Clearly Easy Box

My husband's favorite day of the whole year is Thanksgiving. He primps the house for days before and cooks his heart out. He even has an apron embroidered with a turkey especially for the occasion. There's so much fuss and preparation going into a big event like that, I don't have the desire or the time to create elaborate little party favors. I want something adorable, quick, and easy.

CC&M offers a total of twenty-two different boxes cut from acetate, and I chose to show you the Butterfly Box. It was so easy to create! The simple steps:
  • Run the flat Butterfly Box through the BigShot machine with the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing Folder
  • Fold box and adhere the bottom and side with the exceptionally strong Killer Red Tacky Tape
  • Fill with fall-colored candies
  • Interlock top to secure

It would be a snap to make a bunch of these for a wedding, party favors, little Valentine's Day goodies for the kids to give away at school, a token holiday gift for all those acquaintances at work or around the neighborhood, etc.

Be sure to check back here on Monday (9/14) for our Fall-themed September Blog Hop. You'll be pleasantly surprised by all the inspiration the team has in store for you!
