  1. Julie, I’m always, always amazed at your fantastic videos where you share with us how you create these beautiful and useful goodie boxes.
    This one is no exception, I love the gorgeous papers you used and the lovely way you decorated it.
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  2. Once again, you are amazing Julie! Whether you design yourself, or find your projects, they are adorable, and so creative. Thank you Julie. This box is over the top!

  3. i just love this box so much, I want to make them to hold K-Cups, i would like it to hold 2 and a square chocolate perhaps. Just trying to figure out the sizing, lol.

  4. This is a cute box Julie. Such a wonderful little “just because” something. Will be giving this one a try and added to my list of “to make”, but will actually make in a few minutes. TYFS

Have a question or comment? I’d love to hear from you!
