A Beachy Treat

My granddaughters stay with us at our condo at the beach every summer. I always have a treat for them when they arrive. When they were little it was easy...a new Barbie or My Little Pony or small toy or stuffed animal. Now they are 10 and it's a little more challenging. They love to go to the Boardwalk and to the Arcades. For Party Time Tuesdays Anything But a Card Challenge, I decided to make a tag and treat box that will hold some money and a roll of quarters so they can have a fun time playing games and eating junk food on the Boardwalk!

For my beachy tag and treat box I used Daisy Flip Flop image from Oak Pond Creations and a clear pillow box and stickers from SRM, two of this week's challenge sponsors. I tore Kraft paper for the sand, punched and stamped blue cardstock for the water. I glued them onto Confetti Cream cardstock, making it larger than the die. Then I cut through all the layers with the die. I printed the Daisy Flip Flops image on patterned paper and colored on it with Copics. The sentiment and cute pennants are stickers. I inserted some beachy patterned paper inside the clear treat box and added some ribbon and twine. I only made one so I need to make another one with purple flip flops for my other granddaughter. When you have twins in the family you get used to doing everything x 2 but you also get twice the hugs and kisses as thank yous!
