(please click on the photo for clearer resolution). Experience has taught me that the easiest way to keep the flap of the box closed is to find some cute image, label or tag (I used one from Stampin' Up's retired 'Cute & Curly' set along with their curly label punch) and pop it up with foam tape and then thread a piece of twine or ribbon through the space and tie it on top - festive no? This cute little guy hold 3 Ghirardelli chocolate squares in flavors of your choosing - YUM! I am also entering this Ghirardellia chocolate box into Moxie Fab World's Holiday Food & Treat Wrap Challenge (they allow entries posted within 4 weeks).
The next card satisfied the requirements of three DTGD challenges on SCS:
(the inside says 'the more you have, the harder it is to find your keys - LOL!) I had fun paper piecing the purses from Skipping Stones Design's Birthday Purses set and used a CB 'Houndstooth' EF for a patterned background. Not sure I love the colors on this one - I had pictured it coming out a LOT differently in my head... but it satisfies the requirements of the following additional challenges as well:
- Paper Playtime - use patterned paper (mine is from Echo Park's 'Victoria Gardens' collection), and
- Party Time Tuesdays - anything goes.
