MCS Challenge - Bags and Boxes

Good morning! Happy Monday - even happier because it is time for a new challenge at My Craft Spot! This week the challenge is Bags and Boxes. This is something I don't make that often - I'm kind of a card girl primarily! - so it was fun to have the challenge to break out and make something fun! Since we just started our homeschooling last week, I thought it would be fun to make some cute boxes to hold some fun treats to give my daughters to celebrate a successful first week. 

I cut these boxes using my Silhouette Cameo and a file from the online store using some Echo Park two sided paper. I obviously haven't filled them yet - but I love the stripes on the inside as well! I stamped my sentiment using My Craft Spot's Bon Appetit stamp set and heat embossed it on some gray Simon Says Stamp cardstock that I hand trimmed into a tiny banner shape. Finished off by attaching the top with some Sheer Black Ribbon from My Craft Spot.

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful week!
