Little Fruit Boxes-MTME

Hi Everyone! I have another My Time Made Easy project to share today. There is a new stamp set called Tooty Fruity available this month. There are great fruit images paired with punny sentiments, it's a great set! I made a tag set using the Well Rounded Tag cut file.


I colored my images using the free GIMP software, you could easily use copic markers or watercolor pencils for coloring. I paired each fruit with the appropriate sentiment. Isn't that picnic paper perfect on these tags? It's from the new Picnic of Patterns digital paper set.  There is a new cut file out this month called All Buttoned Up that I wanted to use. The top of this box is designed to look like a big button and would be perfect with the Grammy's Sewing Basket template. But you can easily design the top of the box to look like a fruit.


After making this tag and box set, I went crazy and made matching boxes for all my tags!!



The two tabs on the top of the box slide past each other for easy opening. And I discovered the boxes are the perfect size for 4 chocolate truffles...


...or 4 Ghiradelli chocolate squares!


I was thrilled to be able to make these boxes work for all my fruit tags. Here is my set all together!


All these new products are available right now at My Time Made Easy. Please check out some more great projects today using the August release products.


Thanks for stopping by today, Friends!!
