Several weeks ago, Lorna (moonls) and I did an artisan’s fair (the same one Lorna mentions in her earlier post). A friend of one of the other crafters emailed the following day and asked if we could make a box to hold her home-made Brazilian Truffles. She was donating a box of 40 to the fundraiser for a local health center and needed a way to show them off… and she was interested in getting some boxes for special occasion sales. We are not fools… the deal was that we too would donate the box to a good cause BUT we wanted some brigadieros in return! They were delicious and came in 4 flavors… oh, yes, back to the box! It is made from 3/8 inch walnut with maple and purpleheart stripes and purpleheart sides to the cover. It is finished in 3 coats of water-based poly. It is filled with brigadieros!!! The candy maker also included a stack of our cards with the box. We are still waiting to see how much they brought in to the silent auction fundraiser.
Thanks for looking.
