Card night tonight!

I'm spending the day prepping for a card workshop this evening. We are creating three cards, two of which are male themed in readiness for Fathers' Day. As always I like to make just a little treat for my ladies and that is what I have just finished. So after a browse of Pinterest I found a really cute little box that I can stuff with chocolate.

Do you remember these shaped boxes. They used to come with a frozen iced lolly in. I loved them. The shape is just so appealing to me. I was  amazed how quick and easy they were to make.

I made a tube, stapled one end flat, filled the pouch, and then stapled the other end at right angles to the first. I trimmed the excess with pinking shears, that just finished it off nicely.  The little tag was made from Stampin' Up's 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" scalloped circle punch, the stamps were from the Sweetly Framed set and the paper was a Doodlebug Designs sheet.

I shall certainly remember this little treat box as it was super quick and easy. Hopefully my ladies will enjoy them tonight!
