2-4-6-8 Boxes

Wow, first I want to apologize for how long it has been since I have posted anything new. The weather has been SO nice and warm the last few days that I have been taking full advantage of it with my kiddos. It has been so nice. :)

Well, today I want to show you a 2-4-6-8 Box. They are so easy to make and I think they are perfect for so many little things. This first one I actually made a bunch of, I have a TON of this fun Sale-A-Bration paper and so I just made a lot while I was at it. :) I should have taken a pic of them all together, but I didn't think about it, so maybe later. :)Then as I was making the first one, I thought, how cute would these be as little favors for a baby shower?! :) So, of course I had to make one of those too. :) I love it, what can I say...I just think it is so cute! :)

Here is another thing you can do with this box. Instead of pinching the top closed and tying it with ribbon, I left this one open and made a ribbon handle. This gives you a little more room to put things in it and just gives it a whole new fun look. :)
Just a close up of the super fun rhinestone brads. :)
If you have any questions about anything I used, let me know! :)

Are you shocked at how easy that was? :o) I made a bunch for Halloween and gave them to my neighbors. I frayed the ribbon that was tied on top and just tied a little tag to the ribbon (the paper was just too darn cute to cover up). Anyway, these boxes always make friends. :) Great job!
