S'MORES box for my sister...

My sister's family LOVES camping...she, not so much, but she does love that my BIL does all the cooking by campfire and my niece and nephew LOVE S'Mores!!! 

They are going on their last camping trip of the Summer so I made them this cute box using Rustic Trail (retired but one of my favorite "outdoorsy" paper packets!!!)...I got the inspiration here but didn't have an extra tin so I decided to use this....a to-go box from McAlisters (they catered our NSD All-Day Crop and I saved my box)....you'll notice that my top is already decorated...it was an after-thought that I might need to take a picture of the "original" first...lol


----------------------
Here's the finished product....I free-handed the twig and cut out of Cocoa Cardstock and sanded...the marshmallow is a 1" x 1-1/4" piece of White Daisy Cardstock....I just rounded the edges with my scissors and ink distressed with Cocoa Ink and a Sponge Dauber



------------------------
I just had to decorate a clothes-pin for my sister to use just in case they don't eat all the marshmallows....

OMG...how freaking CUTE!!! I LOVE the marshmallow on the front!! And the decorated clothespin is a nice touch. I would have never thought of including it. It's been wonderful being on the H2H DT w/ you and getting to know you a little bit. I'm sure I'll be seeing you around :)
