Funky Hand January 2010 Challenge

Whilst blog hopping the other day, I came across Funky Hand's Challenge Blog.  Before Christmas, I downloaded Funky Hand's 'Funky Christmas Time' papers - I particularly loved the spots and the big red swirls.  So when I landed on their Challenge Blog, I thought, why not?  Their January challenge was to use spots and stripes and something Funky.

The teapot cards I sent to my Girlies had the desired effect and we're getting together for dinner, chez moi, in February.  Because it's always quite a long time between get-togethers, I like to put a little something on the table for them, to show them how special they are to me.  So, with this in mind, I made three little boxes:

The boxes were made using Papertrey Ink's 'My Timeless Templates' 'Rounded Wrap-Up' template, which prints easily on to a single A4 sheet and is sooo easy to assemble. 

The spots and swirls are from Funky Hand and the black stripes are from Pink Petticoat.

I made co-ordinating flowers and leaves from the three papers and added a little ribbon closure. 

The boxes will be filled with heart-shaped chocolates and placed on the table, as table favours.  I think they're cute and I know the Girlies will love them.

So, I'm off to enter the Funky Hand Challenge and then to see 'Sherlock Holmes' at the cinema - aaah, a lazy Sunday.

Happy crafting.
