Bug Box

Today is my day to post for Trendy Twine and I am sharing a fun way to package treats for the young boys in our lives!  I started out by using a Kraft Gable Box and I had a lot of fun decorating it.
First, I added plaid paper from DCWV'S Boyhood stack to the four side panels of the box.  Then I wrapped that bright green ant paper around the center.  I had these fun plastic ants laying around and adhered them to the front :)
I created the magnifying glass in my cutting software, then added a sentiment tag and an arrow.
The magnifying glass handle is wrapped with Limeade Trendy Twine.  The bow that attached the glass and tag to the handle of the box is made from Chocolate Truffle and Limeade Trendy Twine.

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Limeade Trendy Twine - Lime Green & White Bakers Twine       Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine - Brown & White Bakers Twine
