Teacher Gifts... Hot Chocolate Fry Boxes

I got the idea for this project after seeing this one by Mandy Leahy.

Cole has two teachers this year, so I wanted something that would be pretty easy to make and not too heavy on the pocketbook.

Aren't they cute?

They easily hold 3 packages of hot chocolate.

The stamped images are from A Sip and the little stamped snowflakes are from the Wonderland WOTG set. 

I used up some of my SU paper (retired), cardstock, inks and ribbons.

The fry box is a shape from the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, set at 10" for the cutting size.

For each box, I cut the shape out in cardstock and patterned paper, gluing the two pieces together for more strength.

The circles were cut at 2 3/4", and the spikey circles at 3 1/4", also using the same cartridge.

The snowflakes were cut using punches.

Happy creating!  :)

Supplies used:
Paper:  DSP Holiday Thyme - retired (SU); Cranberry Crisp and Chocolate Chip CS (SU), Colonial White CS (CTMH)
Stamps:  A Sip (CTMH), Wonderland WOTG set (CTMH)
Inks:  Cranberry Crisp and Chocolate Chip (SU)
Embellishments:  Cranberry Crisp and Chocolate Chip ribbons (SU), Colonial White buttons (CTMH), Natural Hemp (CTMH), Mocha Opaques (CTMH)
Other:  Mega Snowflake punch (Marvy Uchida), Snowflake punch (Martha Stewart), 3D foam tape, ScorTape (ScorPal)

* Cranberry Crisp may be a retired color (SU), I'm just not sure.

Mandy always comes up with something truly fabulous. Your boxes are beautiful and the teachers will love them! I feel inspired to create something like this for my son and daughter's teachers, too. Definitely a lot easier on the pocketbook. Happy Holidays!
