Anything Goes Challenge!

Hello crafty friends:

I prepared a box for this challenge. I used Art Philosophy Cartridge for my box.  I press Fit a Page button to fit the 12" X 12" paper.  My owl is from Paisley Cartridge cut at 2.75".  The owl eyes is from Peachy Keen Stamp.  For some of the layers of my owl, I used my Xyron to add glitter on them.

Here is my box:

This is front view of the box.

This is a back view.

I put inside the box Polvorones, what is this?  These are puertorrican cookies.  This cookies are awesome.  Below is the recipe. 


 Ingredients: (40 servings)

½ cup shortening
½ cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
½ teaspoon almond extract
2 ½ cup all-purpose flour


 Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease two trays of cookies.  With a wooden spoon mix butter, shortening until combine.  Add sugar, egg yolks and almond extract until smooth.  Then add the flour gradually. Once mixed knead the mixture a little and form into small balls.

Place on a tray leaving a 1" space between Polvorones.  Press a finger into the center of each ball and place in center guava paste or sprinkles.  Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.

This box joins the following challenges:
