Take Out Treat Box-Crafty Sprouts!

Hey everyone! Can't believe we are so close to Christmas already! Are you all ready? If you need some quick little treat boxes take a look at my project today! I found these adorable glittery take out boxes in the Target Dollar Section ( I think Michaels carries them also)! I cut out snowflakes using my cricut ( it was from a solutions cartridge..sorry forgot the name lol), add an adorable Peachy Keen face stamp, some bling and of course a sweet sentiment from Crafty Sprouts Stamps, I added the sentiment using a Tim Holtz memo pin,
and tied a bow with Some Twinery Twine!!!
Thats it quick and simple..just add treats and your ready to give!!
