Fairy Dust Box...

Butterflies are self propelled flowers. ~R.H. Heinlein
This week's Woodware USA Challenge is to make a Back to School project that is Anything But a Card...I ordered School Tots, but not in time to play with them for this project (I am a Master Procrastinator. ;) I decided to make a little Chocolate filled gift for a friend that is starting College classes...who doesn't need chocolate for class? I used Fairy Tots and decorated a DieCuts & More Circle Window Square is so easy, it is all cut out, scored and the window is done...all I did was stamp the butterflies and add the acetate! The stamped image didn't show up well against the bright colored candy, so I added a little Polka Dot Embossed circle of white paper behind it, letting a little of the acetate still show so the candy peeks out... I filled the box with some fun bright colored Sixlets that were leftover from a Pinata stuffing. I knew when I saw them in these bright fun colors that I wanted to use them for a crafty project. Here is a close up of the flowers, ribbon and image... Supplies:
Stamps: Fairy Tots (Woodware USA)
Paper: DieCut Box, Acetate, White CS
Ink: Staz-On, Copic Markers, White Pigment Ink
