"Milk Carton" Treat Box

I used one of the snowmen images from The Hodge Podge Shop for this.  There are two images, one on each side of the box.  They're so quick and easy to color, it takes no time at all.  Make sure to hop over to the challenge blog because for a limited time, there's a freebie there.

I ran the box thru my Cuttlebug to cut a window and then glued down some acetate over that window.  The pattern is one that I downloaded from Create4Fun for this weeks' challenge. 

I've never made one of these before, so it was a bit of a learning curve.  Next time, I'll definitely use a heavier weight cardstock.

Bee Crafty:  41 Christmas
wee Memories:  28 cute holiday
2 Sisters 10:  anything goes
