Mother's Day Treat Boxes

I hope you all enjoyed Mother's Day.  I usually like to do something sentimental for Mother's Day. Because we were swamped, I had to keep it simple this year.

I whipped these little treat boxes up in minutes by printing the picture and saying on our computer. I added some scrapbook paper and pre-made flowers and button from my stash.  Although these are bag shaped boxes you could recreate the look easily with treat bags.

 I filled them with chocolate covered almonds from Costco. They were a hit. 

My mom's been asking for a new work bag. She didn't want anything fancy because it will get a lot of wear and tear.  I thought this would be practical yet fun. 
I love the corduroy straps with the canvas hounds tooth. 

And it you haven't voted yet, you have to check out this weeks projects on OMTWI. 


Hurry and VOTE HERE.

When I first glanced at the pic before reading anything I thought they were hand towels - those would make super cute hand towels too! :)

Cute ideas! Love the bag, I am thinking of making my girls book bags for the school this coming year and that is the perfect simple bag, I will be copying.
