HSS #103 Challenge

This week's challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Anything But A Card- Gift Items.  

I saw one of these cuties made at the Leadership Convention a couple weeks ago and had to make one of my own. It is a cute container made with a strip of DSP attached to a button/brad container.  Then I added my ribbon and little tag and filled it with candy.

Here is a close up of the bottom so you can see the container.  I used a 3 1/2" x 9" strip of Twitterpated DSP and wrapped it around and adhered it with Sticky Strip.  So simple.  We made one of these at my last class.

Ink: Riding Hood Red, Basic Gray
Stamps: I Heart Hearts, Fabulous Phrases
Accessories:  Twitterpated DSP and mini buttons, Baja Breeze Seam Binding, White Bakers Twine, SU! Button Container

Happy Stamping,

Very clever! I have seen where they use the container to make a hat, etc. but not a taller container. TFS
