I'm always looking for ways to recycle the plastic boxes my PTI stamps come in. Believe me, I have TONS of these things sitting around lol! So I came up with these goodies bags for my daughters class mates. In all I made 26 of them, and was SO happy to use up 26 boxes! Below are the 4 different designs I made.
I filled them with a variety of items. Most of these were dollar store finds, so it really didn't cost that much! I still want to add a homemade cookie in a glassine bag but I haven't made those yet.
To make these, I flattened the plastic box and trimmed off the top closure plus a bit more (used my Tonic guillotene cutter). I only decorated the fronts of the boxes, that saved on time and paper.
I punched holes in both sides of the box, and used another dollar store find to make the handle. Aren't these pine pipe cleaners cute! These were really a lot easier than doing ribbon handles, plus I love that they stand up on their own! I also bought silver and gold pipe cleaners and used the silver on the box above.
I put some red paper shreds in the bottom of each box as a "nest" for the goodies :)
I used PTI's Tiny Treats Christmas stamps to make these, and did some quick Copic coloring. I really LOVE how they turned out, and I hope Ali's classmates do too!
Do you have some fun plans for the weekend? We're going to be doing our baking, Christmas cookies, mini loaves, and some treat mixes. I'll have more ideas to share with you in a few days ;)
