Tie it Up - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday, sorry for the late post today!  Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Frosty and Friends Challenge, I enjoyed stopping by your blogs to see your creations!  This weeks challenge is Tie it Up, think packaging, or things that can be tied.  I look forward to seeing your creations!


For my project I used the "tie it up" challenge to create this cute Apron Box to hold some homemade goodies, perfect to have on hand to give to the Mail Carrier/UPS guy, or just about anyone!  That is if you can keep your family from eating the treats inside!  To create my Apron Box, I used the Crafter's Apron Template, cutting the card stock and Bo Bunny Snowfall papers with the eCraft.  To embellish I added Scor-Tape  around the box, then pleated some Felt Ribbon.  The image and sentiment are from Our Daily Bread Designs Baking Tag Set, the image is stamped in Coffee Archival on Vanilla then colored with STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils, blending with Gamsol.

What's in the Apron you ask?  White Chocolate Oreo Balls and Peanut Butter Balls - YUM!

I make these in my food processor, easy peasy!

Recipe:
1 package of Oreo or Nutter Butter Cookies
1 - 8 oz. package of softened cream cheese
White Chocolate

Chop cookies in food processor, add cream cheese and mix.  Roll into balls, place on wax paper.  You can then either freeze them until firm, then roll in melted chocolate or drizzle it on.  Or you can roll in balls then make a thumbprint in the center and pour in some White Chocolate.  Store in the refrigerator, or in my house I hide them in the freezer!  ENJOY!

Thank you, Lisa, for the wonderful sounding recipe. I have one question - did you use a 4 oz or 8 oz. package of cream cheese?
