My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge

GOOD EVENING EVERYBODY :)
I've had this silly little urge to make a box for over a week now, sort of like a weird craving for ice cream! I didn't know what kind of box I would make, I knew I just wanted to make a box, ANY box !... but with all the family in town for the holidays, I had so little time for crafting! But alas, the last load of family was taken to the airport today and I finally got to satisfy my craving ! OH! and it was so delicious to make ! Isn't it great when you finally get to feed that crafting fix ?!
So I decided to make my box for Robyn's My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge! And OH MY WORD I  have less than 2 hours before the submissions close !
The challenge was to make a project using Robyn's favorite colors : Pink, Green, Brown and an optional color. So I made this cute little gift box designed to hold one homemade chocolate chip cookie ! Don't you just love the sentiment!  I think I will make a few of these and give them to my co workers :)

I used the Tags, Bags Boxes & More Cart for the box, cut @ 9 inches and a piece of acetate cut to size for the window. The cookie is actually the center of one of the flowers in the Sweet Treats Cart found on page 52 cut @ 3 1/2 inches. Cut with two shades of brown it looks just a chocolate chip cookie ! Then I used a scalloped circle punch on one side to look like bite marks! I also inked the edges for more dimension. The ribbon is from Micheal's and it has little pink stitching marks on it.
I really love how it came out ! Except I see that in the picture my torquiose green paper looks more like blue! I hope Robyn won't mind too much !!! LOL !!! Hmmm...now I think I have a craving for chocolate chip cookies ! LOL !!!
Pin It!
