Cupcake Box Thanks!

I'm finishing up my assignment for Creative Cuts and More. This month's challenge was to use the new Cupcake Box die. It is so cute - comes with a little insert to hold the cupcake inside the box, and a see-through lid to view all the yummy goodness :)

I decided to take it in a different direction, though - I decorated the box with some patterned paper from the 7 gypsies "Capri" line and a piece of orange ribbon. Then I made these flowers from the same paper line, attached them to wooden dowels that I had covered with floral wire and held them in place by putting a styrofoam square inside the box.

To complete the orange-ness (is that a word?), I filled the leftover space with some tasty Orange Creme Hershey's Kisses - have you tried them? To finish off the project, I stamped "Big Thanks" (by The Cat's Pajamas) on a wooden tag, inked the edges, and voila!

This is a completely adorable project! I just love those flowers! And that particular line of paper is the best. I used it in a class I taught awhile back. TFS!!
