Sharing Some Spring Love

I'd been working on another project and had some scraps laying around from the Flower Layers die; they'd been on my desk for several days when inspiration finally hit!  I needed a quick gift for some friends and this was perfect.  I liked how it turned out so much that I used all of my Treat Boxes making them - I just couldn't stop!  I love when that happens - I went from needing a gift, to finding someone I could give a gift to because I just couldn't keep these to myself!  It's one of the reasons I love Stampin' Up! so much.  It really inspires me to be more generous with my time.

I added some Sticky Strip under the flap to help keep the ribbon in place.

I added some Pretty in Pink ink to my center flower using a sponge dauber and then used my distressing tool on each of the flowers to help give it a bit of a vintage look.

I adhered the flower to the box using a Pop Up glue dot (which also helped to keep the brad in place) and I was all done!
