Flower Treat Container

Hello!  Today I have the second project from my To Die For class last Friday.  Remember, I featured the Fun Flower die from the Occasions Mini...which you'll want to get while you can because the mini is done at the end of the month!  Just click here and click on the "Shop Now" button on the top right to start shopping!

I have a HUGE amount of empty accessories containers, and I was inspired by projects that both Becky Roberts and Christy Daughtry have done in the past and came up with this...




Isn't it lurty?  The colors I chose are Daffodil Delight and Pear Pizzazz.  There's a scallop circle on the bottom of the container, which was stamped with some leaves (Pocket Silhouettes set).  The bottom of the container is covered with a piece of Pear Pizzazz DSP (from the In Color Stack).  The lip of the lid is adorned with the sweet Daffodil Delight Pom Pom Trim (you're gonna want to get this too when you're shopping for the die!).  Both the DSP and Pom Pom Trim are stuck to the container with Sticky Strip.

Now, for the gorgeous flower on the top!  That was cut with the fun Flowers die and Daffodil Delight cardstock.  There's one of each of the flowers on the die used to make this flower.  To get it so full and soft looking, we crunched up the flowers until the paper started to separate and then peeled them apart.  The edges were sponged with More Mustard ink.  Each flower is glued together with Tombow...just a dollop in the middle...so you can puff up the petals a bit.  The flower is finished off with a fabulous Pear Pizzazz button (from the Springtime Vintage buttons....you might as well add these to your order too because they're AWESOME!!!), some linen thread and a sweet little tag!


We put some little chocolate eggs in them at the class, but they would be perfect to give someone some jewellery (earrings, a necklace, etc). 

I should also let you know that if you don't have any empty accessory containers kicking around, you can order them!  They are in the catalogue with the organizational items and are called Stampin' Store containers.

So what do you think?  Do you love it as much as I do (and the ladies at the class did!)?

Have an inspired day!
