Candy Treat Box

I love this little box.  It is great for a small gift or a little treat for anyone you know.  I love how versatile it could be.  Just by changing the color and accessories you get a completely different look.  You can find the directions here at Chic' n Scratch (one of my favorite sites to visit).

The words come in a great new stamp set called Whimsical Words.  This set is only available until March 31, 2010, during sale-a-bration.  This set has many wonderful words that can be used for many different occasions or events.

I made a couple of changes from Angie's example.  I have had some paper that I picked up at Hobby Lobby that I wanted to try with rich razzleberry (in-color) and thought this was a great time to try.  This box did not want to stay closed with the 1/2" circle closure.  I decided that it needed a little more weight and so I made a faux button to use as the closure, and it looks great also.  The flowers are just some silk flowers that I got at the store and colored one with the rich razzleberry marker to match the box.  I love using the 5-petal flower punch to make leaves to go with any flower, it just works so great.  I layered all the flowers and leaves together and connected with the brad.  I then attached this to the box using a medium glue dot.

This box was very fun and I plan to make more with different papers.  I can't wait to play and see what I can come up with next.
