Let's kick off the week with a beautiful gift set from Alexandra Morein! We love this bright and beautiful storage for macarons! Wouldn't this be a great host gift for Thanksgiving or to give as a Christmas gift? We love it! Let's see Alexandra's inspiration behind this great design:

"Today I am sharing a little treat box for macaroons and a matching card, created with the new Café Parisian collection. I think this paper is absolutely great not only for making mini albums, embellishing recipe books and making other décor pieces, but it is also perfect for quick presents’ projects.

I created a box for holding 6 tiny macaroon cookies, cut out a window in the lid, covered the sides of the box and added several cut out images from the “Café Parisian”. It did not demand a ton of time or materials, but turned a tiny box into a beautiful item, which will warm the heart of the one getting it ☺ You add a card for a personal message and your heartfelt present is ready." ~Alexandra
