Mini Takeout Boxes

Hmmmm, not the best photo, my photography skills (or camera!) definitely need updating ...

I made these for my door prize gifts this month ... nice and easy, and a lovely little gift.

Tiny Takeout Boxes
Jumbo Wheel: Leaves a la Carte
Jumbo Wheel Ink Cartridge: Olive Green
Stamp Set: Carte Postale
Ink pad: Perfect Plum
White Grosgrain Ribbon
White gel pen
Square punch

Before putting the boxes together I have rolled the Leaves a la Carte roller over the box, then highlighted parts of the stamping with the white gel pen (one of my favourite looks right now!). I've then put the boxes together, using a brad to hold the sides together. I've then stamped the Carte Postale image onto white card with Perfect Plum ink and punched it out with the square punch and put a brad through the middle, and then adhered it to the box with a dimensional dot. I made the tags using Perfect Plum ink again, I've stamped the squiggle once onto scrap paper and then onto the tag so it is slightly lighter, and then stamped "Mon Amie" over the top of that, and then sponged the tag. Lastly I've rolled the Leaves a la Carte over the Perfect Plum ink pad, and then rolled that over the white ribbon. I've then filled the boxes with chocolates and tied them up (... and hidden them!).
