ANOTHER "TWO-FOR-ONE" - Candy Box and Card Gift

Heelllo, my friends out here in the blogging world! First I have to say WELCOME to my new following friends.  Thank you for coming, I just love company!!!

After an exhausting week, I've just been given the biggest and happiest shock I've had in a long time, and I'll share it with you as soon as I find out more; so, sorry you'll have to stay in the dark for a minute.  BUT, I promise you'll know as soon as I can get more detailed information!!!  Okay, then...

I have a project.  I so enjoyed making that little computer box with 2 compartments that I decided I wanted to do another "two-for" (you know, the one I'm saving the cut.file for until I get 10,000 hits on my blog).  Anyway, this one is a card candy box.  To describe it, the flap folds down under the embellishment on the front of the bo to secure it, but when you lift the flat it opens into a card and tucked insde the card is candy because...  it's also a box!!!  How cool is that?

Here we go... !  Flap foldered down and flap up:

Open and it's a card and a box of candy!!!  YES, it's two, two, two treats in one!!!

It's cut with George and Storybook carts.  I hope if you cut it, you'll let me see what you've done with this.

Oh, quick update on the blog candy -- WE'RE ALMOST THERE!!! YIPPEE!!!  I'll publish all the votes once I reach100 followers!  And, thank you guys for all your support!

I'll be seeing you!
