From the Scraps

After creating yesterday's layout, I was about to clean up when I decided to use the scraps to make something quick. Since V-day is coming up, I made a quick little treat box for my sister. It holds 3 Ghirardelli chocolate squares. I dyed the crocheted flower with Glimmer Mist. I am going to add a crinkly bow to the top once the ink is dried.


I still had some paper left over, so then I quickly whipped out a card to match. It felt good to not waste any of the paper that I had paid for and I didn't have much left to clean up. And a added bonus is that I now have 2 little gifts to give.


Thanks for looking-
