While we were in Hawaii, our neighbor kept an eye on our house, made sure that the newspapers were not piled up on the porch and watered our plants. When we got home, as a little thank you we wanted to give her some of the cookies we purchased at the Honolulu Cookie Company. You can find them on Facebook also.
I used my Sizzix Scalloped Flap Box die to cut some paper I had from a Jinger Adams paper pack. I thought the color and print of the paper had a tropical feel. It reminded me of some of the patterns I saw on fabrics in Hawaii.
Then I cut just the bottom of the scalloped flap and the flowers from a white glitter cardstock. This gave the box a simple little accent.
To tie it all together, literally, I used a piece of raffia. This tied in to the tropical Hawaiian feel with the look of traditional hula skirts or thatched roofs.
I put a few of the cookies from Honolulu Cookie inside the box along with a small package of Hawaiian coffee. My neighbor loved it. I found out that her daughter was married in Maui and that she loved those cookies and the Hawaiian coffee that she had on that trip.
