All boxed up..

Did I ever mention what a great time I have making these boxes? They are so simple too! I got the cut file from Penny's Duncan Creations and her tutorials are so wonderful! This box I made for my other daughter. The first box I showed you for my oldest was unfinished. I finished it and already gave it to her so I don't have the finished product. She LOVED it! Inside I stuffed it full of chocolate, gum and other goodies... gift cards were placed in little pockets I made by just taping down the sides and bottoms. If you have a Cricket or some other cutting machine, you're going to get hooked at Penny's.
Here is what some of the insides look likeI spied around and am entering this in the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmarkers

Tuesday Throwdown: buttons
Creative Card Crew: for a loved one
A Spoon Full of Sugar: show some love
The Play Date Cafe: count your blessings (she is my blessing)
