A Sweet Treat

Hello and Happy Sunday! I have some exciting news, I am guest designing for the month of September over at  StempelTräume Challenge Bog.

They have really wonderful weekly challenges and all the ladies are super talented so be sure to check them out. This week their challenge is a fan favorite ANYTHING GOES.  Be sure to come by and play along with us!

I decided to make this cute box I saw in the Magnolia Magazine. I made it larger though and cut off the tabs on the side so I could just tie it to close. I am probably going to use it a a small welcome back gift for school.
This cutie from Mo's was my inspiration though as a treat inside I filled it with salt water taffy as a reminder of a summer treat from the beach instead of chocolate like she's enjoying!
