Sunday BONUS - Andes Mint Box!


It's rainy and cold here today, and I should be doing much needed housework, but instead I've spent the day in my craft room making little goodies for my co-workers and people like the postman, nail tech, etc.  You all responded so enthusiastically about my Nuggets Box that I thought you might like my new version of it...introducing The Andes Mint Box!  Someone from the UK gave me the idea when she mentioned putting mints in the nuggets box, and I just happened to have a bunch of the Andes mints in the house, so here it is - slightly larger and sized to perfectly nestle 12 mints inside. I've layed it out so you can cut 2 full boxes from one 12x12 sheet of cardstock, with a 2nd page for the optional decorative wrappers.  It's my bonus pre-Christmas gift to all of you who have become followers and given me so much loving and encouraging feedback.  Enjoy!

These are so cute. Is there a way to get them in an svg file?

Cindy McVey said...

I haven't gotten into making my boxes in svg files yet. I might tackle one, but it will be after Christmas since it's not just a matter of converting. I would have to redo it in a publishing program.
