Acorn Treat Box and a prize

I have a treat for you!! I love the cutting files that Regina designs at Cutting Cafe. My Cricut is getting used soooo much more. Ü If you know me, you know my brain is always whirling with ideas and when I saw THESE and remembered that Regina had an Acorn Shaped Card pattern, I just had to create a box.
I used the medium box from her Nesting Box template. There are 3 sizes and they also have lids (I didn't use the lid option for my acorn box though.

I changed the shape of the acorn a bit with my Make the Cut file to fit the front of the box. Before putting the box together, I stamped it with cocoa ink and Canvas SU! stamp. then I put the acorn together, inking all the edges first and then adhered to the box panel before adhering the box sides together. It was much easier than trying to adhere the acorn after the box had been created. I used Tombow's Mono Adhesive Power Bond for the whole assembly of the box and their Power Tabs for the buttons.

I created a tag "Treats for You" from the Halloween Mini Words digi set.
Here is a peek at the donuts that I filled in a cello bag. I bought some donut holes from the bakery, dipped 1/2 in almond bark and sprinkled with the brown sprinkles. I plan to make more of these and think I will make homeade donuts. I think they will last longer...that or buy cake donut holes.

Now here is even a sweeter treat...go HERE to comment on my box and Regina will enter you in for a chance to win the box and acorn sets I used to create my box! Hurry, you only have til Wed to enter.
