Double Duty

Pam posted this challenge at 365 ~ Today's challenge is called Double Duty because I want you to make a card that doubles as something else.... examples would be a bookmark, a place card, or some sort of pocket card. HOWEVER - NO GIFT CARD HOLDERS OR MONEY HOLDERS!
I was already in the process of making this box for our neighbors. How very serendipitous! This will hold some cookies for our neighbors who are always helping us out with something.
Top of the box is above (you'll see lots of my messy craft space in the background). The envelope is attached to the top of the box and there is an insert that slides out to express our gratitude in a few more words.

Another look...



Here's the inside:
And the bottom of the box which will be covered in cookies very soon!
Paper = October Afternoon Vacationer Motel (box top)
Ribbon = Cosmo Cricket Jack's World
Envelope = Sassafras Sunshine Lollipops
Bamboo Letters = Making Memories
I made the box with the Ultimate Crafter's Companion. I bought this a while ago and haven't really used it... then I started making some boxes and envelopes and tying bows... I'M IN LOVE! It's so helpful. Speaking of love... I want 20 more sets of those bamboo letters. They are fabulous.
OK, that's it. You think the neighbors will like it?
