A Little Favor

Create Spring Sat Challenges 002WOW…we are now officially more than half way through with the Create with Connie and Mary Spring Edition 2013 and this week..it was all about KITS!!!  There are so many fabulous kits in the mini and two of my favorites are the pop-up posies and the boutique boxes.  Since I used these for projects I made I had some leftovers and put them together for my little favorite.

I put together the box but instead of having it ‘tall’ I put it together so the opening would be on the ‘long’ side.  I did a scallop from the Tasteful Trim Die in Pool Party and wrapped it around the top.  I cut a 3/8″ strip from the paper the box came from and added that as the handle using gold brads.  The flower is two of the Calypso Coral Flowers and a small ‘cupcake’ flower.  The button is from the boxes kit and it is tied with the Baker’s Twine from the Boutique Boxes kit.  Just for you is the stamp that came with the Pop-Up Posies bundle stamped in Pool Party and Soft Suede, punched with large oval punch and layered onto a Soft Suede Scallop Oval.  The cool thing about this little box…it really is like a mini Easter basket as it can hold three fun sized bars!
