This was a relatively quick project--an easy container for a teacher gift. I printed the fry box pattern onto my red cardstock using the draft mode on my printer. Cut it out and assembled it. The flower on the front is stamped with black craft ink on Whisper White, then embossed with black Embossing powder. I then used various bright markers to color it in. I thought it looked kinda plain still on the front of the box, so I added a 1/2" paper button (kind of a pain in the posterior to make), and added faux stitching to the yellow piece. The 'thread' in the button is a thin sliver of white paper.
For the 'fries', I ran strips of red CS through my crimper, and they're held together in a fan-ish shape with a small binder clip inside the box. Also in the box are a post-it pad, band aids, and a pack of soup mix. I thought this might be a good teacher goodie.
This pattern makes it really tough to make a 'belly band' around the box, so if I make another of these, I'll probably find/design a different pattern.
