Now and Later Treat Box

Happy Valentine's Day!
I have a stash of boxes by my cutting table from products I have purchased and saved the boxes to make templates, well it is now time to do it or toss them. This is one of those boxes, it is from a package of Orbit Gum, over all size of the completed box is 2 1/4" X 3 3/4". I have a friend with two boys and when I visit her I always take them a treat, cookies, candy, etc. It is a challenge cause Mom doesn't want them to have too much sugar, sweets, so this fits the bill perfectly. It is a Now and Later Treat, one now and save one for later. I cut two vellum enclosure envelopes which holds 10 skittles or M&M's each. Each envelope has a label "now", "later" on the front. They tuck right inside the box. The paper on this one is a scrap of BasicGrey. The ducky was cut from Cricut cartridge "A Child's Year". Coloring was done with Copic Markers and Copic Airbrush System.

Here is the box open to show the vellum treat envies. Happy Valentine's Day, Hugs, Sandi

Another clever creation, Sandi! When it comes to candy, there is no "later" for me. Only "now"! LOL!
