Bitty Box Idea

Sorry for the delay - I've been having trouble with my Photoshop program. Here is what my older boys made for some Valentine treats, but they'd be cute for birthday parties or just a little gift for a friend.

These came about when I made the Bitty Box for the first time - the little tab that tucks into the box to hold it closed was hard for me to pull out, and I was afraid the kids would rip the box up to get inside, so I punched out a circle and glued it to the tab giving them something to pull on. Then I realized it looked like a tongue!! ...voila!

We used various punches to make the facial features and hair. Here are a couple close-ups:

We filled ours with M&Ms!

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Love these! My son has a changable Charlie game, where you can change his face around, etc and these remind me of that! Thanks for sharing!
