RemARKable Open House Blog Tour -Inside the House

This is how the box opens. I tried closing the box with velcro –but a small piece was not enough (did not stick) and a big piece was to tight and ripped the paper. So I covered the boo boos and used a large SU brad and a magnet. PERFECT! not to loose and easy to open and close!

Here is a close up the treat topper. And since the gift is from My dogs, I made his and her treat bags in Pretty in Pink and Bashful Blue to match the house.

Stop Back tomorrow to see the rest of the Dog House Box components and the box featured in my “the House that Jill Built” class!
