Ding Dong

It's time to open your Furious Box Of Holiday Cheer!

[warning: if you are getting your box this week you might want to move along now before your surprise is ruined!]

Okay back to the cheer. When you get your box you should be just a little excited. You might want to put on some Christmas music before you even bring it inside. We here at the Furious house suggest something moving like the Nutcracker... but we're partial to nutcrackers.

Your box will be a feast for ALL your senses... so be sure you have your glasses on... and have blown your nose.

Okay begin!

Clear off some of that popcorn (I know genius... it's green too... or you could string it up for garland... or eat it... or feed it to the birds)

Hey what's that? Check out those cool vintage style looking gift tags!

The first thing you'll do is take out that bag of delicious looking caramel corn.

Then you're not going to be able to resist the cookies much longer so you'll take those out of the tissue paper.



Now if you've got kids you might want to take this out and hand it over... that way you can hide those dipped oreo's while they're not looking.

If you don't have kids you might unwrap one of these and breathe in the scent of Christmas.

Wait there's something else in there... I did say a gift for ALL your senses.


****************************************
Average cost per box $5.50 (for what is in the box that is!)
I got all the wrappings, etc at Michael's for less than $30 and I'm sending out 12 boxes. The rest is the cost of ingredients. Labor is free... you might want some sangria on hand though...

A shipping box at USPS is $1.79 with shipping of between $5- $9 for priority mail.
If using a flat rate USPS Priority box shipping is $9.80 (the box is free).
The weight of these boxes was 2 lb 8 oz. You will want to log onto USPS site and punch in the zip codes. For most destinations it was cheaper to buy a box and ship priority rather than use the flat rate boxes.

We just opened our Furious box of cheer. It was fantastic. The kids loved it and are currently gorging themselves on the packing popcorn! (Which leaves the caramel corn available for me to gorge on.)

I took video, so assuming that it turned out and I can figure out how to upload it, it will be on my blog soon.
