Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!!!



WooHoo! I am so excited to be participating in my first Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!! The theme for this month is spring. Put a little spring in your step by using anything that reminds you of spring in a project. Perfect for today since it really felt like spring outside! I decided to make a little clear treat box. I saw the tutorial HERE at Splitcoast Stampers. I used some older Imaginense papers I had in my stash. I pulled out my Around and About Sentiment stamps from PTI. For the matching card I used the Limitless Labels set, which i'm discovering is NOT just for wrapping nuggets!!



Okay, scoring the acetate was NOT easy. I messed up totally once and then had a really hard time getting the folds to really be where I wanted them to be. Definitely a learning process! I topped the box with a cream ribbon and filled the box with jelly beans, perfect for spring!!




The card is about 4'x2.5' and I love that label stamp right in the middle. So perfect with the flowers!



Thanks for stopping by my blog today!! I cannot wait to visit everybody's blog and get a dose of Spring Inspiration!!
