Rudolph the Red Nose...Treat Box

My, my, my...where has time gone!?! Sorry I've been MIA over the last days. We have some busy weekends coming up, for Girls Scout, and I had to get some projects done for them. It's all good.

Our first project was created for my oldest daughter's troop. She decided to make some holiday treats for her Girls Scout sisters and needed "Mom" to create some kind of packaging for these treats. So this is what we came up with. It's perfect and suits her needs.

I decided to use the popular "Frankie" idea from Jen of Pieces of Me. Of course, we had to modify Frankie slightly (okay...a lot) to make him look like Rudolph. But at the end...we were very pleased with the outcome.

For this project, I totally used my Cricut. Accent Essentials and Plantin SchoolBook is what was used to create everything on Rudolph (other then SU ink pad & Pop Dots).
The treats my daughter decided to make were, Chocolate Marsh Pretzel Rods. Due to the length of the pretzel rods, we needed the box to be slightly tall, to prevent the rods from falling out. So...we found it, the perfect box. Cricut's "Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More" cartridge (can be purchased from Little C's...) is what was used to create the box we needed. Here's a side view glimpse of the box's height.

Once the Rudolphs were complete, we then placed the treats in a cellophane bag, tied a ribbon, and placed it in our new Rudolph treat box.

Details:
Technique: Cricut cartridges "Accent Essentials", "Plantin SchoolBook", and "Tags, Bags, Boxes, & More"
Paper: Stock Paper (unknown)
Supplies: Pop Dots
Ink: SU Markers

I appreciate you stopping by to visit. Please enjoy and God Bless~
