Laptop Candy Box -- It's Two, Yes Two Boxes In One!

Well, as this "Superbowl" Sunday weekend winds down, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!  (If you're a fan, I hope your favorite team won.)  Buster and I aren't into football, so we pretty much hung out most of the day just having fun while the hubby was out with his "Superbowl" buddies enjoying the game.  The rest of this evening, I worked on a cut.file I'd had in my mind for a while and decided to finally sit down to do it.  I am really pleased with how it came out.  I'm posting a picture, but it doesn't look very pretty because I pretty much just threw it together to test the cut.file and to get an idea of what it would look like.  It's only one box but there are 2 separate compartments for candy.  I think the next time I cut it and really get into decorating it, it's going to be just the cutest thing!

Geez, I get so excited about this stuff that I don't even give the glue a chance to dry!  Pretend you don't see it, okay?

Sorry about the candy in this next picture but it's all I had left  from my Valentine gifts, anyway these are the candy compartments of the box:

I tried to dress the box up hurriedly with some silver stickles so it didn't look so plain, but that came out horrible!!!  DON'T LOOK!  Phew, I'm glad this is a side view!

About the box:  I used vellum in the window, cut it using the George cart, ,and found some keyboard pictures in a computer magazine -- cut them out, pasted them on and "there ya go".  The 2 candy compartments are a result of how the box is folded.

Where's the cut.file?  Well..., I'm going to hold on to the cut.file until I get 10,000 hits/guests and then let everyone have it as a "thank you" gift.  So, tell everyone you know because the faster I get the hits, the sooner you get the cut.file!  I'm already halfway there, and I'd love to see what you do with this!

I'll be seeing you!
