Wow, did everyone notice I'm at 350 followers!!! Guess that means blog candy is coming soon!!! Welcome to my new followers, and welcome as a family-friend! I hope I can find you to personally say "thank you" for choosing to follow me, and maybe becoming a follower of yours too! And, remember, you're always at home when you drop by here!
By now you should all know how much I love boxes and making them!!! I'm just not really completely satisfied with crafting unless somewhere along the way I do a box!!! So, as I've just been itching to do one, last night I did this candy box I'm sharing with you::
The inside box lid has an envelope attached that holds a note card where you can pen a thank you, a to/from, or whatever you desire to note:
Here's the matching note card inside the envelope:
I used a 12"x24" sheet of cardstock for this box, and it measures about 6"x 3.75" and is about 3" deep, so it can hold a lot of candy (or even cookies). I used my hand-drawn draft to construct this box -- which trust me took many trials and errors to draw it right and get it to come together properly. And, yes, I even had to hand cut it out --- ughhhh!!! This is the part I always hate when drawing out my patterns/templates!!! Now that I have all the measurements I definitely will do a cut.file for it soon. Of course there's probably something similar in a cut.file out on the web somewhere --if it's even free -- as it's a pretty typical and standard shape for candy boxes: however, I really enjoyed the challenge of doing my own.
Well, this satisfied my appetite to do a box for the moment! LOL! Hope you like it!
Love you all...
I'll be seeing you!
