Wrapping it up simple!

Panic! Running out of time, I needed to make 12 boxes to hold my blondie brownies and snickers cookies in. I thought about using the XL box with tab Sizzix die, well, that was my original plan, but with time so short, I decided to "cheat" a little and buy these kraft boxes from GBC. They were $11 for 25 boxes, which I felt was well worth the money when one is short on time to cut out and glue the diecut boxes together! If you know me, I can't just give a plain box so here is what I came up with! I used some leftover strips of DSP from the Holiday Treasures pack (SU) and some chocolate colored organdy ribbon. The large scallop circle is a Sizzix die and the images are from Little Dreamer Designs. They are the cutest!! Check out their site here! What do you think?? I loved the way they turned out!
Here's a side view of the box. Since the DSP didn't go completely around the box, I hid the ends under the circle.
I hope you are having a non-stressed week!
