Miniature boxes

I love to read blogs and especially the crafty ones.  I dream of making the cute things they create, but so far have only done a few printouts of subway art.  Easy... print and voile!

Then I saw this box by Infarrantly Creative.  I fell in love.  Then I got sad.  Her downloadable file was only for a Silhouette.  I don't have one and don't see it in my immediate or distant future.

But... I did have Print Explosion and decided after much contemplation that I could make something that might work.  I thank her for the inspiration.  Mine isn't as cute as hers, but it works and Miss Boo thinks it is divine with the Hershey Kiss in it.  What a fun gift for St. Patty's Day that doesn't cost much.

Here is the file I made.  Just click on it and enlarge, then save.  Pretend there is a straight line on the side that is missing a line.  You can click on this link to see the instructions for making the box.  And if you want the Silhouette version, you can get it on her website.
Or this one.  It is a bit different, and I did add lines to make it easier to fold.

This is the batch I made up for Miss Boo's class on St. Patty's Day.  She is excited to give them to her class.  I didn't have any ribbon to tie them up, so this will have to do.

So cute!

Those are adorable! She is so lucky to have a mom who pays attention to the fun "extras" that make the holidays all the more fun! Next year you'll be so into St. Patty's day that you will drive to Costco just to be part of the parade!
