Black and White Birthday Present

take out box template

Last weekend my daughter went to a Sweet 16 party with a black and white theme. Luckily she had a black dress which still fit her!

I made this take-out box from a template from Mirkwood Designs. I enlarged it to fit on a 12" square piece of cardstock. (From Target, 2 for .99!)

We filled the box with Hershey's Hugs and Cookies 'n Creme bars, to go with the theme. The real present was money :), which my daughter folded into hearts.

I heard the birthday girl wouldn't let anyone touch them, lest they get messed up.

Love the idea of the origami money - wish our Aussie notes weren't plastic - no way would they stay folded!!!
