Inspired Stamps Anything but a card

 I use Chinese take out containers to give out treats. I thought this would be good for someone who just moved in or comes home from say the hospital or military.
 I used the new Home set from Inspired Stamps. I colored it with Copics and added Stickles.
I made a tag for the top that I can write a message on the back of.
And in case you want an idea for what to put inside the container here is my favorite cookie recipe...

Lemon Crinkles
1 box Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme cake mix
2 cups Cool Whip, thawed
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup powdered sugar

In a large bowl, combine cake mix, Cool Whip, and egg. Mix until well combined. Chill the dough several hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Form one-inch balls and roll them in the powdered sugar. Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet several inches apart. Bake 10-12 minutes until the cookies are set but not browned. Cool on wire rack. 

Hope you enjoy the idea and the cookies. Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out Inspired Stamps blog.

Very cute gift box and I love those cookies. I mix them in my Cuisinart mixer with the dough blade, since the dough is so stiff. But they are so yummy!
