Treat Boxes


I am really excited about today's project. My mom and I are going to a cookie swap on Saturday, and she had purchased some cool Martha Stewart cookies boxes. Which of course made me start looking for templates for cookie boxes online. I got a little sidetracked, and found this neat template. Here is the original blog post that it was on. I started making these, and then one thing led to another, and I added eyelets at the top so that I could secure the little treat boxes closed. In the middle I added some peppermint and spearmint candies, but I love that you could add just about any little treat to the middle of these! (In case you're wondering, I used rose red craft ink, because I was planning on adding some touches of rose color with the eyelets, and maybe the curling ribbon. But then I really liked the monochromatic look, so didn't add any rose anywhere else.)
