Who doesn't love Smores? This little smores kit, probably won't make them quite the way you're used to, but it's a cute idea for a little someone. Fill one box with mini marshmallows, another with chocolate chips, another with Grahmmy bears and the last with licorice cut into short sticks and you've got the makings of a sweet treat for your little camper! Yum!

Cut one piece of cardstock 8-3/8 in square. Score it at 1 inch and 2 inch on all sides. Fold on score lines in all directions. Clip on inside score line to 2" score line on two opposing sides.
Cut another piece of cardstock 11 x 4-1/4 in. Score at 2 in, 5-1/2 in, and 9 in. Fold on center score line then apply adhesive along outside edge and just above 2 in score lines. Do not adhere bottom flaps together. Punch oval handle 3/8 in from fold.
Apply adhesive to bottom flaps and adhere to center of box bottom.
Next, I cut two strips of designer paper and wrapped them around the box and then used the Skeeter wheel to stamp two strips of whisper white. After I colored the skeeters, I layered them over the designer paper strips. The bear was stamped, colored and cut out at the end and adhered to the box as a finishing touch.
Cut 2 pieces of 2 different colors of cardstock in half (8-1/2 in x 5-1/2). Score each piece at 1/2 in, 2-1/2 in, 4-1/2 in and 6-1/2 in and at 2 in and 4 in in the opposite direction. On one long edge, clip to first 2 in score line to make tabs. Trim off the 2 in x 1/2 in tab at the end. Fold along score lines and adhere 1/2 in flap to inside of tab on opposite end. Tuck the tabs in on opposing sides and adhere in place to form box bottom. Press two sides toward the center of the box. Your box should resemble a milk carton at this point. Punch hole through top and tie with ribbon.
Decorate as desired. For my sample I wrapped each box with a strip of designer paper and then stamped 4 of the smaller images from the Under the Stars set on Whisper White and punched them out with the 1-1/8 in circle punch. These I layered on Bashful Blue punched circles (1-1/4 in) which I layered again on Tangerine Tango scallop punch circles. Each little medallion was adhered to a box with a sticky glue dot.
