Bold and Bright Containers

A friend of mine has contracted me to create fun goodies for some people she employs, and this is one of the things I put together over the weekend. I wanted to offer her two options for a container to present pens and highlighters and such to her writers. This first one is called a 2-5-7-10 box, and I like the flap which safely secures whatever's inside--like chocolates!

This second picture is of a 2-4-6-8 box, and is the she chose, as it gave her greater height latitude than the other one. She also likes that my design incorporates a monogram, so that each woman feels special! I like that too! I tried a new technique for the initial. It's done with Versamark and Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Then it's sprayed with hairspray to keep the glitter in place.

Both were made with whisper white card stock, inks from the bold brights color family, and the Simply Sent Friendship Shapes set.

Which one would you choose, and why?

Oh my gosh - they are both so freaking cute! I love the bright colors. I think I like the 2 5 7 10 one the best - I like the size (more chocolate!) and I like the flap too - did you post a template? Mmm. Chocolate. Hey - that's a great idea making work treats for people.
