Hamburger Box Die - Num Num


DSCN4419Hi Everyone! At our team meeting Saturday, we made treat boxes using the new Hamburger Box Bigz Die 133724 and the stamp set Num-Num (wood mount 134141, clear mount 134144. We each picked a new In-Color. Mine is the new Tangelo Twist. I like getting the Designer Series Paper Stacks. 2014-2016 DSPS 133705 so I know I have a matching designer paper on hand for the colors.

DSCN4420Tip: I tied the White Baker's Twine around the front flap before adhering so I could hang my banners.
