Whachadoin' Wednesday - Thanksgiving Favors
Good morning! Are you up for a challenge this beautiful Wednesday morning? Well, as luck would have it, we just happen to have one for you...and it's a fun one!
The challenge this week is to make a Thanksgiving favor. I have to say that this one had me stumped for awhile. I thought of several things only to toss them out as being too boring, too difficult, too weird...until I thought of this:
I don't know about your family, but when ours gathers for Thanksgiving, we always have tons of left over pie. What cuter way to send home a slice than with your very own pie box?
I want you to know that I went through great personal sacrifice in the quest to create the template for this box. I began by paying a visit to the drive-through of our local Burger King and placing an order for a #5 meal and a Cookie Dough pie. Of course I had to empty the box in order to disassemble it and that's where the sacrifice came in. Well, someone had to eat it! Once the box was empty, I carefully took it apart and traced it onto card stock and cut it out. I scored the box and then assembled it using glue dots to secure the seams.
I used the cute little pie image and part of one of the sentiments from the "Bountiful Harvest" set released today from Storage Units, Ink & More to decorate the box along with My Mind's Eye and Stampin' Up patterned papers. The bow is decorative but also functions to keep the box closed.
OK, now, it's your turn. Come on, show us your stuff and don't forget to check out all four new sets released today!
