Try It On Tuesday is getting smaller

…well actually our new Challenge at TIOT - 'Little Things Mean a Lot' is asking you to make some thing small - it would be helpful to put something by it to give us an idea of how small it is.
I have put a ruler by my little gift box
It started life as my 'emergency' handbag sweet box - 
 A quick paint and stencil session and it was ready for my flowers….

Some of Darcy's PA Eclectica flowers(EDY10) stamped onto under paper 
Stuck on randomly around the sides and gems added
Here it is with the gift wrapped in tissue inside - ready a little early so I will have to put it somewhere safe!(that I will remember!!!)

I hope you can join us this time with your take on this challenge! Do pop over to see what fabulous 'Little Things' the TIOT Design Team have made….and of course the rules and guidelines are there too!

Thanks for looking, Chris

Delightful little box, Chris - I love the colours you've used, and how the flowers go off around the edges.

What a delight! I love little things especially boxes. By doing what you did with this little cappuccino box, you have made it a lot more sturdy - a keepsake saver.
