Ice Cream Sandwich Gift Card Box

Well, my Dad celebrated his birthday on the 1st and I am just getting around to sharing his card/box.  This is truly an original from me.  I saw a  sandwich cookie box that caused my inspiration to start working.  The cookie box was round, and I wanted to make mine rectangular like a ice cream sandwich.  Why the ice cream sandwich?  Well, my dad is always eating something like this.  If it isn't an ice cream sandwich, it's a ice cream bar...So naturally when I saw the cookie I got the idea.  I even went so far as wrapping it up in white paper for him like an ice cream sandwhich is.  He didn't get that part of it until we made him stop and think about that and then he laughed.  He liked his box but he really liked the contents. It was the perfect size to have a gift card with its base still attached to it, and folded in half.  I just could not figure out how to embellish this for a guy without taking away from it being a ice cream sandwich.  So the more simple the better wit the just the bakers twine and then a tag.  This was one of my last cuts I made on my gypsy before it broke, sooo at this time I don't even know which Cartridge I used to make the cuts for the scolloped top and bottom.  So sorry about that.  Hopefully, I can get a new one and be up and running again, very soon!

I used:
Cricut Cartridge ?? for the retangelar scolloped top and bottom
CuttleBug embossing folder Polka Dots turned with the popped up dots inward.
Brown and White bakers twine
DCWV The Glitzy Glitter Stack for the tag
Sentiment stamp purchased from Hobby Lobby
