Treat Box

Anyone that knows me IRL knows what a bargain shopper I am, always on the lookout for something at a great price. I bought these little boxes a couple of months ago at Wal-Mart. They had been like $19.96, marked down to $10, then to $6.00 and then the sign said 50% off sign above the clearance area. That's right, I got a box of 100 of these for only $3.00! Actually, I got the last two boxes they had. They were originally in the wedding section as they are Wilton Favor Boxes. When I saw them I was picturing Halloween and Christmas treat boxes and possibly something at Thanksgiving as well. We alternate where we spend the holidays: Thanksgiving with my family and then Christmas with Kip's family and then the next year we switch them. We are going to be here for Thanksgiving so I make make place cards or something with them.
These were super easy and quick to make. The papers are from DCWV's Fall Glitter pack and the ribbon is from Michael's Halloween section. I didn't take a picture of the sides but the ribbon runs through the bottom of the box and then up the sides, covering the middle section of the printed paper. Not sure what I am going to fill them with yet.
My parents are coming to stay with us for the weekend, but I will try and get some time in my craft room post, but if I am MIA, I am shopping with my mom!
