Treat Boxes for Valentine's Day

I was at Michaels yesterday and I happened to walk by the cake decorating aisle. Wilton, the cake decorating company, has a bunch of new products out now for brownies. There were special cutters, spatulas and other utensils, as well as some fun packaging ideas. One of the packages was a flap box for individual brownies. I looked at the package all over trying to figure out if I could reproduce one without buying it. It took some doing but I think I've got it! Of course, there is probably a source of this online. If you know of a site, please let me know!

It is a small square box that you make from a square piece of paper. Through my trial and error I made three different sizes. The largest one is from a 6" square, the medium is from a 5" square (cut from the same piece of 8.5" x 11" piece of cardstock) and the tiny pink one is from a 4.25" square (half of an A Muse notecard). Here is a peek at the inside:

I managed to make each one have a slightly different closure, too. I just love the tiny one; it is the perfect size for one square of Ghirardelli chocolate!

Of course, I made little tags using the new chocolate assortment stamp. You can see everything now online, as well as in stores, so go have a look!  A Muse has some really exciting news, too, a new forum and Design Studio!!!  GO here to read all the details.
