Want fries with that ? ? ?

Stampin Up sells a Fry Box die by Sizzix and I had seen projects using that die but I did not own that die . . . until now... LOVE this die -- perfect size for treat holders, free standing, goes together quickly, and you can do lots with it --- from a Snowman, to a Santa suit, to a holder decorated for Valentine's Day, for Halloween, Thanksgiving and everything in between . . . Here is a simple holder I made using double sided card stock:

Used a 6" Wilton paper doily to decorate the front of this treat holder. Added a small clothespin from Mikes (they come in many colours and are already painted for use) and used a mini glue dot to put my ribbon bow on the clothespin. For the greeting "Thinking of You" which is from the Stampin Up Hostess Set "Good Greetings". Stamped that onto white card stock using SU Close to Cocoa ink. Cut it out using the SU Bitty Banner die set and put it on the fry box front using the clothespin.

Cute treat holder --- can fill it with paper shred from the dollar store and candy treats. Then put it all into a clear bag and add a ribbon to tie the clear bag closed. You can also put your treats into the clear bag and put that bag inside  the fry box holder. Either way you package this it is a cute holder. But why stop at a fry box????

Don't know who originated this but they used the SU Fry Box die and made a basket -- once again I used double sided card stock and here is my basket:

Using the double sided card stock for these fry box holders makes the insides look more finished:

There are a few videos on YouTube showing how to make this fry box into a basket and it does not take long to do. Just in time for Mother's Day and favor boxes and such.

Here is a treat holder I made using the holiday card stock from Stampin Up with a star die from Little B and the greeting is from the Stampin Up Hostess stamp set Good Greetings and I cut that out using the SU Bitty Banners die in the Cuttlebug:

Here is a photo of the Stampin Up Owl Builder punch next to these fry box holders to show their sizes:

Lots of possibilities with this die and it will definitely get used for sure -- TFL and YOLO
