Here is what I came up with.
It's made using the milk carton die. Just cut 2 and cut off the end panel so each piece has 3 panels and the edge tab. Then just stick the panels together. Tape up the bottom, cut holes in the top and tread ribbon through the top and tie. (Thinking I may need to add a tutorial for this one as there are some little tricks I used that helped with sticking it together)
I really liked it but figured out it was going to be way too time consuming to make 20!
Back to the drawing board.
I found this really cute tutorial for this box HERE at Julie Davisons blog. Thanks Julie!
I remembered I had this cute little monkey from a retired set I had called 'Monkey Business'.
I thought this one was pretty cute but there was one more I had just been itching to try.
Ok. Now tell me this isn't stinkin' cute! I found this fantastic pattern and tutorial HERE by Kim Prince.
I added a velcro dot to the strap so it would be easier to fill with lollies/candy as I will be shipping them to my sister and she will do that part. As a last minute decision I decided to use my paper piercer and punch little holes around the edge and use a marker to create the faux stitching. I am thrilled how it turned out and so did my sister. And it didn't take as long to make as I thought it would. So if you hadn't guessed yet, this one is our WINNER!
Now I just need to make at least another 19...
If anyone is interested in more details on additional tutorials for these or anything on my site, please let me know. I know I get slack about those sometimes.
