Thanksgiving Treat Boxes

I am addicted to the candy wrapper die.  I just love it. Ok I have to admit that when I first bought it and cut out the first few boxes I wanted to pull my hair out and run away screaming.  I just could not get the folds right and the ends were bent and messy and the whole thing was just a mess.  So I put it aside and didn’t think twice about it.  After a few months of staring at my expensive dust collector I decided that I would tackle it again and this time I would be the one that came out on top!  I figured out the best way for me to assemble the die (see the current session of UStamp With Dawn and Friends!! for a video tutorial.)   Once I mastered the basic box I saw all of the potential these little cuties possessed.

Pin It Now!

When I saw them, I thought the place card idea too, but the mint thing is pretty brilliant. They are super cute!
