Cute Treat Box

I found these cute little plastic treat boxes at Stamps & Memories. They suggested filling it with candy and wrapping a belly band around it. So, I took their advice and this is what I came up with:


Since this little chick is holding a flower for an umbrella, I thought it would be really cute favors for a baby "shower"...whaddya think?

I also thought it would be a really good shortcut for making a shaker card:



I used a piece of 3-3/4" x 10-1/2" cardstock...scored at 3-1/2" and then again 7". I cut out a 1-3/4" x 2" hole in the center panel, then taped down the box to the side panel (as shown below):


Stamps used: #A119 (Rainy Days), #5035 (Monkey With Flowers) and #6012 (Just Because).
