My take on those little boxes...

I don't have the XL Sizzix die to make those pretty boxes I have been seeing, so I decided to use the tutorial for the drink box holder, I scaled the measurements WAY DOWN, and after some trial & error, this is what I came up with.


I have this one in my hand, so that you can get a better idea of the size of the little box. The two sides stick out by 1 1'2" instead of 3" like the drink box. And the handle part is 3" tall only. It would be better with the oval punch for handle, like Teri (Big Ideas from a Little Girl) uses on hers, but guess what?? I DON'T have one!!!
Well now to use good cardstock, and mass produce these to give some friends for Easter filled with goodies.

Super cute Denise....I'd love to try it out. I just make the drawer from yesterday's post. I was checking out Toy's site and ran into the demo.
I'll have to give this little box holder a try.
