From bag to box

I guess I've been MIA again but I have been making stuff and just haven't gotten around to posting them. Here is another version of the gingerbread house bag die that I used on the post below this. I like to play with the dies that I have and use them in different ways. I made this into a box instead of a bag so it could hold more treats. It can be used as centerpieces on a table.
I put a piece of styrofoam at the bottom of the box and stuck all the candy canes in it. Then filled it with shredded paper. The outline of the windows and door is glittered with green Doodlebug glitter. You can email me if you want the instructions on making this bag die into a box.This is the pink mini album that we made last week for the make & take at the store. Everything was pink since it is breast cancer awareness month.
Well, the weekend is here and I will be working on my scrapbook album once again which explains why I have been MIA. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!!
