ps I didn't have the new SU! paper on hand for these samples, so your projects will be a whole lot cuter (and more colorful)!
This little holder is the perfect size for snack-sized Kit Kats or 4 crayons (thanks, Darcy, for the brilliant idea!). One paper pack yields 72 boxes. Additional supplies: 12" trimmer with scoring blade, adhesive, black, orange, and white paper (approx. 4 sheets of each, or purchase from me for $.35 ea)
Drink Holder Hanger:
Note: you supply the treats to fill the boxes and pouches.

The book is made from two covered pieces of book board and 4 badge holders (with the holes trimmed off), and bound with a screw post. Confession: I didn't end up using the ones I purchased for this project as the book was too thick for them. I used some posts that I had saved from a broken post-bound album. Funny that I saved them, yet didn't figure out what I could use them for until I had bought new ones! Finished size is 2 5/8" x 3 3/4", perfect for tossing into a purse. Each photo is backed by a collage of the boys' favorite things right now (subject to change weekly, so it's neat to capture this small moment in their lives).
Stampin' Up! sets used: Stamp of Authenticity, Genuine Articles, Letterpress Alphabet, Classic Alphabet (all retired--all great sets, what were they thinking?!)

Some watercolor painting with the boys and a quote I love:
A page torn from the Anthropologie catalog I received today. Loving the bright colors on the white background overlaid with black.
