This box is really easy to make. I couldn't believe how easy it was to put together. It is a very large box too. It fit a ton of candy when I filled it. I cut the box base from Vintage Cream cardstock. The decorative panels are of coordinating bitty dot basic paper. Here's a picture of the box from side showing the decorative panels:
I also cut a medallion on my cricut and stamped a 1.75" tag using the sweet leaf image from Flutterby Friend colored in colors of pink, red and burgundy. A limitless layer die was behind the tag. The entire medallion was adhered to a Mat Stack 3 diecut embossed with a sizzix embossing folder. Some Pure Poppy buttons and twine were added to the sides of the box. Had this been for a girl, I would have used a box, but I didn't want to girly it up too much. I figured the red/pink leaves were enough! Some red saddled stitch ribbon, stickles and a coordinating tag tied with red/white twine completed this box. I also made a coordinating card.
I love the way it turned out. I got to stitch it with my new Sew Mini. It was so much easier than using my old sewing maching. I was so pleased with how to project turned out. I tried really hard to make it "perfect", with no little mistakes. Making a card for someone who really knows his stuff was a bit intimidating. I hope you all will give these little boxes a try. I think you will be like me and be surprised how easy it is. Thanks for taking a look.
