Help me, please. I'm trying to figure out how I'm to ship a treat container, including the treat, in a bubble wrap envelope without smashing. How about the envelope and the clear envelope? I'm guessing I'm to eliminate the conventional envelope and use a zip lock bag for the treat box?

Brenda. what if you put thin cardboard aka chipboard ( think empty cereal, cracker, tissue box thin cardboard) on the inside of an padded envelope?
My box I have been filling is so full I have to look for something flat to make, Im thinking maybe a teabag holder type thing some how. ( plus it may not smoosh in the mail)
I think I'm going to go to the gym and work out (kick out the frustration), then get groceries. I'll purchase a tin of mints, or something like that, glam it up, and hope it survives the shipping. I've searched everywhere for something that would protect the project. The best I can find is a stampin' up plastic container. I've already sent three envelopes of cards. Not a box. Live and learn-- I'll know better next year.

After deciding what to make for this challenge, I was having issues getting the silver part in. I decided to use silver tiny glass marbles...Well...they don't always work great.
Thanks for this challenging challenge. I had fun!
Here is my Treat Holder
Hi everyone, I'm at work so I'm sorry I'm having a hard time being here and answering you questions
Interesting question on mailing the treats, I've treats mailed from MI to both OR and TX in a bubble envelope and my nieces have never reported a problem with the treats. Now granted I usually do something like a hershey bar, a kit kat, or my personal fall back - ghiradelli.
Had a time figuring out a treat holder that would survive the trip....but I've been wanting to make these teabag holders for awhile now....so much fun, I may make them for the kids at work for Christmas....thx for the fun challenge
