Makeup for the Weekend 4, Treat Box

This week's Makeup for the Weekend challenge is to make a treat bag/ box. I knew what I wanted to do, but realized in my design process that I had not needed any stamps. Uh, gotta stamp. So, I used the PMS Swirl on the oval die cuts. It truly did add some dimension and brought the pumpkin to life.

I just used a square piece of cardstock and scored at 2" all around, trimmed the corners, and put the box together. It ended up being larger than I wanted, but I just had to find lots more filler and candy to place inside. The ovals and leaves/stem are Spellbinder dies.

The treat bag was filled with some caramels and then tied with some gingham ribbon (my fave these days). It was then finished off with a button and some jute. I consider myself button challenged, but I managed to use one with it not looking so bad.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this weekend. If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword makeup4theweekend03. Also, be sure to link it up to the PMS blog so we can all see it.
