Cafe Box

How is this for a cute way to give some treats? This Cafe Box was so easy to make, if you have a Cricut and SCAL you can make one too. It was designed by the ever so talented Melinda. If you visit her blog All Things Crafty and Delicious you can get the cut file for FREE! Isn't she so awesome for doing that? And that's not the only file she has, there are tons (remember the cookie towers from a couple months ago? Yep, that's Melinda's talent again)
I was lucky enough to get to test a few cut files out for her and let me tell you, they are so easy to put together (I'll post the other one later). For my cafe box I used two different card stocks (for contrast) and just cut it out twice. I also embellished it a little with some ribbon, brads and a rub-on sentiment. The "window" is a piece of transparency that I ran through by Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. I filled it with some colorful candies because it looks better filled.
