Packaging Sweet Treats and a Web Chat

Wow, it has been a long time since I have blogged.  Today, I am going to share an easy and inexpensive way to use scrapbooking supplies to dress up a gift of baked goods.  Most of us who have been papercrafting for a while have a good supply of 12x12 scrapbooking paper.  I often find 12x12 pads of scrapbooking paper on sale and just can't resist buying them.  I use the paper for a while and still have tons of paper left sitting there waiting for a project.  This is the perfect project for that leftover paper. 

The paper that I used came from the My Minds Eye Bright Dots pad.  This pad includes 180 sheets of cheerful, dotted prints in a variety of bright colors.  The paper is fairly thin as scrapbooking paper goes, but it is the perfect weight for making boxes.  I used these boxes to package my contribution to my neighborhood cookie exchange.  The goodies that I included inside were very simple to make, so I decided to dress them up a bit by putting them in pretty boxes! 

Since these were for a cookie exchange, I included a card with the recipe on it too. 

Here is a peek inside ...

Each box holds 6 Nutella Brownies in mini cupcake holders.  I found the recipe here (at  Super easy to make and super yummy to eat!

Come back tomorrow and I will show you how I made the boxes.  Also, I will be hosting a live chat with Creating Keepsake's 2012 Dream Team member, Autumn Baldwin.  Autumn recently had several digital layouts published in Creating Keepsakes Magazine.  She has a lovely, clean, graphic style of scrapbooking that I am sure you will love.  You can find us chatting from 4-5 PM EST on March 8th (that is tomorrow) on the scrapbooking forum at Club Creating Keepsakes.  Here is a link to the forum.
