~ Apple Pie Boxes ~ two stamped designs

I love apple pies... especially those that come in a special-shaped-box (MacDonalds) =)

 So... I found a cute little template for a "pillow box," as it's called, and created my own apple pie boxes. The perfect size, and an awesome shape for all kinds of little gifts. trinkets, jewellery, potpourri, and anything you please.

 well, I actually made the card first. Then the apple pie box. But I think I'm more in love with the box! Both made with shabby paper from K and Co... and Masculine Motif stamps. Scrunchy ribbon from MemrieMare and some old, old trim.

 This is the guy version.

-- here's the girly one...

faded, beautiful raindrops from this stamp set... from one of my favorite companies. layers of vellum butterflies, tea-dyed trim, a tiny tag, and silky ribbon, with buttons.


Apple-pie hugs! I'm dreaming of tasting one now.

Thank you for visiting me today!
