DT post #95 for Mo's-Anything But a Card

Once again it is my turn to host this weeks challenge. I love to dabble in all types of paper projects so I thought "Anything But a Card" would be perfect for this weeks challenge. I took out my Big Shot Pro and used this Match Book Die to make this box. It is larger than the one from Stampin Up so it can be used for so many different things. I made this for my son's girlfriend, she loved the shaker card I did a few weeks ago, so not only did I make another shaker but this little box for her in her favorite color as well. I used the image Flower Girl which you can find HERE isn't she sweet and placed chocolate mints inside. Now who doesn't love chocolate, and when she's done with the chocolate, she can put it on her desk and place anything from paper clips to hair clips inside. So here is my take on this weeks challenge Anything But A Card

Here is a picture of the box closed:

Hi Debbie!! certainly challenged me, girl!! Unlike you, I'm not a "dabbler"!! LOL!! You sure got me excited about this, tho! I may have to get one of those dies to make a box like yours. It's the glitter paper (well, I love to look at it...but I was giggling when I imagined your craftspace covered with purple glitter! hehehe!) Your coloring is the design...and scrolls! You rocked it, sistah!! Hugs. Pat

Hey, Deb! So look who has a sweet tooth too...he he! I always seem to think about how I could tuck in some chocolate when I make!
Your box here is cute as a button... do you people say that? Just love it! This color combo is really lovely and elegant and your image is so beautifully colored! Lovely creation, Deb!
Thanks for sharing with me your hiding places for chocolate:) Unfortunately my little one is not interested in anything edible; the day when he'll be looking in the closets for food will be a truly speacial day to celebrate!:))
Yo have a happy weekend darlin!
Hgs, Iulia
