Treats With TSG!

Today at There She Goes it is Treats With TSG!! The Trendsetters have put together a collection of treat bags, boxes, and all sorts of treat holders to fill with your favorite treats. My project today is a jungle themed favor box shown here:

My treat box today features one of my favorite There She Goes sets, Jungle Out There. The monkey is a big hit in my house with my little girls. For my daughter's birthday, she wants to do a jungle theme party, featuring the monkey of course. I thought these boxes would make cute favors for the girls who will attend her party. They are super easy to make. I loosely followed a tutorial from Beate on Splitcoast Stampers to create the box:

The top of the box is a sheet of 6x6 designer paper that sets a very festive tone for the project. I pulled the red from this paper to make the bottom of the box out of red cardstock. I also used this red for the accents. The box is tied with baker's twine, similar to a bakery box. It is empty now while I decide what to fill it with, but it will easily fit candy or a cookie to match the theme. The final size of the box is about 4.5" square. Here's a side view of the box:
