Dare to be Square...

that's the theme of this week's challenge at
Hop on over there and check out the fabulous
design team work, and of course you can see the range of gorgeous,
Funky Fairy downloads at
Funky Fairys Papercrafts.
My entry is this cute little box, with lid.
I used the basic box template, kindly provided by Mel
and replaced a square in the lid with clear plastic,
stitched in place,
so you could see inside the box.
To complement the 'squares' theme I used this lovely
polka dot paper from Funky Fairys 'cherish' collection.

I was going to fill my box with little chocolate eggs,
but then I found a couple of small candles in the cupboard
that fit perfectly inside.

I stamped them with the cute hedgehog stamp,
from the Penny Black - Bubbly set.
I also discovered that putting a sheet of coloured paper through
my cross shredder, gives me a really cute filler,
for inside the box.

Then I wrapped it all up with ribbon and added a little tag.
