MTC~ Challenge Cookie Box!

Happy Mon.!

Hi~ya All!

A very happy Monday to all my cyber-space friends. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and managed to stay warm. It was quite breezy here, and we had a little rain yesterday. Today it is 70 degrees and sunshine, don't know what is up with this weather.

I would like to welcome my new followers, thank you for taking the time to follow me and leaving a comment on my blog candy giveaway. I will be choosing a winner in the next day or so.

Now on to my project, this is a cookie box similar to the smaller one I did for Halloween in CDS, which were munchin' boxes. These boxes will hold quite a few cookies, and this is the time of the year when I love to bake them. It nice to have the oven on keeping the house warm, and the smell of fresh baked cookies all thru the house.

I created this box for the MTC challenge, and the file was from Dana, one of the ladies who was hosting the challenge on MTC. It is so nice that everyone shares, and cares about one another. If you have a problem with something, there is always someone there to help you out. We have a lot of newbies that have joined since I have, and we always answer questions that they may have. I am in no way a pro, but we do have those on there too.

This file was cut on my Cricut E using the MTC software. I choose to take it 1 step further, and created a top layer on my oval and handle cutouts. This box takes two sheets of cardstock to create, along with acetate, strong adhesive tape, and ribbon.
The end results is fabulous, you have a nice gift holder to put your yummy cookies in. I used to buy the metal tins for my cookies, but they have become too expensive. Now I can make my own. FYI, when making these, use a sturdy cardstock, so that it will hold the weight. Be back later, have a great Monday all.

This is awesome Lillie. I just love these little boxes and they would be perfect to hand out home baked cookies to the neighbors. I'm going to have to look into this MTC software.
