Thank You Box

I have had this little box sitting on my desk for months. And I've been waiting for just the right "thing" to use it for. Don't you love when something just "comes" to you and then you make it and it turns out great!?? I love when that happens! I am so happy about this's full of little truffles...yum!! My girlfriend will be the recepient of this little box...and I'm so excited to give it to her! I found the box at a store in seattle called Paper Zone, I really miss that store!! They have fantastic deals on everything you need for paper crafting measures 3X3X2" Perfect size for some tiny cards...treats, whatever your fancy! So, I pulled out the beautiful Linen Prints designer it!! I wrapped the 1 3/4"x12" strip around the box and brought the ends together on the front of the box. I used the flower from In the Spotlight and the great 5-petal flower punch to make some great flowers! I love using the sticker rhinestones! The olive ones are by MM and the small clear stones are from paperstudio. I really don't think you can have enough bling!! Super Duper easy...nothing to it at all! And quite a fun package! I'm going to wrap it up in a cello bag...funsies!! I did pop the vanilla/chocolate chip flowers with dimensionals...for some great pop! The card is just slightly smaller thana 3"square, I wanted it to fit inside the I just made a 2 7/8" square.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up! unless noted. Old olive, Very vanilla, and chocolate chip c/s, old olive and chocolate chip classic ink, In the Spotlight and All Holidays stamp sets, Linen Prints Designer Paper, small oval punch, 5 petal flower punch, rinestone stickers(MM, Paperstudio), box (Paperzone).

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great one!
