Onesie Party Favors

Updated 6/16/13: see below in red
A quick and easy party favor for the family. I made 28 of these.  Finished size of this treat is 3-1/4" x 3-1/2" x 1-1/4" and will hold (1) individually wrapped Madeline cookie and (1) Ghiradelli Chocolate Square. Since we did not know if she was having a boy or girl: pastel colors are chosen in Lavender (Recollection's Purples), Yellow (SU Barely Banana), Light Green (SU Certainly Celery) Memento Black ink and Hero Arts Stamp & Cut Onesie.  Th cute little punch and embossed teddy bear is a Martha Stewart Punch that is popped with foam squares and embellished with 1/8" satin ribbon..................fun to tie a bow so small. The bows are attached using Glossy Accents.
 Here's the treats in the box: yummy
A closer look at the lavender one: each onesie is embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder. Base of the treat box is Recollection Vanilla card stock.
 The Lt. green one:
 The Lt Yellow one:
 Back of the treat box: Computer font used is "Lobster 2" and  a Marvy punched baby bottle
To make the box (middle section): here's a side view photo.  Cut a strip of card stock 2-1/4" wide x 7-1/4" long.  On the 7-1/4" side, score 2-1/2", 4-3/4". Rotate paper, then score on the 2-1/4" side 1/2" , 1-3/4".   You will need to cut slits at the 2-1/2" score line to make a "u" shape for the box.  Apply tape or glue to the 1/2" sections. Attach the onesie to the "u" shape.

A look at the Hero Arts "Stamp and Cut Onesie " Set used:
Updated 6/16/13: note the stamp+ die was purchased from a recent warehouse sale at Hero Arts. It was made exclusively for Archiver's.
Hope you are inspired to turn any of your stamp sets into treat boxes...............just create that "middle section and you are well on your way................happy day to all!

I LOVE these Onesie Party Favor Boxes!!!!!!
But I cannot find the Hero Arts Stamp and Cut Onesie any where. Where did you buy it from? Hero Arts has the Die Cut Onesie but not the stamp. Is this something new?? Please advise!! Thank you in advance!!
