Try it out Tuesday - Gift box with "Apelsin Choklad Skorpor"

Good evening ladies!

I tried to get out of the office early today to be home in time to finish this weeks project for TIOT at Susana's Store Blog. Well - of course I did not manage to get home until 19.30 - so what should I do? I really wanted to be able to play with this fun challenge - so just a quick sandwish and off to my craft room ;-)

This week we should make some kind of package or a small gift wrapping, box or bag.
We should aso use any supplies from
Susana's store and a *NEW* Karen Lockhart image.
I need to be honest here right away - my new KL has not yet arrived - so what should I do??! I could not skip this project because of this - right? Instead I decided to use one from the previous collection - the cute little Chintz Butterfly. So it might be that you will see 2 postings from me this week on the same subject ;-)

Have you seen the DPs from the Laura Ashley Contemporary set that Susana carries? I just love them and that's why I used three sheets to make this box: one for the base, the second one for the inside of the box and the third one for the lid.

I added a choc chip ribbon (SU) around the edges of the base + around the middle of the base. Then I cut out the butterfly with my Nesties and added some Coffee Shimmerz around the edges of the circle. I coloured the little butterfly with my copics and added some stickles on the green part and Shimmerz on the white wings.

First I thought of adding something for the bath to go inside of the box, but could not find
anything that would fit. So instead I decided to give away "Apelsin Choklad Skorpor". What's that you say? Well - it's Orange Chocolate Rusk in Swedish. Wish I could send you all some to try for your coffee or tea.

I hope that you will play along with us and if you do - please upload your project on SCS or PCP with the key word "TIOT3".

Also don't forget the Lockhart Promo that Susana is having.
Kram och dröm sött" / Hug and sweet dreams
PS. Oops - I realized that I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the box - I will do that tomorrow and add to this posting.
