Anything but a card at A Spoonful of Sugar!

As most of you know, making anything other than a card is completely out of my comfort zone! But I do like to try new things and that's exactly what the challenge over at A Spoonful of Sugar made me do this week!  I umm'ed and ahhh'ed and couldn't decide what to make!  But after much procrastination, I decided to make a Valentine's cookie box for Steve (and me, if I'm honest, lol!).


 



I used that super sweet Elzybells teddy with heart and the new CC Designs Swiss Pixie Key & Heart stamp set (you can get from Bunny Zoe's here) - super cute aren't they?!!  And here is the inside of the box with yummy gingerbread heart cookies...






I really enjoyed making something other than card but I'll need more practice to speed up the process cos this took me aaaaages!!  I am entering this into Michelle's wonderful Make It Monday challenge where you just share your creativity!

That's it from me today - take a look at the other DT's gorgeous creations over the ASOS challenge blog

Stamps: Elzybells bear with heart, CC Designs Swiss Pixie Key & Lock set (buy here from Bunny Zoe's)
Mediums: Copics
Accents: Stampin' Up striped ribbon, gingham ribbon and crepe paper from stash
Tools: Fiskars border punch, My Favorite Things label die (buy here from Dies to Die For)
