Today, I have the cutest little treat box to show you! Yesterday, my brother called, my niece wanted to know if I'd be able to make about 20 little favor boxes for a little pre-Christmas sleep-over my brother is "grudgingly" allowing her to give for several of her neighborhood friends the weekend before Christmas. Of course I said I'd do it. Knowing my niece loves anything Disney I immediately started scouring the internet for Disney Christmas characters. Well, just as I thought I had enough images saved to possibly use, I accidently came across this site with the cutest little Disney printables -- if was as though a gift from Heaven just dropped into my lap!!! LOL!!! One of the printables was just too perfect -- a Mickey treat box; and, a life-saver as now I don't have to figure out what I was going to do with any of the images I saved, ha! Here it is:
Here's a picture of the box where the candy/treat will go (I used a rather thin sheet of cardstock, so I added the red paper in the back to reinforce and make it a bit more sturdy). The printable requires one sheet of 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock and the instructions are included:
Isn't this just the cutest?!!! All I did was add a little puff paint, stickles, and messed up the nose because I was so excited about the box that I forgot to paint on a little decoupage glue to keep the ink from running before applying some Glossy Accents! But, hey, I'm sure the kids won't mind!!! LOL!
There're quite a few printables to select from for different occasions and holidays on this site! Yes, there's even a Thanksgiving Mickey treat box!!! Now, don't even think I didn't give a thought to you because I did!!! Before I closed out and forgot the site (which I'm known to do), I grabbed the address for you: http://family.go.com/holidays/
Once I've cut them all out, I'll fold and glue the sides together; I'll be able to lay them flat for mailing and my niece can just open, tuck the bottoms in and load them with the candies!!! Easy-peezy!!!
The only thing I'm not liking is that now I have 19 more to cut out!!! Phew! Oh well... Anyway, I hope you have fun with this sweet little treat box.
In the meantime, I have several projects I'm currently working on for upcoming challenges and blog-hops, so stick around, I'll be letting you know when they are ready to present really soon now!!! I think you'll like what I'm preparing to share with you!
Thanks for stopping by, love you all, hugs and...
I'll be seeing you!
