This will stay on top until May 1st- check out my sweet deal!
Hello! I hope you are off to a great start to your weekend. I'm afraid I don't have a card to show you today, but I do have this cute box!
(click to enlarge)
I got the template from Jen Del Muro, and it was super easy to make. You can find the template here. The hardest part was deciding on an image to use! I finally chose to use the smelling sweet image from squigglefly.
I did my handle a little differently than Jen did and just punched two small holes to thread my ribbon through. I used a label nestabilities die to cut my window, and embossed the box with the swiss dots embossing folder.
I colored the girl with copic markers and cut her out and just glued her to the outside of the box. The little tag was made with a Stampendous stamp.
The box is filled with some rose scented sachet which I thought went perfectly with the image. I was originally going to put a rose candle in the box, but I couldn't find any rose scented ones that fit. The box will hold 4 tea light candles, and I suppose I could have put a different scent in there but for some reason I was stuck on the rose thing. I think when the smell runs out of the sachet I will empty it out and put in some tea lights and give it to a friend. It was fun making a box though; I haven't done that for a while.
I don't have any pressing obligations this weekend. Tonight we are going to eat at a friend's house so I don't even have to cook dinner! On second thought, I'll empty this sachet out now and give her some scented tea light candles in this box as a thank you for cooking for us!
Enjoy your Saturday! Thanks for looking!
