Happy New Year! I've been on holidays (and enjoying a break from reality!) so haven't posted for a few weeks. I do hope you all enjoyed your Christmas and holiday celebrations. Today, we all head back to work and school. Last semester, I finished up the course requirements of my M.Ed. and so begin my thesis project this semester. I'm excited and scared at the same time!
I've always wanted to make a little cake-shaped box, and this week's "It's Delicious" challenge at My Craft Spot has provided me with the perfect opportunity to do so. I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More for the box and used a Martha Stewart lace punch for the trim. I added cream seam binding from My Craft Spot around the trim. The large paper flower and leaves were cut with Flower Shoppe and I used little punches to make the smaller flowers on the top and back of the box. Glass beads were added to the centre of all the flowers too.
I finished things off with some Vintage Vanilla crinkle ribbon from My Craft Spot and a My Craft Spot sentiment from the Friends and Neighbours stamp set. Papers are from Cosmo Cricket's Double Deck stack and the tag was hand cut from a piece of scrap cardstock.
Please head over to My Craft Spot for some more It's Delicious inspiration, and to add your own delectable paper treat to this week's challenge for your chance to win a super prize. Be sure to check out the new baker's twine, stamp sets and Bitty Bags too - all perfect for your Valentine's creations!
