It was all my hubby's brownies before I saw this box. It is perfect for the brownies. I purchased it from the dollar shop for $1.5, and spent another $1 for the half golden gift wrap paper to go with the box.

I love it! Your pictures are beautiful, but the best part is that you do the same thing to your husband as I do to mine. "Yeah honey, I'll make whatever you want." ...like next month if you're lucky. ;-)
