It's a Charlie Brown kinda thing

The Creative Princess had this on her blog yesterday.  She got her idea from the Crafty Lumberjacks.
I know  my pictures are bad.  They made this from a post office mailing box.  So yesterday when I took Hank to the vet, I made a quick stop and got 3 boxes.  They are less than $5 each.

Now you can learn by my mistakes.  I opened the box at the bottom.  It was just easier at the time.  I really don't think that you would have to.  Then I punched holes where I wanted the lights to be.  I punched a couple too many.  I used the 20 light strand.  I didn't want there to be too much heat from the lights.  At first they wouldn't stay in the holes.  So I used a little of hot glue.  If your holes are small enough they would stay in without.  Then when it came to closing the box, where I cut it looked ragged.  This was the only ribbon I could find.  A lighter color would have been better.  But, isn't it cute.  If you mess up the picture is also on the back. 

So I am off to spend a little time with my surrogate grands.  Just so happens that two of my other grands will be there too.    HUGS

P.S. Little Hank is returning to normal.  Of course, after I took him to the vet.

What a cute idea! I love Charlie Brown stuff. I heard that is the theme in the Macy's store front window in NYC this year too.
