Box Social

Have you ever been to an old fashioned Box Social?  Well, I don't know how old fashioned the one that I went to was, but it sure was fun.  I joined with other ladies from church at a local park with my decorated box filled with yummy food, and then we played the game where you could choose a box, or steal from someone else.  And guess who won the prize for the cutest box?  Me!  Although honestly, the best prize was that my mom who is visiting from Canada right now was able to come with me.




















I had so much fun with this!  Very girl power, eh?  I used an 8x8 paper mache box and trimmed with cardstock, but my favorite part is definitely the shoe and purse on top.  The shoe is Ellen Hutson's design, and the purse came from the cartridge Bags, Tags, Boxes and More.  I filled it with a chicken salad sandwich on homemade bread, cucumbers and carrots, a homemade banana oatmeal muffin, Perrier, chocolate covered strawberries, and some peppermint bark.  Yum - I wanted to have my box!  It was a great way to spend a gorgeous summer evening.

Cricut Cartridge:  Tags, Bags, Boxes & More
Paper:  The Paper Studio, AC Cardstock
Edge Punch:  Martha Stewart
Embellishments:  Michaels (ribbon), The Paper Studio (flower), Recollections (pearls), Stampin Up (clear button), Darice (gems)
