This is a box made with Stampin' Up!'s Big Shot Matchbox Bigz XL Die – love it!  I used some Tea Party Designer Series Paper for the box and a medium window sheet for the sleeve.  When die cutting the window sheet, I found that if I placed a piece of cardstock underneath the die, it helped the score lines to show up better.  I have ordered the extended premium crease pad so I'm sure that would help too (I'll be sure to report in on that!).

Anyway, the beauty of this little box is that the only adhesive needed was a bit of Sticky Strip to hold the sleeve together.  The bottom of the box stays together without adhesive!!  I wrapped a bit more of the Tea Party paper around a few Hershey nuggets to coordinate, and then tied some Very Vanilla wide grosgrain around the whole package.

Wouldn't these make cute party favours?!  (of course, you'd need to get extra chocolates to test for their freshness, a quality control measure I insist upon…)

If you purchase this die before the end of April, you qualify for the Get Connected Promotion and receive your choice of one Under $12 product (p 208 of the Idea Book & Catalogue) for free!!  PLUS if you place your order through www.yamstamps.stampinup.net (click on SHOP NOW) – you'll get a free copy of the Idea Book & Catalogue as well!!  What's not to like about that?!  Again, both of these specials are on until the end of April – TWO days from now…
