Cutting Cafe - Another Giveaway!!

This giveaway is closed. Thanks for playing!!

Regina Easter is not only a talented creator and designer, (I'm beginning to think the woman never sleeps!), she's also one of the most generous people I am honored to know. She allows her team to give away a copy of the new designs she creates if we choose to use them. How awesome is that?

My creation today is her new Pencil Box Template. This is so easy to print, cut and decorate. I chose to stick with my apple theme and send this cute box with the apple card to my soon-to-be a first grade granddaughter. I'll have to make one for her little brother too. :-) This generous box will hold up to 18 pencils or......




...look at what else you can use it for!! Depending on the occasion, it will hold several chocolate bars, stacks of Hershey nuggets, several small bags of M & M's, or small travel sizes of cosmetics. I bet you can think of other great uses for this box too!!



















Now if you''d like a chance to win this template, just leave me a comment telling me what you'd put in the box and sign up to follow my blog. I will draw a winner on Wednesday evening. This is also my 1 year anniversary week so be watching for some blog candy. ;-D

Supplies:
Stamps: The Cutting Cafe "School Days", Pencil Box Template
Paper: SU Real Red, Tart and Tangy DP (discontinued)
Accessories: Scor-Pal, Scalloped Circle punch, 1-3/8" punch, sewing machine, button, Crystal Effects, dimensionals



Pin It!

This is so cool...if I had it I would love to fill my box with the candy you have in the US but we don't have Hershey nuggets here in the UK boohoo...sniff! We have M&M's which I love so it would have to be those as I love chocolate and anything sweet really!!! :) so glad to have found your blog it's full of inspiration...thank you :) Bonnie x

My first thought is chocolate, but I think if I was sending it to a crafty friend I would make an insert and wrap with various ribbons.

Charlene, what a fun little box. Love those 3D apples on there. Well, let me see, since it can hold up to 18 pencils, how about putting some card candy in it. I am thinking, small punch outs with sentiments/greetings, ribbon and some Prima flowers. How fun would that be? I guess the possibilities are endless. Hugs and blessings, Sabrina

I love the pencil box. My kids are now in college and high school, but these would be cute to make for the secretaries in the office. Thank you for the opportunity to receive the template.

How about putting markers in it when traveling. Of course chocolate is my first choice.

This is cute. You have to make two. One for pencils and one for chocolate and rubber stamps might fit in there too. I have a friend who loves fire balls, just think how you can decorate that box. One year already. Where does the time go?

Purple Princess said...

What a fun box! You could really use it for a lot of different things. I would put some peanut m&ms in it or any other candy! (I am already a follower of your fabulous blog!)

I'm a huge fan of gift boxes -- this one HAS to be filled with brand new pencils in coordinating colors. I'd adhere some fun DPs for a perfect back to school set! Although I have to say I love your idea of chocolate, too!!

Yesterday I didn't mention what I would put in my box. Chocolate, of course! Since mine would be going to the secretaries at school, I think they have days they definitely need the chocolate! Thanks again for the chance to win.

Hello,

I am having my twin daughters Baptism next weekend. I would fill this with white covered almonds and have the outside decorated with white crosses backed with pink paper. I would also put some angels wings or pink & blue stars in memory of my children that will sharing that day with us in heaven :(
What is great about this box is that it can be used for ANY holiday or occassion.

I cannot find your review of CHA.....have you removed it from your blog? I am trying to find the pattern for the cute little paper tote bag that you made.

Thanks,

I like the school theme, and think it would be great for a teacher gift with pencils, pens or markers in it.
