Feel Better Box

It's flu and cold season once again this year and what better way to make someone feel better than to give them a box full of tea and chocolate.

I took a cigar box, like the one here: 

and transformed it into this:

I mod podged designer paper on all sides, pink and white doilies, and added stamped images and molding paste through a snowflake stencil.  I added some distress ink to the paste to make it pink, ribbons, and bakers twine for the banner.  I also added some pearls to the snowflakes.  The clear knob is from my stash as well as the metal corners.

The Get Better banner is from the Nested Alphabet file.  I resized the letters to fit the front of the box and layered them with three different colors of paper.  

The bear on the front is from the Frosty Friends file.  I added felting powder to the bear paper to add texture. 

For the inside of the box, I added a tag with a sentiment from Unity Stamp to cover up the knob's screw and stamped snowflakes all over.  I also added a piece of felt to the bottom of the box.

I also made a bear card is from Frosty Friends.  I stamped a sentiment from Unity Stamps inside.

I covered the tea bags with tissue paper, added a snowflake, and ribbon through the hole.  I did the same for the chocolate bar, yumm!

And so there you have a  feel better box full of tea and chocolate for someone under the weather, or make it for yourself; it should make you feel better every time you open a tea bag and boil yourself a cup!

Until next time, keep warm and cozy!
