Dress up your Take Out Box

At Christmas time I usually take a little something to a few of our neighbors.  For some years now it’s actually been the same thing every year but packaged in a different way.  I make them an Almond Chicken Cheese Ball and include a sleeve of crackers.  I like to drop them off in the afternoon on Christmas eve and then they can use it that night or Christmas day as a yummy little appetizer.  It’s always a big hit.

This year I decided to use the Take Out boxes in the Holiday Catalog – which have also been included in the Occasions Catalog.  Inside the box is the cheese ball and the crackers.  To dress up the box I used some of the Crumb Cake scalloped Tulle Ribbon – it has been on the Clearance Rack – it was in a Holiday catalog a while back.  Cut a piece wrap it around the box and tie in a quick bow.  Then I added the tags from the November Paper Pumpkin Kit!  Quick, easy and they looked so festive with the blue & silver.
