I love creating my own patterned paper...I can make it exactly the color and style I need! I knew I wanted to use red...seems like a classic "teacher color". Added some pink and gold to "Spring" it up a little. I used my clear cardstock from Papertrey Ink to create a sleeve for the box. (This wasn't a scrap, I confess...my first time using it. I love it!) Then it was a matter of die cutting and punching all kinds of solid little shapes and flowers from my scraps to embellish the top of the sleeve. I couldn't resist getting matching colored m&m's to put in the box.I made a little matching mini-card with a Spellbinders die (Labels One). It measures only about 3 3/8" square, but it's a cutie!Fun little project...two more to make...can't wait to give these away!
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you all are having a very blessed Easter weekend!
