Surprise Box

When my brothers and I were little, Mom would make “surprise boxes” for us.  A “Surprise Box” is a fun way to cheer up anyone who is having a rough day, to entertain the kiddos if they’re having a “sick day” and are tired of being in bed, or to keep them entertained during a long car trip.

Mom would fill an old shoe box with note pads, pencils, small books and other trinkets.  I decided to make a “crafting surprise box” for my Craft Project Central project this month.

Craft Project Central, Stampin' Up!
It’s easy to change the contents in the box, so you can use it over and over. Each time it’s opened will be a new adventure.  (You may be asking yourself, “What does a peanut butter egg have to do with crafting?”  You are obviously either a) not a woman or b) not a chocoholic like me or c) both a & b.  Chocolate goes with everything.)

To get the tutorial for this project, simply subscribe to Craft Project Central for May.  These are almost as much fun to make and give away as they are to receive.  So go surprise someone today!  But hurry – the designer series paper and some of the other products in this tutorial will be disappearing June 1.

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
