created by courtney challenge #4

Happy Tuesday! I'm excited to show you my Created by Courtney Challenge for this week! The challenge is to think "inside the box" and either make a box or alter a box. So...

Here is my box. This super cute idea came from Jane at Whoopsie Daisy! and is made with four Big Shot cut scalloped envelopes. Isn't it just a fantastic idea? I LOVE it! These would be great gifts for your kids' teachers, day care providers or even grandparents.

As with the CD holder I made HERE I again used Chocolate Chip card stock and Hawaiian Papaya designer series paper from SU!. I added a couple of flowers I had in my stash and a thinking of you sentiment, filled the box with dark chocolate candy and the gift was all set to go! This was so, so, so easy to make! Thank you, Jane, for your excellent idea!

So...for week four create a box or alter a box and link it up to Courtney's blog HERE. Courtney will choose a winner and send them a little goodie and who doesn't like goodies? Wanna see what the other challenge chicks have for ya? Well, here are the links...
