Baby Shower Continued :: Triangular Cone Shaped Favour Boxes with Butterfly Detail


It is these boxes that kept me occupied into the early hours last week!! I made 40 of them, and by made I mean cut and assembled too!!


They were cut using the Bigz XL Die Box Long Triangle ( this die will work in the bigshot / vagabond and cuttlebug using extended cutting plates and crease pad)


They were filled with milk bottle and sherbert lemon sweeties!


and i think they went down a storm!

Your baby shower bits are coming along and looking fantastic. I love the yellow for babies I wish there was more yellow items for baby's than the traditional Blue or Yellow.
