I knew there must be a way to turn the Mini Treat Bag Thinlet into a BOX.  So I started working on it a couple weeks ago.  With a couple trial and errors, I finally came up with these two ideas for boxes!  I took the colors from the fun Sale-A-Bration Best Day Ever Designer Paper and used the coordinating Ribbon and Button Accessory Pack, too!

Petal Potpourri Mini Treat Boxes
One box has a handle, the other closes at the top with the flower helping to hold it closed.   The Framelit has lots of little accessory pieces like the banner and “enjoy”…so I added a couple of those, too!  Want to know how to make them?  Go get my FREE TUTORIAL on Create with Connie and Mary today!
