Something Old... Something New Creations by AR




Hello!!!-So glad you popped in to my  Something Old...Something New Creations by AR post today.  Can you believe it? ---Almost the 4th of July already...where does the time go?

Each Wednesday Creations by AR Design Team show off a file that has been in the store for a while-designing a new look for past templates!

I whipped up these super cute Peek-A-Boo Cases to use for 4th of July treats! They are so quick and easy you could make a batch in just a few minutes!
Of course  I had to made a couple different color combo's...

 I found this fun candy at Winco! When I went to the big city, I found this holiday candy-this small town girl was tickled!!! Geeze-simple things make me so happy!
 I did not cover the window of the case with acetate, but instead chose to add the candy in a little treat bag, folded it over and plopped it into the case bottom. And I did not even eat one piece of the candy...but I wanted too. I thought you might notice a piece missing...


I added a cute little firecracker(not included in the pattern) that I already had and a little twine and I was done!

You can find this template at Creations by AR.

Thanks for popping in today!

Great. Now I'm craving Tootsie Rolls and salt water taffy. Thanks. But, seriously, these are so dang cute! They look like little lunch boxes. How fun!

How cute, Sue - and so sweet the way you have color coordinated them. I host a cookie exchange every December. We bring decorated containers for "samplers" of our cookies so each person takes a sampler of every one else's cookies. This little box would be perfect! thanks for the link. hugs, de
