Christmas Gift Project #2 - Mini Loaf Box

Here's my second paper boxed gift for this year.

I found the tutorial for the mini loaf box here.  The entire project is made with one sheet of 8 1/2" by 11"  red cardstock and one and one half sheets of green cardstock; I used Recollections papers.  I ran the red side panels through the Cuttlebug using the argyle folder.  A 1" wide strip of red cardstock topped with a 1/2" strip of green surrounds the contents.  I used Mary's CardTV Stamps "Merry Christmas" from the Classic Christmas set for the tag.  So, what is the contents of this box you say?  I  filled it with my Butterscotch Blondies.
Here are some pictures of the box in the making:

and here's the recipe:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Butter and flour a 9 by 13 inch baking dish.

1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 eggs (large)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/3 cups butterscotch chips

Put the sugar in a large bowl.  Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl.   Stir the butter into the brown sugar until a smooth batter forms.  Cool to room temp.  In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt.  To the sugar/butter mixture, add eggs and vanilla.  Slowly add the flour mixture while beating until the batter is smooth.  Fold in the butterscotch chips.  Place batter into the prepared pan and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool, cut into squares.
Thanks for stopping by.  If you get a chance, please leave a comment.
Happy Holidays
