Snack and Study

My girls are working hard at the moment - or so they tell me!! They live together in Leeds and are both in their final year of University. That means big exams looming and dissertations to write. I put together this little snack pack, to keep them going whilst they study.

This was really easy to make. I took 3 plain boxes and stapled them together, with the lids up. Then I added my DP across the front of the boxes and right across the lids.

Challenges - 
Papertake - Triple Tastic  - My trio of goodies :-)
Charisma Cardz - To 'Die' For - My sweet/salty/sour labels are all die cut with nesties.
Do You Stack Up? -  Add a Bow - I know it's only a little one on the top, but I was really pleased when I found this matching ribbon in my stash.

I filled 3 cellophane bags with goodies,
quality street for the sweet,
pretzels for the salty and sour jelly sweets for the sour.
Of course, as head of quality control I got to sample a little of each! :-)

This Catslife Press stamp is definitely one  of my favs.
You can get this one, and others like it, at Crafty Emma's Store.

DP - My Mind's Eye, Life Stories Roses.
Snack and Study stamped letters, MSE Adrienne's.   Lace and Ribbon from my stash.
Sweet/Salty/Sour circles were die cut from the DP and hand written.
