Packaging gone Pink

For some odd reason, I've gone pink today ... I started off by making a fabric flower after seeing this post by Vicky at Blush.

I then decided to incorporate it in a late entry for the GC106 - Packaging Materials challenge over at Gingersnap Creations.

I've used a white mice sweetie tin (my husband's favourite - personally I think they're horrible, I mean they're not even real chocolate!)


I've covered it in Bo Bunny DP & embossed gold card, coloured and adhered my favourite Simply Sassy image (Hippie Chick), added a string of pink beads and the flower is adhered to a wooden stick (from one of those fragrance reed thingies).


A nice little pen pot for my messy desk.

Thanks for visiting.
Suze xx

Hi Suze
Let me thank you for visiting my Blog :)
As for white mice, I have to tell you that now and again I have a little weakness for them and I know, they are not even chocolate but for me kiddies chocolate or expensive chocolate, I'll take it all!!!
Great use of packaging.
Wishes
Lynne
