Cupcake Kind of Day

(Please scroll down to the post that I wrote late last night. I don't want it to be missed.) This is a little gift box that I made for a friend who has been going through a rough patch, recently. I thought that she would appreciate a little cheering up, so I gathered up some supplies, and set to work. She said that it made her day, so I guess it was a success! :)

The box was, I believe, a 4.5 in cube. I used two pieces of 4.5 x 9.5 CS and scored at 4.5 and 9, giving a 1/2 in strip to adhere the pieces together. The bottom was a 5.5 in square, scored around at 1/2 in to adhere to the bottom of the box. (The corners were cut out to make folding easier.)

The image is a Chichibouli (Cecily Cinnamonsticks), from Stamping Bella, and she's colored with Copics. There is also lots of shimmer on the image that you can't see in this pic. I cut out the scallop oval with my Nestie die on a double layer of cardstock slightly lower than the top of the die, so that it made a little card. The sentiment is from Impression Obsession.
The little items came from Target's Dollar Spot, but I loved the cutie packaging. I knew that it would be cute with one of the many cupcake sets that I have! The green "grass" was some Celery paper that I cut in tiny strips and crimped. PP is from SU!, as is the ribbon and brads. I sponged the Celery handle for some depth.

Well, that's it for today! Tomorrow should bring you a SSC card, so I'll see you back here then! Till later!
