Pastry in a package

Mom makes the best apple pie and chocolate chip cookies, but when it comes to pastry- Cassis Bakery's, made by Chef Dimitri, are the best. Miniature works of art.
They came to Bohoy Design in need of a package to sell their melt-in-the-mouth Macaroons and ethnic Russian Potatoes. The final design- an economical clamshell box with a diecut sleeve, color-coded to the product and logo. Mmmm.
