just buzzin by box

Good morning everyone! Just a quick post to show you the last stamp club project that my girls will be making tonight.

I saw on Beate's blog a super cute genie bag made with the top note die. I totally wanted to do something like that but...no white bags. Bummer! So, I turned it into a little box and used some ribbon for a little carrying handle. This box fits four Ghiradelli Chocolates inside just perfectly. Yum!

My brain does not work mathematically...at all, so when the time came to make the little box I couldn't figure out what size of paper I needed to make the box fit the way I wanted. I believe I ended up with a 8"x8" piece of Certainly Celery. I believe I scored all sides at 2 1/2" and then just cut up to the center on four scores facing each other (I hope that makes sense). You can see from the side picture what the box part looks like.

Besides from Ghiradelli chocolate this box is big enough to fit a little gift (mini-book, piece of jewelry) inside as well. With the "have a honey of a day sentiment" it could also be used for several different occasions.

So...who's coming to stamp club tonight? LOL! Even if you aren't I hope that your day is wonderful!
