Butterfinger bites box

butterfinger box 1     butterfinger box 2

Good morning and happy Friday everyone.

Yes i found more American chocolate goodies, im so jealous i would move to America for the chocolate…and because i happen to love America and all things American!!! Must stop daydreaming…

So what you do think of this cheerful little number? Its good yes? I love the packaging for American goodies and its so easy to work with and build around so i thought about this box.  Just a dsp lid and cardstock base that you just take off to reveal the good stuff.  I love the brightness of the Bermuda Bay against the little bit of Pumpkin Pie.  I didnt know how much stamping and embellishing i was going to do to the box as it was very plain without any so i decided to just keep it simple i didnt want to ruin the box by over doing the decoration.

I used the chalk talk framelits and then fussy cut the middle banner to make it pop slightly.  Then i backed that onto a scallop circle (i think you can guess how much i love circle and scallop circle punches by now) and i think it was enough really.

How would you do yours?
