Hello from Christine Meyer! The holidays are rapidly approaching and I for one am getting ready. I don't have time to do a lot in advance, but when this idea came to me, I just knew I had to create it and SRM Stickers had just the right stuff to put those plans into action! The new Kraft Boxes available from SRM were the perfect container for making an "I'm Back" box from our Elf on the Shelf.
My plan is to put this little box out on Thanksgiving night (or at some point that weekend) as we begin our annual visitiation time from the Elf on the Shelf. I decorated the outside of the box using lots of stickers:
I also cut out the words "I'm Back" using glossy vinyl in Lime Tree Green. And of course there are some of those fabulous Punched Pieces that we all love so much!
I plan to stick him inside like this so it won't be obvious what's in there until they open it!
Tucked nicely beneath him will be a package of marshmallows and four bags with hot cocoa in them.
The 4 X 6 embossed kraft bags are the perfect size for holding one package of hot cocoa! I used the chevron design. Punched Pieces and Take 2 Christmas stickers decorate the outside of those bags as well as the side edges of the big box above.
Any variety of SRM's clear containers would work great for marshmallows but I opted for the A2 Card Box. I decorated that with stickers from Say it With Stickers/Christmas and Live Life/Christmas. I love that this project all began with this undecorated kraft box from SRM!
It's little moments like this that help make special memories for the holidays! I can't wait to see their eyes when they find it!
