A Cardinal Gift

There are numerous gifts for my children to give to special people this year, and I like to add a handmade touch to some of them...

I was telling my mom about it and how I wanted to make some fudge to give these special people in my kiddos/our lives.  But I was in a quandry as to what to put it in!  She just said matter of factly, without even really thinking about it, "Why don't you just MAKE a box?  You're always making cute little boxes".

Um, duh. LOL!  Sometimes it takes a mom's brain to make your own work. lol
Thanks for the reminder that I can MAKE a box!  Seriously...why didn't I think of that?

So, I made a box. :)  Sponged the edges, and had my daughter help, too, making a cardinal out of punches! :)  It IS, afterall, a gift from her. ;-)  I'll have my oldest (age 6), do most of her own, I think. That is, if I can manage to let go. ;-)

Well, what do you think?

Thanks for stopping by, and have a GREAT day! :)


  1. I think your mom had a terrific idea. Love the box and the cardinal. TFS. I just might need a box myself!

  2. I Love this. do you mind telling me which "box" you used to cut this? was it a cricut cartridge? I would really like to make one of these. Cardinals have a special meaning for me.

  3. Aren't Moms wonderful?! This is a cute "box". Would you send some fudge over my too! :)))))) Thanks for blessing my day. :)

  4. You've got a smart mama, but I bet even she had no idea how cute it would turn out! What a creative creation! It's tastefully seasonal and delightful! Love it! ~<3~

  5. Love the gift box. The cardinal was a great touch. Mama knows best!


Go ahead...make my day! :)
