I was actually looking for something else when I came across this idea on Nicole Heady's Capture the Moment blog. While I didn't use the same clear box Nicole used for her project, I did use a box from Papertrey Ink. It was one of the boxes in which a stamp set was originally packaged. As the dimensions of the box I used are different from the one she used, my paper dimensions are different as well. Nonetheless, it was quick and fun and made use of something I probably would have eventually thrown away. While I'm not certain just yet if I'll fill it with sweet treats or a paper treat, I know it will hold a half dozen or so cards and envelopes.

Materials and Tools: White Daisy, Breeze, Baby Pink and Key Lime cardstock; Sweet Pea paper packet; Black ink pad; Amethyst, Orange, and Topiary markers; Yellow chalk; My Favorite Things Eggs-tra Special stamp set; 6 by 6 by 5/8-inch clear box (cut in half); Craft knife; Cutting mat; Metal ruler; Grosgrain ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon; Terrifically Tacky Tape; Cricut w/Mini Monograms cartridge.

I've been saving my boxes after having seen that same post! You, however, are much quicker on the draw than I am. Love what you created!
