Here they are... 24 more boxes!

No, I can't believe it either, but I did make another 24 boxes. This time they are to hand out as party favours at Tertia-Lee's birthday party. I found a tutorial on Splitcoast stampers for an all in one box, downloaded the template, tweaked it a bit and voila, here are my boxes.

The birthday girl hasn't seen them yet, but I hope she likes them as much as her invitations. The image is from the Magnolia summer club kit. I coloured the fairy Tilda's with my Copics. glitterefied their wings, cut them out and mounted them on foam squares. Its when I have to make so many of one thing that I really appreciate my Cricut. All the circles and scalloped circles were cut with my Expression.
Here they are, the side view of the boxes, aren't they sweet? The lid has a flower and some ribbon. The flower centre has each girl's name written on. All Cardstock is Bazzil and the dp is the leftovers from the exploding boxes that I made. The edge of the lid was punched with a Martha Stewart punch. Did you notice that I found a little patch of green grass to take the photo's? A sure sign that Spring is really on its way.

Lastly but certainly not least, here is my chocolate stand that hubby rescued from the dump. I love it, its just the right size for all my little embellishments. I am still in the process of rearranging it all to be workable and I am putting everything in smaller bottles (so that I can fit more on, but shhhh, don't tell DH! LOL) Its taking for EVER, but I think DH was right, it is a good idea to glue a sample of what is in the bottle on the lid, so that I don't have to go through every one when I look for something. I have been inspired by this and have even made a start at typing out the names of all my stamp sets and glueing them to the back of the CD covers that I am using to store them.
I'm off to glue more little thingies to more little lids. Enjoy your evening.
