chickadee, chickadoo...

...another fun project just for you!

Welcome back for another day of May Arts/Our Craft Lounge Blog Hopping!
I have a treat for you today...
...a treat box that is.

I stamped the zig zag pattern from the Every Heartbeat set on the kraft cardstock with Frayled Burlap Distress Ink -  then cut out the template.  I also sponged the edges before assembling.  Did you notice on the ends of the hang tag -- I used pinking scissors! They are coming back in style...at least in my craft room. ;)  I cut the ends of the ribbon on the tag the same.

OK...now I gotta whine for a minute.  
  It drives me CRAZY that one side of the green net ribbon on the front of the box is bigger than the other!  But since I stuck it on there with my hot glue gun...it is what it is. UUUGH! So not perfect!  LOL.

The flowers are from the Fabulous Florals set.  The chick & sentiment are from the Hey Chick set.

Very neat. I love it. What a great idea. Dont worry about the net ribbon. I love it. It gives it a little edge. grass isnt perfect in every way. and thats what it reminds me of the flower coming out of the grass. You did a wonderful job on this. Turned out Beautiful.

Love the 3D project! Love the ribbon, if you had not said, then I would not have noticed! But you have, but now it makes it unique! The next one you make will look different even though it was made the same! Thanks for sharing, live it!

OMG this is AMAZING! I would have never noticed the uneven ribbon if you hadn't pointed it out! Good Lord I need a smidgeon of your creativity. Just a smidgeon. You can spare it can't ya?

No, no, no....this is just perfect the way it is! The ribbon ends give it a whimsical look (just keep telling yourself that!)

Awesome project! I really LOVE it! Didn't really notice the ribbon issue, until you mentioned it. I assumed you put it on an angle to get that look! ;o)

I never noticed that 1 side of the ribbon was larger than the other until you mentioned it. Even when I did notice it, it just looks like it's due to a camera angle or something.
