Another Candy Bar Box

Hello!! I always take a lot longer to finish up a project than I think I will...but, I finally finished my project for today...and here it is:



It's a candy bar box...I don't know if you can see the pink brad in the upper right had corner...but, that allows the cover to lift off like this:



Did you notice that I used my new peppermint stamp to replace the wheels on the wagon? Makes it look more Christmas-y!!

Here's one more:



Click here for a pattern. Cut along the solid lines and fold along the dotted lines. Punch holes (as indicated on the pattern) with a 1/8" hole punch.



Here's a view from the side, with the cover fit over the base:



Lift the cover into the position shown below to attach the brads (one in front and one in the back).



Then, just slip your candy bar in and decorate!!! And now for the giveaway:



To enter the giveaway...leave me a comment by midnight (Hawaii time) on Saturday, September 4...I'll pick one winner at random and announce their name on Sunday, September 5. Good luck!!!
