Yep, you read that right - there are EIGHT treats in that little tiny box! We all know that treats are rare on a college student's budget...but how fun would it be to know that as each week ends, there's a treat waiting for you?!?
I cut the box from the "abc's" paper with my Silhouette Cameo. I sized it slightly larger than the mini pickets that coordinate with the "back to school" collection.
Next, I created a band to wrap around the box. It's simply a strip of paper, slightly more narrow that the box, then I just folded it around the box, scored the fold lines, and secured the back with a bit of washi tape. The top is embellished with letter stickers, rub-ons, and cute little sticker icons!
Now here's the fun part - when the box is opened up, just look at what is inside!
The mini pocket kit comes with 8 reversible pockets (you see, the universe was working with me here!) - so I folded them up to use all 8 designs. I embellished each pocket with patterned paper, stickers, doodle pops and sprinkle shapes - it was so much fun choosing which items to use!
After creating all of the pockets, I started filling them with gift cards or cash - things any college student (or anyone, for that matter) could use and appreciate! I love that the pockets are just the right size for store and restaurant gift cards!
This would also make a fun "end of school" gift for a teacher - you could do one pocket for each week, or one for each month of summer vacation!
Thanks for stopping in today - I hope I've inspired you to use the "back to school" collection in a fun way!
