Paper Pretties Monday

Good Morning!  I hope you had a great weekend.  Mine was OK, not as productive as I'd hoped in the craft area, but other than that it was a good one.

I have a fun project to share with you for this week's Paper Pretties challenge.  This week we're making Anything But a Card.  I love these challenges!

This week there is a re-release of a super cute image by ARTish.  This is Garner.  I'm posting a picture of him so you can see what he actually looks like.


And now what I did with him....



I did find inspiration from a great tutorial on SCS for a Flat Back Treat box.  A lot of fun to make!  I dressed Garner up in Christmas cheer and then used a couple of punches to turn his spring-y bouquet into a festive bouquet of poinsettias.


What do you think?  I rarely use my punches and I don't know why because they can be a lot of fun!  I used a Gold Paper Pen from my Raisin Boat drawer to create the center.  The results pleased me a lot.  This box will be perfect to stuff a Hershey's Kiss and a tube of lip gloss into for a certain daughter I know.
