Paper Cutz Challenge #66

Good morning!'s so cold outside this morning! Looks like winter is finally getting here. I thought we were never going to get cooler weather here in Arkansas. I'm always ready for the cold weather, then when it gets here, I wish it was warm again. Typical human behavior, I suppose. Anyway, on to our challenge. This week's challenge is to make a card, layout or other paper project that is a get well them and has a stamped or cut out image of something that flies. You are free to use any colors that you wish. If you go to the Paper Cutz Challenge blog, you'll get lots of inspiration and when you enter your own project, you'll go into the drawing for a prize at the end of the month! Now, onto my project.....

I found the tutorial for this treat box on the Splitcoast Stampers website. They have so many awesome projects, so if you have never checked it out, you totally should! The hardest part of this project was deciding what patterned paper to use. LOL. I thought this box would make a perfect get well project and would be ideal for holding a packet of chicken noodle soup mix. Of course, little did I know that I was all out of soup mix! Luckily, I keep vegetable soup mix on hand for making spinach dip. However, I didn't like the dark blue packaging with my lightly colored box, so I decided to make a label for the soup and think it turned out really cute!

Project recipe:
Random patterned paper from my vast collection
white and green cardstock from Recollections
Spellbinders pendant die
"get well soon" Cuttlebug die
Martha Stewart butterfly punches
Fiskars scalloped border punch
"to perk you up" stamp
Tuxedo Black ink from Memento
pearl embellishments
pop dots
ribbon from my large stash
Now it's your turn! Make a get well project and enter it at the Paper Cutz Challenge blog and you will be entered into a drawing for a prize at the end of the month. It's that easy! Good luck.....
