Frankie & Friends treat boxes!

I got the tutorial for these darling little treat boxes from the creative genius herself, Gretchen Barron. Go here for the tutorial. These treat boxes are amazingly cute and really fun to make!

I'm going away for the weekend before Halloween with a bunch of old summer camp friends and their kids. It's a rough & ready sort of weekend and a friend of mine always busts out her creative juices and has arts and crafts for the kids to do. This year, I thought that I'd take a project for them to work on, too!

There's always a pinata, so I thought that the kids could use Frankie & Friends to put their loot in.

Paper: White, Vanilla, Black, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Almost Amethysts, Melon Mambo

Ink: Classic inks: Old Olive, Elegant Eggplant, Creamy Caramel Markers: Real Red, Basic Black

Accessories: Sponges, photo corner punch, medium and small oval punches, round tab punch, 1 1/4", 1 3/8", 3/4" and 1/2" circle punches, word window punch, crop-a-dile, white gel pen, Big Shot, Top Note die, Bigz XL Fancy Favor Bag die, dimensionals

How cute, and what a great idea for the kids. I so miss our outings when the kids were little and everything was so exciting and new to them. But then I love it know when we sit around the dinner table and talk about "remember when." You are creating some fabulous memories for these children!!

These came out great! Those kids are going to love making them and even more so keeping their loot in! A camping weekend sounds like a good time - I look forward to hearing all about it :)
