First off I want to announce the winner of the box and card set.... It's Phyllis!!! She was lucky number 91 and left the following comment:
This is stunning - amazing colors. You can turn anything into gold! You have awesome talent, girl.
Congratulations!! I'll email you for your addresss.
Still making packages... but I used an altered peanut can for this project rather than a box. The set was made with one of the new stamp sets from My Favorite Things - it'll be released on Wednesday. Speaking of Wednesday... don't forget to join us for the release party in the MFT formum on SCS. Last month it was soooooo much fun! I'm one of the hostesses for the guest designer challenge, and I'd love it if you'd participate!
The designer paper for this project is from K&Company's Wild Saffron line - I just can't get enough of this stuff!! There is a felt flower/embellishment in the corner that my friend Arin shared with me from a cool pack she bought last time she was visiting - Thanks Arin!
I covered the peanut container with the dp, then used my circle cutter to cut out the piece for the top. I measured the lid, set the measurement on the cutter.... and lo and behold it actually came out right!! I love when that happens. The scalloped square stamp fits the pink marvy scalloped square punch, very convenient!
I stamped the flowers ink chalk ink, then cut them out and glued them on the main image. The ends are curled up a little to give them some dimension. I added stickles to the flower centers and the dots on the frame.
I'd love to hear what you'd put in this container... my first thought is chocolate (of course), but are sooooo many other little goodies out there! Help me brainstorm and come up with a list of things to put in all the containers we make/alter. Post as many times as you think of something - I want a nice long list that we can all refer to whenever we make a box/container as a gift. Thanks for reading!
