I have several dried oranges on my desk (a tale for another day) and I considered using one of those for a container in which to place a little treat. I figured that I would cut one in half, pull out any remaining orange innards and would have a little bowl to show for it. I borrowed a steak knife from a co-worker (Thanks, Cathy) and cut one of the oranges in half. The orange guts were dry, crisp and crumbly. There did not appear to be a good way to scoop them out and have a smooth interior so I abandoned this idea.
Then, a couple of co-workers suggested that I photocopy my face to be used in the project. Despite fear of blindness, I did the following:
After enduring the laughter of all of my colleagues, I decided that a freaky photocopy of Mom's face was not a good stocking stuffer.
I then turned my attention to the boxes that I had available. I used a first aid box and an Altoids box to create the two finished products. I used the stickers that I had, glue borrowed from the Office Specialist and Microsoft Clip Art. The Altoids Treasure Box is filled with keys from my co-worker's broken keyboard (Thank you Sarah!). The First Aid Kit Treasure Box is filled with a premium hot chocolate packet from another co-worker (Thank you Colleen!). Here are the finished products:

Now, I need to get to work, my real work - I leave here in an hour!
