone has fun stuff to look forward to this long weekend!!
