Three Challenges!

Hello All! I have a little Easter treat to share today. It is a quick little project, but oh so cute! This would be a great little treat to give to a co-worker or to hand out at your family Easter celebration. I made it using the Pillow Box die in my Big Shot and the Everyday Enchantment DSP (my favorite DSP of all time)! I also punched a window in the box with my Extra-Large Oval punch and used the oval folder from the Designer Frames embossing folders set (how awesome is it that the folder and punch coordinate perfectly?) to accent it a little. I used glue dots to attach a piece of window sheet inside the treat container (to keep the candy from falling out), added the Happy Easter sentiment, and finished it off with some sweet little flowers made with the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack and some pearls. What do you think?

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Teeny, Tiny Wishes
Paper: Everyday Enchantment DSP, Very Vanilla CS, Wild Wasabi CS, Pear Pizzazz CS, Poppy Parade CS, Calypso Coral CS, Peach Parfait CS, Pool Party CS, Baja Breeze CS 
Ink: Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Big Shot, Designer Frames EF, Extra-Large Oval punch, Window sheet, Word Window punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon punch, Itty Bitthy Shapes punch pack, basic pearls, glue dots
My Inspiration: This adorable Matchbox made by Jill Franchett
