Got It? Tote It!!! Weekend Project!

Do you have the Stampin' Up! "Matchbox" die cut? I have not used mine as much as I thought I would. But then again the plan was to be using it more this fall so I'll give it some more time and I'll know then if I will get the use out of it like I had hoped to!!

For this cute tote I set a piece of decorative paper only over the box bottom part of the die (I'm trying to use up the retired papers here). I ran it through the Big Shot and folded it together. Then I cut a piece of Very Vanilla card stock 2-5/8" x 7-1/2". I folded it in half. Then I scored the ends at 1". I folded them out. These will be taped or glued to the inside bottom of the box. I punched a hole to "carry" the tote. And finally I taped the newly formed handle together and then taped it to the bottom of the tote. Just as simple as that.

Decorate your candies or whatever you want to put in this cute little tote and add some bling or other embellishments to it and you have a fun and quick oh and not to mention ADORABLE little tote!!! And here I had this on your shelf all along!!! LOL

These would make great party favors, make & takes, hostess gifts, customer appreciation gifts and even a fun stamp camp item. This is something fun for the kids to do as well! It's simple, no mess and fun!! Oh and did you notice that this time when I took the picture I actually took it from an angle so you could see that it was a box, an actual 3-D item? LOL I'm finally getting wise, it took a while but at least it's happening!!! LOL This tote holds 2 Fun Size Snicker bars perfectly!! Have fun with this project, I know I did!!!

Thank you for visiting today,
