House Mouse Challenge 31 - Bags or Boxes

This week's House Mouse challenge is bags and bozes, we were to create a bag or a box using this week's SPONSOR - The Cutting Cafe's templates and images.
This company really has a great variety of Template files & Printable images to download, print and use.


I used the Cutting Cafe's template for the candy box. I had acetate in the lid but due to problems with the camera I removed it until I had photographed it. I cut a border (with an EK Success border/corner punch) and lined it with papers from my bit box. I left the template at the smallest size and found that here in the UK we don't have candy bars the correct size for the box - the nearest thing I could get locally were Ferrerro Roche (or however you spell it) which wasn't a bad thing as I don't like them and for the first time ever the chocolates are still in the box. (Heehee) THe image is Mudpie's munch, coloured with watercolours and the sentiment, which I used as a flower center, is also from The Cutting Cafe .
