Fancy Favor Blossom Basket

Ahhh, it's sunny here today and even though it's still a little cool, it makes me think that Spring is coming!  Yay!   Now there is a theme challenge for subscribers over on the Occasions 2012 edition of Create with Connie and Mary for "A Little Treat for Someone Sweet"; of course I thought of using flowers and the beautiful floral prints in the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper for my project. Did you follow all that?  lol!  You're good!!

I diecut the versatile Fancy Favor Bigz XL Die (#115965) in Baja Breeze for my treat box and the Lattice Bigz Die (#115965) in white to cover both the front and back of the box. 
The flower is punched with the new Blossom Punch (#125603) from the Occasions 2012 Mini Catalog;  I used the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, Riding Hood Red and Blushing Bride then layered them, adding a small Island Indigo flower and an Everyday Enchantment brad (from the Sale-A-Bration bonus pack free with a $50. order).  The leaves are Lucky Limeade cardstock punched with the same Blossom Punch then cut apart and tucked underneath the flower.
 I added a 3/4" wide cardstock handle covered with the Blushing Bride ribbon and finished it off with tiny bow/knots of the same on each side.  This is such an easy box to make and the Fancy Favor die not only cuts the cardstock, it scores it for you so there's no problem knowing where to fold and join it!!

I'm pleased with the way the treat box turned out;  this or a similar box could hold all sorts of treats or treasures to give to someone.  With Easter, May Day, Mother's Day, not to mention Graduation, Father's Day and retirements (not to mention birthdays, parties, showers,...) coming up in the next few months, this would be a very useful addition to your gifting arsenal!  Whew, I better get busy myself!!

All of the products to make this box are available on my secure online official Stampin' Up! website/store HERE.   When you order, be sure to include a free Sale-a-Bration bonus gift for every $50. you spend; your order will be delivered directly to your door!!  You may view the Sale-A-Bration brochure HERE.  Please contact me with any questions:  fun stampin @ cox. net (remove the spaces)

Thanks for visiting today!  Wishing you blue skies and sunshine too!
