Sweet Surprise

Hello friends!

Just in time for our third Papertrey Princesses challenge, I bring you.. the second! Better late than never.

I love this challenge, which came from Lee! We were challenged to create a three-dimensional project and to take inspiration from the objects we were planning to put inside. Here's the link to Lee's challenge.

I snooped around the kitchen (looking for treats) and found my husband's favorite - a bag of Lindt white chocolate Lindor truffles. Perfect to package, and perfect for my current obsession with the color yellow.


I used this pattern for a crayon box, put together by Jen del Muro. It was simple!

I embossed the swirly vine from With Sympathy and then added a row of gold pearls around the window. The sentiment, from Cupcake Collection, was embossed in gold. I tied it all up with some of the new silk ribbon from PTI - very nice! I loved the combination of yellow, white, and gold and it was fun to make something other than a card. This was a great challenge, Lee - thank you!

And thank you for your visit, I hope you have a great day. Michele is hosting the next Papertrey Princesses challenge and I can't wait to see what she comes up with!
