Beary Nice Box

Scroll down for the free download for today. Also, don't forget my blog candy!

I saved these plastic containers from takeout barbecue. I thought they might make nice containers for a candy gift. I added some gingham paper and a bear image from Cardmaking and Papercraft colored with colored pencils. I added some Prima flowers. I made a tag for the gift with additional stamps from the same set. I attached it to the container with a ribbon. There's gingham paper and ribbon around the outside, but it didn't photograph well, so you'll just have to take my word for it.

I'd like to enter this project in the following challenges:
1. 365 cards - day 154 sketch
2. The Crafty Pad #82 - ribbon and flowers
3. One Stitch at a Time #24 - a little pink
4. Just Cute Bears #28 - anything but square plus a tag
Happy Scrapping!
