12 days of Christmas- day 9

Welcome to Day 9!!!

Today's gift idea is a little bit "out of the box" so to speak!

This gift idea was born of necessity.  My daughter is always digging through her backpack looking for her popcorn money and anything else little that she dropped in during the school day.

I designed a super fun little box that is sturdy enough to get dropped into the backpack, is practical and yes- super cute!!!

If you're experienced with Close To My Heart... you'll note that this little box is one of our new craft box organizers.  They come in a pack of 3 for $6.95 and you can click here to see them.

I simply trimmed some leftover paper from the Dotty for You paper kit available last summer (she loves butterflies!) and mod podged it to the lid of the box.  Once dry, I used Black Staz-on ink to stamp her name "Addie" short for "Addison".  I also stamped some little stars/flowers to the sides to dress it up a little.

These boxes are the perfect size for popcorn money, some chocolates and a little chapstick- everything a young girl needs!  Heck... I'd love one for my purse!

you'll notice there is no embellishments- really- you wouldn't want to put any on something like this that will repeatedly get handled and dropped in to bags.  It's better to save that stuff for display items.

If you are curious as to what these little boxes were designed for... click here.  We have a small organizer that holds a particular foam insert that holds these little boxes.  You can store your craft supplies in them... if you can keep from stamping on them long enough!  ;0)
