Sometimes you just need to surprise your kids and make them smile.
And that is what I was going for when I put this into my son’s lunch. (He never has a treat in there, so I am sure he was thrilled.)
The best part? This was so easy to make. (For more information on it, you can head over the the Paper Crafts Connections blog. There are some other kids ideas there, too.)
Start with a 10 ¼” x 4” piece of cardstock (I used Bazzill) and add score lines at 2”, 2 ¼”, 6 ¼”, and 6 ½”. That is it! Just fold it up and you have a cookie holder. I also added a die cut window with the new Lawn Fawn Puffy Star die to the front panel so you could see the cookie inside. Here is what it looks like unfolded…
After I put a cookie in, I used an old Thicker letter sticker to hold it closed.
I had to add some stamping, of course… with a repeated Hero Arts circle (a great image!) and a Paper Smooches pencil. And I stretched a die cut banner (with a computer-generated greeting using the Ever After free font) across the star opening.
Here is a look at the awesome Lawn Fawn Puffy Star nesting dies set I used for the window. Adorable, huh?
And the repeated circles? It is from this Hero Arts set. Lots of good images here for building backgrounds on many styles of cards.
Colin loved this treat. I bet your little one would, too. Do you ever do any lunch surprises? Would love to hear ideas.
