Very Handy Discovery



I’m interupting my baking session today, to share with you a pleasant discovery I made yesterday. 

I wanted to package my giant pretzel rods in a special way to give away as teacher gifts this year.  I went into my work area to start measuring and designing. 

I looked over to my shelf and noticed my mini cupcake box from the Homemade Goody Box tutorial sitting there…


 and wondered if my rods would possibly fit in that.  I took it off the shelf, held my breath, laid in one pretzel rod and…

…did the dance of joy!!!  They fit perfectly!

I quickly made up a couple of boxes and they are ready to go – I love those serendipidous moments!

I used this card layout as inspiration for the top of my box.  The poinsettia flower at the top was created by layering 3 – 5 Petal Flower punches and 2 small flowers punched with Boho Blossoms punch.

Supplies used:

Stamps – Four the Holidays, Notably Ornate

Paper and Ink – Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Jolly Holiday DSP

accessories -5 Petal Flower punch, Boho Blossoms punch,  Scallop Edge punch, ticket corner punch, Big Shot and Little Leaves sizzlit, pearl accent

Now back to my baking!
