I Want Candy!

Happy Saturday to you and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner!
Before we get started with my project for today, I want to invite you over to the fabulous celebration going on over at Pink By Design.  In celebration of their 1 Year Anniversary, the design team is putting on a Pink By Design Marathon!  There will be a new post by one of the talented design team members posted every hour throughout the won't want to miss it!
Now...on to my project.
Do you know anyone with a sweet tooth?  Well, I do...and she has a birthday coming up pretty soon. So, let me show you what I've made for her...

This cute little box started out as a plain, plastic, organizing box.  I picked mine up at Michael's, you know, when I just happened to be in there.  Here's what it looked like before I got busy...

So, first thing was to cover the inside and outside of the lid.  I used the cute "Sweet" paper stack from DCWV and Terrifically Tacky Tape.  Using the Cricut Cartridge "Sweet Shop", I cut the cute little layered mat at 3.5 inches.  I added stitching lines with a while gel pen, gems and a couple of lime green brads.  The candy in the center of the mat was cut at 2.25 inches and is just the right size for my stamped sentiment, Happy Birthday.  This stamp is from the Kitchen Puns stamp set from Pink By Design.  I used some orange twine (also from Pink By Design) on each end of the candy.

The lollipops are also cut from "Sweet Shop" and are cut at 4.5 inches.  I used the Polka Dots embossing folder to add some texture.  I also removed the stick portion of the image and added real lollipop sticks!  Again, I tied them up with that great orange twine and added a tag.  The tag is stamped with the sentiment "Love" which is from the Faith stamp set by PBD.  I love the candy along the bottom of the box. They are cut at 2.25 inches and covered in Glossy Accents...yummy!

Some ribbon, a few buttons here and there and my fabulous white gel pen, and there you go!  And, if you're thinking that the outside of this box is cute, wait till you see the inside....

Can you say Sugar Rush?

Before I go, I need to announce the two winners from last week's give away.  Each winner will receive a 10 dollar Gift Certificate to the Pink By Design Store!  The winners are...

  13. I am glad I have company with the sweet tooth condition that ails me. :) This card is totally cute. Love that you used real lollipop sticks. And, as a fellow candy addict, I love that box of goodies. Fabulous creation, Tanya!

  14. That is a pretty "sweet" gift you've created! (Hey, I had to stick with the "Kitchen Puns" theme, right? ;)) With my comedy out of the way, I wanted to say that I love the different levels of embellishments you added - from the embossing, to the lollipop sticks, it really makes the project stand out! Thank you for sharing and for the awesome giveaway!
