FLORAL CANDY BOX


I made this box to put candy and money in for my daughter's birthday.   I really went out of my comfort zone by going 3-D and by using primary colors.  The butterfly gems were given to me by Carri from DoubleClick AKA a Busy Bee CLICK HERE to view her amazing blog.  Thanks for the inspiration gems Carri.  I cut the box at 9.5" from Tie The Knot.  I didn't think it would be this big.  But I love it for candy or cookies.  The flowers are from Flower Shoppe-very 3D.
