Delightful Challenges

** Please scroll down to for the MTME Pretty Patterns #45 post **

Hi again!  Thanks for coming back.  I do so enjoy your visits.  This week's challenge at Delightful Challenges is a fun one.

Anything but a Card w/Valentine's Theme

Now, I've already shared my sentiments about Valentine's Day - not a huge fan.  But I am a huge fan of fun paper, cute images and chocolate!

I created this bag in a box by following a tutorial on SCS.  This was fun, easy to do and pretty quick.  You can make these for any occasion.  In fact, I think I might make another one with a baby theme.  There's a girl at work expecting, I think this would be adorable filled with binkies and travel sized baby powder and lotion.
