Have a goodie!


Well it is Thursday, it is just me or is the week seem to be going by slower? We had to have a vehicle in the shop and it seems to be taking longer than it should be. With the weather starting to cool down in fact it is getting down right cold at night, we need that vehicle for my husband to take to work. Let's hope it is done today.

I made this little milk carton using one of Lauren Meader's timeless templates. She is having a challenge this week to use one of her templates. I used these snack size snickers bars as my inspiration. I went for the colors. I am not sure how long these little candies will stay in this milk carton since this is one of my favorite candy bars.

I printed the template on Dark Chocolate CS . The band is layered with Pure Poppy and white. I sponged the edges of the white with Enchanted Evening. I found some wide rick rack in my drawer so I put it on the bottom. I used some rub-ons on the top of the band. I used a double slit punch from SU! on the top and ran some grogain ribbon through and tied a bow to hold it closed.

Have a good one,
Thanks for visiting today,
Liz

Love the snickers inspiration, the color combo looks warm and inviting just like chocolate. Love your carton.

This is great!!! I love it. Snickers are great but I am not a huge fan of nuts in my candy.
I guess I know your decision on the truck now, I hope you get it back soon. I can't imagine daddy having to take the motorcycle in the cool air we have been having.

I didn't think Snickers could get any better but your box is fantastic! Great job!

Woo hoo - this is fantabulous - you pulled of the "snickers look" perfectly - love it. Very well done and I like the little branch extending off the edge. Thanks for playing!
