Take Me Out to the Ball Game – by Heidi Blankenship

Today we get two projects for the price of one, as they say! Heidi created a FABULOUS gift item with matching card for the guys. We always see gift items for the gals, but not so much for the guys, and this one is SUPER EASY, plus I don’t know a guy around who wouldn’t like it! Heidi used one of the Clear Boxes and filled it with nuts, decorated the box top with paper and enamel dots, then made a card to match, which is just as quick and easy.  Gotta love that!  The trick to the quick and easy part is the use of a wonderful paper collection by Graphic 45 called Good Ol’ Sport.  Heidi just cut away at the sheets to get all the pieces to her puzzle, and it looks so wonderful.  She added the enamel dots, and DONE!!!  Take a look:

No stamping or die cutting involved. Paper, scissors (or cutter) and adhesive. FUN!!!

Honey roasted peanuts inserted in a Clear Box. Heidi used the A6 size.

NEWS FLASH:  In the past the Clear Boxes have been sold here in quantities of 25 per package.

We have broken down the packaging and they are now available in packages of 10 each!

When using the Clear Boxes for card protection and/or presentation, 25 is certainly not too many; however, if someone is wanting some for this type of gift project, we are making them available in quantities of 10, if that might be the preference of some!
